Windows Explorer / [filename].exe

File Name: [filename].exe
Status: Windows Explorer should not be running at startup. It is likely a virus, spyware, trojan, or some other sort of malicious program. Use a virus scanner, and/or spyware removal tool to remove it.
Additional Info: Added by the SDBOT TROJAN! Note - this is not the legitimate Windows Explorer (explorer.exe) which would not normally appear in Msconfig/Startup unless you added it manually!
