| This file keeps changing the EXE process to try and fool ZoneAlarm. You need to delete the bi.ini, belt.ini and belt.exe from the c:\windows directory. |

| It has not done any visible damage to my computer and apparently i have had it for a while. I don think it is a trojan/virus. Spyware seems to be fitting. If you cant stop the process to delete the file; click run, msconfig, then click the statup tab and uncheck the box marked Belt.exe. If you are still having problems boot into safe mode and run adaware. Redeyedsoldier|

| spyware - works in conjunction with Nail.exe. Runs silently in the explorer shell. Difficult to remove on standalone machine. You could try opening a command window, then kill the Explorer shell. Then try and delete the Nail.exe or Belt.exe from C:\Windows. Open regedit too and search for the .exe's and remove any entries. Nail.exe amends HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell. The key should read Explorer.exe - but it amends it to Explorer.exe C:\Windows\Nail.exe - Remove the c:\windows\nail.exe bit and reboot snake|
