    hi

    i used the anti root kit scanner v1.07.0.1008 on my windows xp pro system and noticed a curious thing.

    quite some time ago i purchased some dvds that were from another region and found they would not play on my dvd player. so i used a ripper to convert to ntsc and burned them and that was successful.

    the curious thing is that using anti root kit (scan occasionally) i saw listings of those file names of the dvds but the info on where they were located was so fast i could not see where on my system they were being scanned.

    a search for those named files and found nothing.

    i know this is pretty odd, but i was curious why deleted (removed the temp program docs&settings stuff) but was wondering where anti root kit was scanning them still on system somewhere.

    is there some way to see a complete text listing of everything scanned. the scan text files show little?

    thanks for any input.

    thanks but i discovered the problem.

    the temp folder contents were deleted but the folders remained. that is why the file names scanned.

    thanks

    Hi, & welcome to Wilders.

    Glad you discovered the problem. Was it GMER you used ?

    used malwarebytes and kaspersky

    kaspersky did not list anything (empty folders but malwarebytes did...had to search in temp folder visually to find them.
