Note: Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk. If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection! Check it out!

where does it come from
Tyler Spyware
arthur it hijacks my brower & nothing seems to be able to remove it
Ja cant seem to remove, causes system instability and hanging
Chris Cole Very difficult to remove. Attaches its self to EXPLORE.EXE. Deleted by starting command window, terminating explore.exe, then manually deleting with command line.
Chris Cole (Additional) It seems to have been blocking installation of anti-virus software. Specifically, SOPHOS Anti-Virus would terminate prior to installation. After removal thi has properly installed and run.
Nathan if this is the thing that's screwing my system, it takes over the IE browser, launches random popups when IE is open, and replaces search engine results with its own ads. seems to only affect IE though, so get Mozilla (Firefox :D).
Owen S. I've found that KillBox works rather well at killing this file.
Very tenacious popup generator.
M.Blanco Nothing removes it so far - spybot, hijackthis, etc. Stops Norton from installing. Going to try Killbox now.
hammerdin it is the worsest thing what i can see on my pc kill it it is better 4 you!!! realy
Steve deleted the folder and then killed it with advanced uninstall
Michael Ramsay The prog ghost-installed via a pop-up. NAVC did not detect it as a malicious script. I can confirm it hi-jacks IE, and generates pop-ups. Ending the EXPLORER.EXE process and terminating the Tvm.exe file via command prompt worked, but there two .DLLs remain. Working on removal methods for them now.
Michael Ramsay To remove the reamining .DLLs, simply reboot your system after deleting the .EXE and delete them.
Crisp It is a damn exe. Remove it with the explorer method!
X-Minus That it has really Screwed up my computer
Jack launch DOS window & type : "c:\program files\TV Media\tvm.exe /u" it should uninstall it
