I run Perl Training Australia [perltraining.com.au].

I help with Melbourne Perl Mongers.

I spend an awful lot of time talking about Perl, and have had my picture in the Australian newspapers with a camel. That's rather scary.

Spyware scare

[ #23414 ]

Spyware scare
Aside from all the regular tools that get run to protect Windows machines from malicious code, I also like to do a visual inspection of what processes are running.

Last night I had something of a fright when I found a process called PRONoMgr.exe running. I thought that had to be something dodgy, and I was expecting an unhappy evening of machine sanitisation.

Turns out, the PRONoMgr.exe is the Intel PRO Network object Manger. Despite sounding like something that would redirect your browser to an unsavoury destination, it actually looks after the wireless network card. Thanks, Intel.
