Default Help with a file... Possible virus

My computer recently started booting slowly. In looking at my task manager, I was looking up items not associated with the system.

When I searched tcsd_win32.exe, I found some data that this is safe, but may also "hide" a virus. I ran a C-Drive scan for this file and it came back with two files.

One is the program running in it's proper place. The other is in C:\\WINDOWS\Prefetch. Looking at properties of this file, it was created on on Novenber 23rd and was last modified this morning (I suppose after startup).

Well, what do you think? Is this "prefetch" file hiding in my C:\\WINDOWS\Prefetch a virus?

Can I delete this recently developed file?

Default Re: Help with a file... Possible virus

Hi,

I am curious is this a .dll file or is it another file. If it is a .dll file then it is a web accelerator for the company Onspeed. If you have other questions you can always to to SystemLookup.com it will help you with a lot of those programs.

Cheers!
