There is a friend of mine who's running Windows XP. After she installed Dreamweaver CS6, everytime the OS starts, Dreamweaver opens automatically and shows this js file:

Do you have any idea of what this could be?

I know it's not exactly a programming question, but since my familiarity with JavaScript is limited, I find no other way of knowing what this is.

Any thoughts would be very appreciated!

  • A lot of these bizarre javascripts contain their own decoder, and decode to a link to advertising. Usually an advertisement for a ripoff, hosted illegally on someone's forgotten, insecure website that was cracked into.– PaulJun 6 '14 at 2:12

It's spyware, best get a Spyware scanner and run that. It's not Dreamweaver, but because the default file to open Javascripts would've been changed to Dreamweaver - so on start up it would open up Dreamweaver to edit the JS file
