  1. this is bullshit, never download anything from a non-reputable website to take out viruses, spyware is under the name ave.exe, but i cxant find it i am sure that that is the spyware though

  2. Jack : in some cases file name changes. On heavy infected machines, the process might use rootkit techniques to hide from task manager and some antivirus scans.
