    bfhaxh.exe
    tmotbozp.exe
    winitr32.exe
    regsrv32.exe
    serm32.exe
    winmon32.exe
    asetup32.exe

    I'm under the impression that most unfamiliar files that crop up with '32' in their title are unwelcome.

    And can anyone recommend a really good downloadable firewall (free, preferably).

    Thanks.

    The only one there that should be there is regsvr32 which is just a DLL/OCX registry tool

    Ya that too.. odds are, regarding regsvr32, it'll finish so fast you'll never see it in the taskmanager for long.

    No, it stays there. And when it's there, Task Manager shuts down the instant it opens.

    I've had trouble with lsasss, avserve2, etc. But all of a sudden these weird processes are popping up, like I have something on my computer that's randomly generating them.

    The list of new processes is now:

    bfhaxh.exe
    tmotbozp.exe
    winitr32.exe
    regsrv32.exe
    serm32.exe
    winmon32.exe
    asetup32.exe
    cwcvcw.exe
    tiujpu.exe
    wowexec.exe
    ntvdm.exe
    syscfg32.exe

    I got Process Explorer, which allows me to close them on startup. But they keep coming.

    - Run a spyware check (while not online)?
    - Consider Agnitum's Outpost firewall (free and quite effective)
