Fake Firefox process running at startup?
Lately I've noticed firefox running at system startup.
It looks like this in task manager when I open the (real?) firefox:
firefox.exe (10k something) (startup)
firefox.exe (116k) (the actual browser)
I've checked msconfig and there's no firefox on the startup list.
I've run multiple virus and malware programs and they don't seem to find anything.
Any tips about this is appreciated.
I can end the process but it will always return if I log off or reboot.
