Problem with a potential virus...

  Seraphim 02:34 08 Apr 2006

Hi. I'm running Windows XP SP2.

In the Task Manager the other day, I noticed a process taking place called "Isass.exe" that I didn't recognise. I typed it into and got this:

"Process File: isass.exe
Process Name: Optix.Pro virus

isass.exe is registered as the Optix.Pro virus which carries in it's payload, the ability to disable firewalls and local security protections, and a backdoor capability.
For More Info About isass.exe - Get WinTasks 5 Pro Now!

Recommendation: DISABLE AND REMOVE IMMEDIATELY. This process is most likely a virus or trojan.
To get control over your running programs we suggest WinTasks"

Both a fully updated free version of AVG and Avast! Home edition 4.6 have failed to detect this potential virus and I can't end the process of Isass.exe in Task Manager.

Any ideas?
