    NOD32 Anti Virus

    Started my PC this morning & found these icons on desktop.
    Did a system restore & the Icons are sort of blanked out.
    How do i clean this out ?

    I just did a complete scan with NOD32 & it didnt find anything.
    The Icons where not there untill i started the PC this morning.
    The Icons where colored untill i did a system restore.
    The names on the Icons are.
    Error Cleaner
    Privacy Protector
    Spyware & Malware Protector

    Hello,
    You seems to be infected due to a rogue... Today, numbers of such infections are more and more frequents... And too few antivirus are able to detect that kind of spyware...

    Regards

    Reason is that creators pre-pack it.

    Yes surely. That means that antivirus developers should think about a new triggering point, in real time analysis, which is the moment when the program is unpacking before being really ready to start...

    So you mean that NOD32 should be able to detect spywares as Smithfraud or Vundo, if advance heuristic is activated ?

    That should be interesting to verify...

    well it should be able to detect unknown malware using advanced heuristics if it has characteristics of known vundo and smitfraud
    just remember nothing is 100percent and the the increasing number of malware is making that even harder.
