    Multiple Instances of idflroj.exe Running


      My computer recently slowed down and upon examination of running processes with procexp.exe (from Sysinternals) I noticed about a dozen instances of a program named idflroj.exe. It looked like a legitimate Google application, but obviously was not. 

      I then used autoruns.exe (also from Sysinternals) to examine my autorun entries. I noticed an odd entry under HKEY_Current_Users\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run named mmyunxse.dll, dated 12/31/1969 6:00 PM. 

      I went into Safe Mode and removed the above entry with autoruns.exe, the dll it pointed to (C:\Users\Jim\AppData\Local\AdobeSetupUtility\mmyunxse.dll), and the directories containing idflroj.exe and its associated files (C:\Users\Jim\AppData\LocalLow\AppleComputer\ aqfqkmkk and mrigoqiori). 

      On restart the problem seems to have been fixed, but time will tell.


      Has anyone else run into this problem and, if so, what did you do? 

      Should McAfee have seen this problem (malware?) on a scan? 

      What was this malware doing besides slowing down my computer?
