don't knwo what is is doing but it opens file handles by the 10's of thousands, a resource hog and ... why the hell does it need to do this? I't can't possibly be benign
I don't know where I got "newsflash.exe" but I don't remember installing it. It wants to run at startup and deposits an icon in the task bar. I uninstalled this "program" once, however it still seems to be hiding in C:\Program Files\Common Files...\Newsflash.exe
