    Hmmm... Ujjwal .. Congrates .. You got no known parasite or spyware... Btw .. This file looks suspicous to me too .. Disable it from startup through MsConfig or HijackThis ...

    To proceed with your HijackThis log, Run HijackThis again and put a CheckMark next to these entries and Click on Fix Checked.
    Please make sure that all Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer windows are closed.
    and btw
    Yes Alib_i .. If you know me then probably you'll know that I have to deal with this stuff daily and I have to post this message many times a day ... So I copied it to Simple collector ..Not only this , the Response to a log (see above) and many more ...

    Hey Ujjwal ... The file you sent me was detected as Trojan.Win32.Zapchast by Kaspersky and deleted :( .. So .. Better scan your system ...

    Scan your system with updated virus definitions:
    Panda ActiveScan
    Stinger
    Symantec System Check
    Kaspersky

    Btw ... I didnt found out more about this virus on the net ..Its just a Trojan .. You can simply delete it and live happily ever after ...
