IQXY.EXE

Does anyone know what this program is?
It is on my PC in the C:\Windows\All users\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp folder.
I have run MSconfig and tried to stop it starting but it always seems to be running.
I am running Freedom Firewall through a Netgear Router, and I don't think it's spywear!?!? But would like to see if anyone knows what it could be.
No details when I right-click and click on properties are available, looked on the web no info!?!?
Any Ideas?

Regards

It's not listed on the Symantec website...:-)

A further thought - ICQ files have somewhat similar file/dll etc names although I can't see an IQXY.EXE version; wondering if the C has gone missing if you do have ICQ?

I'm running windows 98, erm don't think I've got any ICQ files/programs.

Just tried to delete the file and error message pops up cannot delete the specified file is being used by windows.

Update your Anti Virus and do a full scan.

The reason i say this is there is no mention of IQXY.exe on Google or any other start up lists.

This suggests the name is a random creation and only viruses generate random file names.

Thanks Jester it turned out to be Bugbear, I am trying to remove it at the moment!!!
Freedom antiVirus didn't catch it, so I'll be putting in a moan to them, not as if no-one knows about the bugbear irus is it!!
