    In a company of only 15 users, we have a web filtering software that blocks certain sites from our employee access. I see that one user's PC is trying to access dl.google.com/googletalk/googletalk-setup.exe every 10 minutes even though the user isnt even at his desk.
    Does anyone know if this is some sort of virus or spyware or anything like that? I have ran a virus scan on the system and nothing was detected. Havnt yet ran a spyware scanner.

    Thanks for the info

    Do they have any other Google software installed? Maybe the Google Toolbar, Google Desktop, or Picasa is trying to download it. I don't know but I wouldn't put it past them.

    Google is reputable, but it's probably something installed on that computer.
