Recently I have been having problems with my computer, when starting up for a session and logging onto my ISP, in that error boxes pop up and say that two programs have malfunctioned and will now close. I proceed, and the system continues to function, albeit not excellently. The programs in question are:o2i9a5g7a33.exe and x9r5w5s2y2x6.exeThese were found to reside in the root directory of the hard drive C:.Also, in the same place were found the following programs, the purpose of which is likewise a mystery to me:o2i9a5g7a3j3.exe, m2u8g3w9e4i1.exe, k8m1l3e9f4n7.exeThese are in the root directory, not WINNT . (Running Windows 2000, having been upgraded from Windows ME, on a micronpc.com Millennia computer.) I am just a little bit suspicios about these .exe files, having such inscrutable names and being not located with most Windows files, suggesting that they may be there for some reason that someone wants to keep secret. However, I am afraid to delete them in case they may be vital to the system.
Ensure that these files are identified by your normal virus scanning software - there are lots of spoof anti-virus scam sites out there where they claim to find problems that don't really exist. They then either get you to download their special anti-virus tool, which is more likely to be malware, or charge you for software that actually does nothing. Do not rely upon virus identification and solutions by sources you don't know and trust.
