    PC running applications, anyone know this one

    Hi

    Cannot seem to figure out what
    qikyg.exe is, using 28,000

    The fact that google brings up no results would worry me. Have you run a full antivirus scan recently? I would also get Malwarebytes and run a full scan with that. If it's still there after, try disabling it in msconfig and see what happens.

    Hopefully.

    Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware are the way to go though IMO

    Ran Adaware and it located cookie stuff but not the qikyg.exe

    As chipsticks suggested tried malwarebytes and it found and stopped it.

    the mbam.exe file though is using 30,000 memory, but at least its a good memory user.

    Thanks all for your help

    don't rely too much on prevx definitions, pick any windows dll to google and it will come up with a virus think its more scare tactics tbh
