Strange File - yc3oiswnv.exe showing up on start up

By rwtodd2007 ·
Customer has the above file name showing up on startup, saying it cant start and to tell M$ about the problem. Ive dug through quite a few web searches, and find nothing about this file.

Im lead to believe its remnants of spyware/virus that was removed from his system, and he currently has turned this off in startup in msconfig.

Anyone run across this one?

Follow the steps here

And then search for yc3oiswnv.exe in the registry and remove it wherever you find it. Then download and run HijackThis (also available at that link) and post the log in this thread for a final check.
