All comments about knlwrap.exe:
justjake it showed up after the PC restarted on its own
Gary its marked in running processes from Microsoft Antispyware Beta 1
Spad It comes with a prefetch" KNLWRAP.EXE-090F9024" and turns legitamate programs into key-loggers. Also check to see if you have "KILL.INI" and "KILLAPPS.EXE" on your system. Until I isolated these in a file it even caused my d-link 604 to reset itself. ZA Pro stopped it all but could not identify it as spyware, nor could Spybot 1.4 beta or ewido. It's been a long 10 days trying to isolate the problem.
