Have you done a virus scan? It may be one that randomly choses new names.

and run virus scan with system restore disabled as they can be placed in there first.

its been like this for 3 days, NAV does not pick it up

the only recent program installed was the "freebie" microsoft onenote 2003

Do a search for it on your pc and see where it is located - it may have further info with it.

And check if it is listed in MSConfig under the startup tab.

just search my computer using search tool for all files/programmes ==no trace

nothing in msconfig either
