I have just done a search of my c: drive and I do not have that file on my PC. Have you done a search for it?
I found a couple of references to it online, it appears to be a command used by Perl scripts and some Oracle applications to [b]add a virtual host.
I would say if in doubt don't let it through your firewall.[/b]

Download either Spybot-Search and destroy or Lavasofts Adaware 6, they are both free and will get rid of any spy software, if these don't work then goto Start/Run and typ msconfig.exe and have a look at what is starting up on your computer. Try disabling it in here and if you computer suffers no ill effects then job done.
My Zone Alarm tells me that a program called addvh.exe wants access to the internet. I can't find any reference on their database or Google.. anyone know what this is?
Originally posted by eyeqpcI've disabled it.... let's see what happens. Can I delete the exe file itself then?

Originally posted by RhymesterI can't see any reason why you can't delete it. You could just rename it to addvh.old just in case it turns out you need it. But I'm sure Eyeqpc is correct, running something like Adaware would probably delete it anyway.
