    Default 331BigDog...should I be worried?

    My boss has a new Fujitsu Lifebook A Series notebook. When I loaded Spybot and checked the System Startup the first item listed is 331BigDog with Command Line of C:\Windows\VM331_STI.EXE. When I Google the value 331BigDog I don't receive very many references, but the few I do mention malware/spyware/backdoor trojan.

    Is this a cause for alarm or is it non-malicious?

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    skoobie, I can't tell if this process is malicious or not:

    Is the term "Vimicro" associated with your machine in anyway?

    Hey drragostea...thanks for the reply. I am not sure on that. I left a message for my boss regarding that. I do see a VC0331 USB2.0 Digital Camera in the Add/Remove Programs and when I Google VIMICRO it takes me to a website regarding security cameras. I know that isn't the security we have here at work but it could be from his home.

    Will repost when I hear back from him.

    Thanks

    Thumbs up How about Virus Total (Ironic Name!)

    Hi skoobie,

    You could try uploading the file C:\Windows\VM331_STI.EXE to Virus Total to help confirm the file's legitimacy

    Default VM331_STI.exe

    This program is associated with the webcam built into the top of the screen on the Fujitsu T1010 tablet, vimicro is the camera vendor.

    Exactly. I quick search at systemlookup confirms that this file is "good".
