Setupxv.exe?
« on: May 05, 2009, 09:04:58 PM »
This was in my downloaded file but I have no idea where this came from. I at first ignored it and then tried to remove it but it wouldnt delete so I reopened it and comodo picked it up again and quarantined it. I have submitted this already but could someone tell me where it comes from, what it does and is it dangerous.

Thanks

There is a rogue registry cleaner called Registrysmart which uses a file of this name.   Does that ring any bells?
