My nephew says he had ylelg4hees.exe on his Dell computer running WinXP and it was started as a service and with it running it used 85% resources. He ran his virus scanner and it detected and removed it. I can't fimd any info about it. ???

Sometimes you must know the name of the virus it detected, or you'll never find any info. It's probably a random filename. I don't suppose he wrote down the name before cleaning it?
Does anybody really know what time it is?

That's just the filename, not the virus name.

Like I said this is my nephews computer and he thinks that Dell and Microsoft know everything so he don't have to learn about anything. The name was all he could tell me. I did a google on it and found nothing.

Yeah, this one's pretty much dead in the water then. Without the actual virus name, you won't find any info, since that's most likely a randomly generated filename.
