I've a friend who is running win2k and has had recent problems with his
floppy drive as well as the scanner drivers.  The scanner stopped
working.  He looked at the running processes and discovered something
called "Process Deneid" -- spelling correct.  He's tried to stop it but
it continues to come back.  He's pretty meticulous about keeping his AV
and spyware blockers up to date.  Both of us searched for this "process
deneid" and came up with nothing.

Does anyone here have any familiarity with this?  It would be much

Never heard of that but sounds very suspicious...

Can he find the path to the component?  Instead of looking in Task Manager, have
him get Process Explorer (free) from
<http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/procexp.shtml .  He can use that to
find the full path to the executable module.

Then submit the module to Jotti and VirusTotal for scanning.
