strange exe trying to connect

So, I was on my husband's computer because mine had just burned it's chip. And the firewall popped up a friendly little message letting me know that sawtm.exe was trying to connect to It's located in c:win/sys/.

He likes to visit pr0n sites that feature latinas, so I am guessing that this is the online equivalent of an STD.

I've googled it and can't really find any mention of it outside of one person's HijackThis log file. Can anyone help me figure out what this is and the best way to get rid of it?

Thank God I don't have to share a computer with him.

Thanks much in advance!

You can always just delete the exe file that shouldn't hurt anything.

I did find something on the sawtm.exe.

It does seem to be a compormise of the computer by a malware program.

If you get access denied on the deletion, you may have to go into Safemode to delete it.

Try to delete it or rename it and get it out of the way.
