Advice please "Unclassified Unknown Origin"

Recommended Posts

Hi there,i hope someone can put my mind at ease.

About an hour ago i updated my free SAS,iam currently using version 4.23.0.1006.

Before running a full scan i scanned with :

AVG 8.0

Spybot S+D

Adware

Avast

All were updated and found no problems ( I only use Z/Alarm and AVG ) when i decided to try the other program's

Yet i have found Unclassified Unknown Origin :

HKU\S-1-5-21-861567501-220523388-682003330-1003\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current\Version\Ext\Stats\(insert random numbers and letters)

What is this ? It has no Trojan.exe in the line that i can see.

Description : Randomly named browser helper objects. Contains no version or company information and is installed in the Windows\System folder. Im doing all my business and banking on this pc now and others do have access to it in the workplace at times.

Should i be worried,is it a keylogger for example ?

All help is greatly appreciated,excuse the long post, im not too clever with forums or things im not sure of

Thanks

Hi again,well once it finished i ran quarantine and delete and rescanned and there is no evidence of it now. Really would appreciate if someone could explain what it was. I have never had more than tracking cookies as an issue in the past so this was a first for me. Would it have anything to do with Java ? I remember last week i was asked for some reason to install it and it seemed to change registery keys etc

Thanks in advance
