Hey all. I found the process "WatchDog.exe" running in my processes list.

Does anyone happen to know what it is?

I've switched it off temporarily. Sounded a bit suspicious.

There are 3 different uses for watchdog.exe, none of which are serious.

1) For Compaq PCs relating to their Internet services.

2) Part of drivers for a Mustek scanner.

3) For use in Greatis RegRun3 that checks for registry changes caused by Trojans.

I think it would be a good idea for us to check what is on your PC. Download Hijack This from here, install it and post a log for me to check over.
