Do a search on your pc for it; see what folder it is in. Also do a spyware check: click here

the file is located in c:windows\Prefetch and contains a load of exe. files. i have never seen this before in over three years of computing, i find it strange that it should appear now. what could it be?

second best - my apologies for that; I scanned your post too quickly.

Can you disable it? See when it starts up.

A useful program for this is Mike Lin's startup control panel - from click here

I don't know anything about poor.exe, nor can I find out about it via google.
