    On my machine a program popped up (actually running in the background) and I was wondering if you’ve heard of it, or know what it does?
    Does anyone have any idea what this file is.
    Thanks,
    Marie

      Are you saying the software is simply called “Tom”?
      As in Tom-Software ?

      Marie, can you tell us what the program name was? When you state that it “popped up” were you presented with something on-screen, or were you checking what was running in the Task Manager? I’m wondering if it may be related to the WINPWL.EXE trojan/worm/backdoor that you inquired about. If you can provide the name of the EXE as it appears in Task Manager or specific text that you see on screen, whatever it is that made you suspect a problem, that would be immensely helpful. At this point I’m afraid there just isn’t enough information to go on.

      If you’ve not done so, run, don’t walk, to Zone Labs’ website and download ZoneAlarm. Do this to make sure nothing is escaping your computer.
