windows genuine advantage
It's hard to delete in windows vista home and basic edition, jou need to make yourself the trustinstaller.
Appears to contain a trogon - the real WGA should be wgalogon.dll - lots of things remask as wga.dll - even when it is legitamate, you don't need it so get rid of it anyway. Highly suspect, can be picked up as a key logger/trojan
