PnkBstrB.exe
« on: February 01, 2009, 02:18:19 AM »
Hi, avast home thinks C:\Windows\system32\PnkBstrB.exe (hidden services) is a Suspicious File.
Glad I know what this file is and did not select Delete now.
I have been running this file and avast for ages, so why all of a sudden is this file suspicious ?
Please advise.
Thanks.

To be sure, you can zip the file in a password protected archive and e-mail it to: virus@avast.com
You can also run the file through an online virus scanner like VirusTotal and see they say...
