Hello all -
Running Windows XP Media Center 2002 service pack 2.
I recently cleaned a lot of bad stuff off the system,
but a vexing issue remains including occasional browser redirects (unable to access, even mwb itself cannot update eg), and more frequent lockups than usual, and occasional random appearances of rundll in task mgr.
I think I have isolated the culprit to something named "YIIFLK" in the registry
it appears in several places, most notably as a BOOT EXTENDER.
google search on it turns up NOTHING.
i tried prevx 3.0, an updated malware bytes, tddskiller, and GMER - everything scans CLEAN.
so my question is this:
does anyone know exactly what YIIFLK Is?
I should also note that i have 2 separate hard drives on the machine
and i have each one set as a boot option - so i press F12 on boot screen and get a choice of which drive to boot from (both XP Media 2002).
Only the IDE drive (C) has this problem.
THe SATA drive is clean and running well.
I thought perhaps the boot extender has to do with my having set up the 2 boot drives. Would really like some guidance from a wizard or two out there. Thank you very much.
