    Querry over exe file

    A colleague has noticed a some exe files in his Winnt/ temp folder which he is suspicious of, purely because of the icon ( I think it is a dog!)

    I searched and found 3 of them, all have different names. Looking the properties it doesn't provide me with any info on them. Any ideas?

    Re: Querry over exe file

    Since it's in the Temp folder, I would recommend quitting all applications, then delete all files in that folder.

    Note: does your colleague use Trend Micro anti-virus software? I found a mention that it creates an exe with a random name and a dog icon on each reboot, to confuse malware that looks for a file with a fixed name.
