Windows 7: NogysgN Application - What is it?

The trojan.agent.gen may be the one doing it. Surprising that that was not picked up by the other scanners!

And spyware generally comes in piggybacked on otherwise normal looking software unfortunately No need to visit neferious sites, download warez or even get "hacked". The user just needss to be "tricked" into installing a simple program

And such things /would/ happen on Linux constantly if it were enough of a target. I.e. iOS and Android have been extremely heavy malware targets over the last year or so now that the OSes are both insanely popular. Android of course is Linux.... If that popularity transfered over to the desktop, it would be just as hard hit.

Malware has become even more of a problem than just plain virii these days, the two aught to be lumped together as a single body of threats so that multiple ways of thinking about protection do not need to be made.

Yeah, I was surprised it wasn't picked up by Avast (I put too much trust in you, Avast ).

Yeah, it's funny to me that most people writing viruses and malware probably use Linux desktops - and I think the way most Linux and derivative OS's for desktop are set up now - users would be severely unprepared if people started hitting Linux.

Avoiding '<application name> is not a valid Win32 application' error.
OK, this is admittedly a strange one... I have used an old (probably a 16-bit) application as my time synchronizer this I've used for quite some time. Its name is TimeRC, and is a great synchronizer as it tracks moon phases along with the time (from selectable, multiple potential time servers)....

I disabled application info and application update in services.msc
And now I am so screwed. I can't even open services.msc, I can't install an update, I can't run updates and I can't re enable anything because I can't get into services to do it. Please don't say system restore because I disabled it. If you say get a mac, then yes, I agree!:D
