It attempts to open multiple tcp/ip connections. XP service pack 2 closes any further connections and so the browser becomes inoperative. See microsoft ID 4226 for more info. rayrose.net
It slows PC down, It makes programs NOT RESPOND, it opens stuff without me clicking on it. I hate it.  See also: Link Jessey

Causes internet explorer to hang. If you are lazy to delete the file, you can always end the process. This will stop it from working.
It scans for other pc's to be exploited, hence the loss of performance on your network, Can be used for Ddos Attacks, Is not really a viri merlly just a app made in C++ that runs hidden in the background utilizing your net. Allows user to add ftpd, socks4, httpd and remote connect on victim pc. Can add other bits of software that runs in the background. but Most of the rxbot.exe's out there have been so leaked and tampered with they dont work. Yeah You dont need this. ANNOY
