Ha d excellent results for past 3 wks. Yesterday, I did a synch of my BB Curve. Last night somebody got control of my computer. Various windows opened, one of them Blackberry. Zone Alarm A/V scans find nothing. I did a search of exe files run yesterday and one of them was the 460_B015_ENGLISH.EXE file. I don't know if that is sig or not, but when I Googled is below. I would appreciate any feedback.

Re: Malware Concern with 460_B015_ENGLISH.EXE

I don't know where you download your Desktop Manager from, but I would highly advise downloading it ONLY from the RIM downloads...

Download Desktop Manager from here:

You can rest assured this ^^ will not be infected or full of malware or whatever you suspect.

 

Then, you can ignore any of your fears of any problems from it. Do a clean uninstall of the current version if you are convinced there is a poltergeist.
