no exe is stand alone they all use various modules (DLL's) so its very possible its spyware , do the folowing

1) scan with f-secure blacklight
http://www.europe.f-secure.com/exclu...ght/blbeta.exe

2) scan online on these sites
http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html
http://www.ewido.net/en/onlinescan/
(its best to scan in safe mode , if your internet connection can work in safe mode at least)

3) scan with microsoft antispyware/adaware/spybot
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4466.html
http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-...ml?tag=lst-0-2
http://www.download.com/Spybot-Searc...-10122137.html
update the definitions before scanning , also its better to scan in safe mode (some spywares are very persistent and cant be removed in regular mode)

4) when all done with above , get hijackthis http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip click "do a system scan and save a logfile" and open a new thread about it at http://techist.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=126 and copy & paste the log
