Summary There is no virus by this name. However, we sometimes get queries
about "Agent007", as a program by this name is sometimes installed
by a Telia internet access package.
After installing such package, you might find a program called
AGENT007.EXE from your Windows directory and see a process called
Agent007 in your task list. You might also see a value called "Spy"
added to the Run entry of Windows registry, executing the AGENT007.EXE
program every time Windows is started.
While running, this program does not appear to do anything. However,
it might sometimes generate error messages stating:
Invalid data type for 'Completed'
Although all this appears suspicious, the program does NOT try to spy
on the user or do anything else dangerous. This has been confirmed
with the officials at Telia. There is no need to be concerned.
The purpose of Agent007 is to collect information about a possible
earlier Intenret connection and use that in the registration program
to ease the registration process.
