    This thread got a bit side tracked from the first post, right?

    twunk_32.exe is from a worm called: W32.Blackmal.C@mm. The worm uses its own SMTP engine to email itself to all the email addresses listed in MSN Messenger, Yahoo Pager, as well as in all the files whose extensions are either .htm or .dbx. (I got this info from Symantec).

    wscsvc32.exe is trojan/spyware. Try scanning these with an antivirus and antispyware programs.

    If you are going to change the partitions' name from fat32 to ntfs you should use partition magic. It's safer to use and don't have to worry much about losing data. I have used it before and you can install up four operating systems with four different partitions on the same hdd.

    Sorry about my earlier post; got side tracked myself. :/

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Cider,

    Please remember that the malware guys aren't that inventive these days.....it's all about money rather than reputation and pride?

    They just re-hash and obfuscate existing stuff in many cases.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Yes, I also got those results for twunk_32.exe but I just didn't know which to put up. I thought if I put this one up people would be more cautious with their system files and scan their computers in case of any threats.

    Plumb forgot about this thread. I can't even remember what I did with this unit. Oh, yeah, think I backed up the data and formatted in NTFS then reinstalled.

    I'm tired of lookin' at viruses. Especially PAV (personal anti-virus) variants. The money's decent though.
