Has anybody run across a virus,bug,malware thing called PING.exe that
seems to take over a box by going up and down in size ?

I have a client pc that just begins to crawl after this "ping.exe" takes off.

You can end it and it reappears after a few minutes.

I have tried most of the popular anti-virus pc programs to remove it
with little success.

What ever it is got by a Sonicwall and a virus checker on the pc.

Any ideas before I have do a very long reload procedure on this
machine ?

There seems to be some relationship with this bug and a browser.(Firefox)

I can't tell you how much I hate these folks that do this for fun.
