    Hi, When I downloaded a Toastman file for a Linksys WRT150N.
    I get the following logo at the start of the download. Could this be
    a virus attached to the download?


    Thanks Jethroww

    It's not a virus. Your computer just associated that extension (.trx) with that image (it's probably the image logo for "trx_auto_file".) Anyways, as far as I can tell, it looks O.K.

    Hi Lucky777, Thanks for the info. Can I somehow stop that from happening
    in the future?
    Thanks Jethroww

    Hi PeterT, That is just a picture of the logo. I did click save file
    and then saved the file as XXXXXX.bin. I just was curious about
    the logo/symbol.
    Thanks Jethroww

    There is a way to remove the association but windows does not make it easy. You cannot go into the file association and just delete it. When I messed up my .apk association I needed to go into the registry and delete the entry along with running a command. I don't have the webpage saved but I'll see if I can find it.

    Edit: Here is the information:

    I needed to do both, starting with the registry entry and than step 1 and 2 from the second link. Once this is done, it will leave the file association blank and you won't see the icon there.

    Hi Riddlah, I found the actual program?


    What would be the best way to remove it?
    Thanks Jethroww

    sh is a unix shell, AKA unix command prompt. I imagine that if you don't want to use your "unux" utilities anymore then you should be able to delete the entire folder.

    Otherwise just remove the association from trx files for sh.exe.

    If you want to just remove the association to the .trx.

    1. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\ and delete .trx
    2. Open a Command Prompt with Administrator Privileges run assoc .trx=

    You may need to restart your pc for it to take effect. Once its done rebooting, the .trx extension will not be associated with the application
