My dad works for the government in the health dept. researching diseases, etc. and brings his work home with him. He was researching 'something', and this executable file arrived on his desktop.
the path is as follows: C:\users\"dad's name"\appdata\local\qxfhyhoca\pqweshclanw.exe
I am no expert, but I have seen my share of viruses, etc. in my time. At the exact same time this executable file arrived, his network card froze, had a brain fart, what have you, and I had to run his recovery disk to fix it. Oddly enough, there is NO mention of it on the internet, so I'm putting it on here.
As I said, I am no expert, I'm a chef with many many hours invested in my computer, and the recovery disk option is the only one that I've had work.

The file "\Application Data\[random]\[random]lanw.exe" belongs to the Rogue "AntivirusIS"
One way is to rename that file to say "bad.exe" and restart the PC, now that the registry can't find the file to load, it doesn't load,
