Has anyone ever found a dialer called UKVideo on their computer?

Name:
UKVideo

Author:
Unknown

Category:
System Monitor

Threat Assessment:
High

Description:

UKVideo is a keystroke monitoring program that records all keyboard activity.

Characteristics:

UKVideo records all keystrokes typed, including passwords. The program runs in the background, so it is invisible to the user. The collected information is stored into a log file for later retrieval.

Method of Infection:

This program can be installed by someone with administrative access to your computer. UKVideo can also install itself the way many trojans do, by disguising itself as a harmless program and distributing as an email attachment. Once you open the email attachment, UKVideo installs itself onto your computer without your knowledge.



I have used SpyBot, Pest Control, and SpySweeper and can't seem to get rid of it.
Any suggestions?
Thanks,
KenMac

There's a little tool called What's Happening that I learned of in a pc plus mag a few months back...

It tells you what dlls are running and where they are located in your computer. Using that, and google, you should be able to figure out what is running that should be and what is running that should not be so that you can delete it or rename it or something.
