Zone Alarm continually tells me "wintis32.exe" is trying to access the
internet, I always deny it access.
Searching PC for this file, it is hidden and located in:
C:\Documents and Settings\Kenny Cargill\Local Settings\Temp.
I have deleted it from there but it comes back after a restart!
Have run AdAware, SpyBot, CounterSpy, AVG free and online virus scans.
The IP address it points to is:
195.92.195.94:D NS, I have tried "Whois" on that but don't really understand
it and came up with nothing.
Googling it only came up with this:
http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=wintis32.exe&hl=en
which appear to be forum posts in Spanish and I can't understand them.
Have also searched MS site, nothing there.
I am very suspicious of this, would like to know what it is and how to stop
it coming back after deletion.
Using XP Pro with SP2.
Any help appreciated.

Hi Kenny,

If it looks like a duck, and acts like a duck......

Yes, it's a nasty. Clear the temp folder completely, and also the Temporary
Internet Files. Then restart the system in Safe mode, follow the steps
outlined here: http://rickrogers.org/fixes.htm#trojan
