User showed me this clock on the screen today - its modal but fixed on top. Anti-virus revealed nothing - and no shifty programs or services to my eye are running. alt text

Hopefully AV deep scan will reveal something?

Did you figure out what it was? –  Default Sep 21 '10 at 10:24
    
Is it static or dynamic? i.e. does it indicate the true time, or is it stuck on 10:39? –  Devdatta Tengshe Sep 21 '10 at 10:58
    
would be nice to know what this was. –  Diskilla Sep 21 '10 at 12:19
    
@Michael - yes it was malware posing as a JPG in the sysroot32 folder. –  Klaptrap Sep 23 '10 at 6:05
    
@dev - dynamic clock –  Klaptrap Sep 23 '10 at 6:05

Download Process Explorer from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx

& then use the 'Find Window's Process' Tool to find what process is running it. You can then google for the process to find if it might be a virus or a prank.
