I watched my "Opened Connections" window as this OFFICEGUI32.EXE program opened like a trillion ports in sequence. Eventually I was no longer able to communicate on the internet at all. No NNTP, no POP3, no HTTP. It's very bizarre. This is a fresh install of Windows XP Home with the SP2 update which I downloaded right after installation, and it was done on a clean formatted partition. I've only installed the programs I've always installed which were stored in a directory I use for archiving installation EXE's, and I scanned each one with the latest virus scan databases before using them. I find it highly unlikely that I've already been infected by a virus so soon after installing Windows. I can confidently say that I haven't been infected by a virus in ages because I just don't run any old thing that comes through my e-mail, nor have I run anything in this install.
I can't find any information on this OFFICEGUI.EXE program. Has anyone here heard of it? I have now denied this program all connection activity and so far things seem to be going well.
