    What is W98SYS?

    I found this process, and subsequently an EXE, on a PC that has been running reeeaaaallllyyyy slow most of the day. I haven't found it on any of the other W2K PCs in the office. I am additionally suspicious as the icon is the hammer & sickle for the USSR flag, inside a black pentagram inside the Star of David.

    I can't find a reference on the anti-virus sites. Any thoughts? TIA.

    That's it! Thanks Joe. However I've misrepresented you and posted my thanks to Leif at that site. Sorry. <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Leif on 16-Mar-04 09:34. )</P>Evening folks..

    First off Hi! and thanks for the.. well.. thanks. Just to let you know as well the site does now have slightly shorter URL of:

    http://www.codephish.info

    And because that story will eventually scroll of the front page you can get to it direct via:
