Hello. It seems that I have the above named file located in the C:\WINDOWS\system32 directory. From information that I could find, this is apparently a serious trojan,
br>
"conime.exe is a process which is registered as the BFGhost 1.0 Remote administration backdoor tool. This backdoor application can allow attackers to access your computer, stealing passwords and personal data. It is a registered security risk and should be removed immediately."
br>
Now I'm very confused here as I've also looked more into this and its the 'Microsoft Console IME'. Alot of websites say that this file is a serious trojan and should be removed immediately, but then a couple say that it is safe. I'm just concerned about this file since sometimes I find it occasionally running in the background when I go into Task Manager, and I get very paranoid with certain processes I'm not fimiliar with normally.
br>
Adaware, SpybotSD & my Norton Antivirus 2005 never seems to pick this file up everytime I do a scan, so can I say that it is perfectly safe? If not, how do I get rid of it permantly?

is also a system file

If you type start>search and look for it you will see it in i386 files as well as service pack files

I don't think you have a virus here

If you are in doubt, check your file size, version, date etc against this click here If they are the same, then you need not worry.
