On the other desktop (XP pentium 4) the files are named: 74HJGB1.A02 C:\Program Files\DL cats -- on this pc only had time to download MS tuesday updates, Adobe flash, java, whatever was needed. Had no time to open anyother websites for 2 months....If I send 74HJGB1.A02 to notepad here's whats inside:
nsid=1025,cid=4
NumberOfTopics=80
[SWInfo] NumberOfKeys=1
PrinterUSBId=74HJGB1
[SWInfo/Install] NumberOfKeys=3
DateFirstInstall=1251079944
DateLastInstall=1251079944
NumInstalls=1
[CATSControlData] NumberOfKeys=2
DateLastArchiveSnapShot=1287682735
CurrArchiveSnapShot=86
[ColorCartData] NumberOfKeys=5
CCartType=New

[ColorCartData1] NumberOfKeys=5
CCartType=Used

Even though it says Printer? Removing it from 2 pc's has no problems/effects on the printer ? ?>!

Other sites, looking thru google, are doing combofix's, DDS, HiJackThis, -- all scans are clean?
thanks for the reply, be back later.... another mystry NOTme

Willing to bet Lexmark software needs it for some function of some type.

Did you check Lexmark FAQs?

just as I checked the email, this came in....from Ray in Phoenix <?>

quote: My search at Google was ambiguous also. I decided to check the Lexmark site and used their search engine. The following link is the result of the search for DL_cats:
http://www1.lexmark.com/products/search ... id=3598235

I really suspect that it's an unnecessary phone home utility that Lexmark has put into service, but you would have to determine that by decompiling the software to be sure. Any comment?

Ray

will cya later Tom !!!! c=c

Yep, that may be true, just gotta find out what's spawning it and block it.

Run SystemLook for a search:
Please download SystemLook from one of the links below and save it to your Desktop.
http://jpshortstuff.247fixes.com/SystemLook.exe
http://images.malwareremoval.com/jpshor ... emLook.exe

Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
Copy the info below and paste it into the main text field:
:filefind
dl_cats

Click the Look button to start the scan.
When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan.

Then paste it back into your next reply
