An icon for 'core.zip' has appeared on my desktop.
I am 99% certain I haven't d/loaded it and I certainly haven't opened or extracted it. Google reveals this click here
Anyone throw any light on it?
Thanks.

Do not open !

D/loaded a couple of aircraft zips for fs9 yesterday, but I always scan before opening.
I see properties show time date as 1440 yesterday, but I don't recall noticing it before now.

And the size is 1.9mbs
Thanks for link

Would anything like that normally appear as a zip on the desktop?

  skidzy 21:54 18 Jul 2007

I think i would just delete it,better safe than sorry.

Have you opened any attachtments in your email ?

I think best policy here is to run HJT click here and post the scan log click here and let the real experts examine your log.

  skidzy 21:56 18 Jul 2007

Yes it is possible if its part of a download.

I cannot find any other reference to this except being a worm.

Do you use any p2p software ?

  muddypaws 22:16 18 Jul 2007

No p2p.
HJT might be as well as you say.
Might do some win searches on a few of the entries in your link.
Haven't had any emails for two days ( unusually quiet!) and no attachments.
So will delete.
Thanks for help.
Wont 'resolve' just yet.

Chances are you wont find anything unless you have executed the file by opening it.

But do check the entries though.
