Default internet question

well before i formatted my computer i had deleted a file called rlvknlg.exe and my computer ran fine. but now after i re-fromatted it the internet lags beyond belief. i want to delete it because it takes a lot of mem usage to run it, like 70,000K and i do think it has something to do with my internet cutting in and out recently.

i deleted it in the first place because accorind to this site and many others it is reconized as spyware/trojan (http://www.what-is-exe.com/filenames/rlvknlg-exe.html) which i don't really understand because it obviously came with the computer.

so could anyone tell me what this process really is? tanki

And you say that it was still there even after a format? I would run virus/spyware scans and see if they can fix it up

when i run the scans it doesn't come up as a virus and this is with AVG and Nod32. and yes to format my computer i need a disk that eMachines have me so i'm thinking that it's the disk that is uploading this on my computer.

I would drop Emachines an email and see if they know about the file, and if they do how can you avoid it...and also give em a bit of anger if they do have spyware on their discs
