Nope.
Random renaming itself malware, is my guess. Had a similar one this evening, why are you asking?

But ya never know...if an app has released an update.

agobot yes, is possible...

Always:
Please go to at least two of these sites and run an online Virus Scan.
Be sure to have the AutoFix box(es) checked.

Well dont think its agobot as this found nothing:

http://www.f-secure.com/tools/f-bot.exe

Anyways i dont think its anything bad. Appears to do nothing. Not connecting to internet and not running any werid processes or anything.

Nothing on startup or services.

Processguard detects nothing same with all the comman anitspyware tools.

About to start scanning using online tools though.

Well so far:



Also F-Prot and Nod32 found nothing.

Also nothing found with all the common antispyware tools.

Sill have to run the other scans seeing as that one took five hours. Sad
