Wfwall1.exe??

By wizardofJ ·
has anyone heard of this one? When I right click on the file, it comes up with Windows Firewall Coordinator, put out by Microsoft Corp., but can't find anything about it on MS website. It's in the task manager about 20 times, XP original version, acts like a virus, and may be linked to Elite Toolbar (that dratted pervasive rotten stuff).
any hints or help would be greatly appreciated

Hi,

The only thing I could find on this file is this

Also you want to run a full virus scan, spyware and ad-ware scan and also run hijack this.

Also use msconfig from the run command to remove all traces of Wfwall1.exe from the startup processes.
