    Hi

    Which one are you referring to ?

    There is the legitimate one....

    C:\Program Files\Compaq Knowledge Center\bin\silent.exe

    And there is a silent.exe which is part of the malware "infamous downloader" ... this places a "silent.exe" icon on the desktop ...among others.

    There are probably others as well ... we need more info, as Basementgeek requests....

    cheers
