sdra64.exe is a virus/spyware/trojan/keylogger that hides in the system32 folder, adds it to theregistry to start when you boot the pc and make it extremely hard to remove,deletes your antivirus(which SUCKS)and stops you from reinstalling it, and makes errors on logon, boot and logout. it lets remote hackers view and control your pc and puts porn icons called 1 2 and 3 on your desktop. the only way to remove it is to download the program "Process Explorer" and search and stop all processes called sdra64.exe and lowsec, then delete sdra64.exe and run search from the start menu and delete the folder called lowsec. then get something like avg antivirus and remove all of the other viruses hope this was helpful ;)

Easy enough to remove if you have system restore operating. Restart your pc, press F8, run system restore and done!
