Hi,
The folder C:\Windows\Help\Help\Services.exe mysteriously showed up and loads
at startup. I read this is useless and serves no purpose, put there by a worm.
(not to be confused with the Windows Services.exe in the Windows\System 32
folder)
I used regedit and went to:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
SystemBoot REG_SZ
C:\Windows\Help\Help\Services.exe

I tried removinging it from the registry, but it comes back!!!
Thanks for your help.
