Red alert updating windows live
Adaware SE1.06 had free add-ons to block both Messenger & OE backdoor but they claim aren't needed/won't work on new AAW 2007 as those blocking functions are included in the program itself now. I apparently got it while searching for car parts, and opened a page (and subsequent pages) that was a listing of search engines, each performing the search that I had put into Google.
Unfortunately since the trojan has already landed and downloads more, I still suspect removal will be required. I too have just picked up the fake Windows Security Alert popup that says, "Your computer is making unauthorized copies of your system and internet files. I ran Adaware, which removed 31 cookies and a bunch of misdirected files or something.
And about every 10 minutes I get a Symantec Antivirus popup (a real one) that states it found a Downloader threat. Kees Well, I think I've gotten rid of the spyware/virus - whatever it/they was/were.
It says the file is C:\WINDOWS\It further says that Clean failed, that Quarantine failed, but that "Delete succeeded: Access denied" It seems puzzling that this keeps popping up, as though it continues to delete the same file. It deleted my Adaware program, locked me out of my control program, and "deleted" all of my documents.
