Item Details
Name: ScanRegistry
Filename: scanregw.exe
Description: Added by the W32/Nyxem-D WORM!
Do not confuse this with the legitimate Windows process scanregw.exe (Which is always found in the Windows folder on 9X and ME machines.) This worm file is found in the System (95/98/ME) or System32 (NT/2000/XP) folder. Read the link, drops multiple files.

This is a Startup entry, not a running process - although it may be visible in Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) if it continues running after startup. Before ending a process via CTRL+ALT+DEL just because it is listed as an "X", please check whether it's actually set to start using MSCONFIG or another tool.

Some bad startup entries use the same names as common Windows processes, and it may be difficult to distinguish between them in Task Manager. If in doubt, seek advice before doing anything.
