Many virus, trojans and other malware will pick a random name to hide out in and thwart easy identification. You may find the installed Antivirus has been disabled, so your next stop is the use of HOUSECALL to see if you can identify the bug.

Be sure to post in the Security Forum since this is not a Windows 98 only issue.

In the Security Forum and in Computer Help, the DOS BASED FPROT or another such virus scanner may have to be employed to track down the real name of the bug.
