    Googling around for "other.exe" indicates this file may be spyware. If this
    is the case on your machine, then possibly you've attempted to clean up
    your computer and your malware removal tools have left a reference to
    "other.exe" in Startup. If you have not cleaned up your machine, it would
    be a good idea to do so.

    To manage the Startup, either use the System Configuration Utility or
    Autoruns. Do not removed anything you don't understand. Be truthful with
    yourself about your computer skills and if you aren't sure, post back or
    take the machine to a professional.

    A. Malware removal - Go through these general malware removal steps
    systematically -
    http://www.elephantboycomputers.com/...moving_Malware

    Include scanning with David Lipman's Multi_AV and follow instructions to do
    all scans in Safe Mode. Please see the special Notes regarding using
    Multi_AV in Vista.

    http://www.elephantboycomputers.com/page2.html#Multi-AV - instructions
    http://www.pctipp.ch/downloads/siche...ning_tool.html
    - download site

    The site is in German but David's tool is in English so don't let that worry
    you. Scroll all the way down to almost the bottom of the page and you'll
    see a box titled "Infos Zum Download - Multi-AV Scanning Tool". You'll see
    "Download von www pctipp.ch" and the live link to download Multi_AV.

    You can also check to see if there are targeted removal steps for your
    malware here:

    When all else fails, run HijackThis and post your log in one of the
    specialty forums listed at the first link above (not here, please).

    Not all tools used will work in Vista and you will need to run them
    elevated. If you are unable to remove the infection by following the
    general steps, register at one of the HijackThis forums as suggested.

    B. System Configuration Utility

    Start Orb>Start Search box>msconfig [enter]

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation,
    type the password, or click Continue. Then see what is on the Startup tab.
    You don't need to restart immediately, but the next time you do you'll get
    a dialog saying you've used the Utility. Usually in Vista this will be
    blocked by Windows Defender and you'll need to allow it so you can then
    tick the box that says in effect, "don't bother me about this again".

    Important - Do not use the System Configuration Utility to stop processes.
    Instead, use Start>Run>services.msc [enter] and do not stop any services
    unless you really, really know what you're doing.

    Standard disclaimer: I can't see and test your computer myself, so these are
    just suggestions based on many years of being a professional computer tech;
    suggestions based on what you've written. You should not take my
    suggestions as a definitive diagnosis. If you can't do the work yourself
    (and there is no shame in admitting this isn't your cup of tea), take the
    machine to a professional computer repair shop (not your local equivalent
    of BigComputerStore/GeekSquad). Please be aware that not all local shops
    are skilled at removing malware and even if they are, your computer may be
    so infested that Windows will need to be clean-installed. If possible, have
    all your data backed up before you take the machine into a shop.

    Yes? And you went through the troubleshooting I already gave you in great
    detail and?

    If you didn't understand what I wrote, that's OK. We all have our areas of
    expertise. Take the machine to a local computer professional (not a
    BigComputerStore/GeekSquad type of place) and have them fix it for you.
    There is no shame in doing this; I don't hesitate to call a plumber or an
    electrician.
