bla.exe - what is it?

  Chris Webster 21:29 11 May 05

I've just been looking found my c drive and i've noticed a file named bla.exe created 7th May 2005. Does anyone know what it is, and if so, do i need to be concerned?

Windows XP sp2
Norton AV
Ad Aware SE Personal - all up to date.

Thanks, Chris.

I right clicked on 'bla.exe' file and deleted it. I then turned off system restore and did a full Norton AV scan in safe mode and it came up clear. I also ran Ad-Aware SE, CCleaner and then a reg cleaner/optimizer.

Is this all i need to do and should my system be clean now?

How 'bla.exe' ended up on my system i just don't know as i've only visited my normal sites, and i've not opened any suspect emails.

Thanks, Chris.

Chris Webster,

that should have got rid of your problem.

There are a lot of files seemingly just appear, on a p.c. with all a/v, and or spyware/malware prog's up to date. (i've had a couple myself).

You've obviously got the latest and greatest software to counter these problems.

Good luck for the future.
