    EUESU folder with lots of small files. Was in my 'startup'

    Hi All,

    I noticed today a strange entry in my startup list. I often check to see what is there just incase there is something I don't need starting up with the system and can disable.

    Today I noticed an entry called "Start.vbs" in a folder called "EUESU" in my Users directory [C:\Users\myconputername\ ]. I saw this via CCleaner - Tools - Startup tab and under the published column it is BLANK.

    I have googled this and have come up with nothing.

    This is starting to look suspicious to me.

    Does anyone have this folder in their Windows 8 Users directory ??

    Start.vbs is a visualbasic script file. try opening it in notepad to see if there is any hints to what it could be.
    Scan it with a virus program.
    It might be a leftover from a program you installed or tried to then aborted.

    Yeah the vbs extention looks familar but everything else looked suss.

    I have run over it with my vurus scanner, malwarebytes and Superantispyware.. all came up clean

    But I am suss on the folder name and the fact there is no "Publisher" id ?

    Just to add.. i have scanned with 'Jotti Onlince scanner' the 'start.vbs' file as well as another file that was also in this EUESU folder, which was an executable named OBPYD.exe and both came up 100% clean
