Managerrefdent

Recommended Posts

Just recently I have had a file named 'Managerrefdent.exe' attempt to phone home to Microsoft after failing to load. The file only surfaces when using FS and has a date stamp of 13/10/05 (10/13/05 for some). Does anyone have any idea what it is about and if it is something to worry about?It resides in the c:Documents and SettingsandyApplication DataAdmin for' folderThanksAndy b

AndyI searched my HD for that file name & got no results ( yes I included hidden files & folders). Maybe it's from an addon you recently installed but it doesn't appear to be a native file of flight sim or Windows.Jim

Andy,That sounds suspiciously like a rogue dialler - basically spyware which attempts to dial a number for which you will get charged (ludicrous amounts probably).I would suggest looking at http://www.firewallguide.com under the spyware section and find a freeware spyware remover such as ad-aware or similar to see if it removes it.Jonathan

The folder it is in has some strange executable files where the name are a series of letters that mean nothing.A GOOGLE search delivers no leads at all. I'm gonna move the file to a floppy and re-boot to see what happens. Fortunately if it is a dialler it won't get very far with a cable connection and no link to the phone system.Thanks for your comments.
