Maybe I have a "rootkit": and not a virus. Despite all my best efforts, I can't seem to get rid of this thing that creates a six digit EXE in c:\windows\temp. Wikipedia actually says that if you have one, the best thing to do is to reinstall since a rootkit modifies so much stuff. Wow, this stuff is terrible. There is a free checker called "blacklight":, but the problem is that to really work, you need to boot from a CD and not run the operating system itself.
