    Laptop w/xp pro has slowed quite a bit (dial up)!

    Have 9 things quarantined in Bit Def. .... have run scan....sent report!

    Ran Panda o/l scan.....nothing

    Ran Adaware, Spybot, A-sq, CC Cleaner, CWS and have SWBlaster/SG.

    Couple of days ago while looking for appropriate .gifs for the 10f degenerates at one site I got a popup from Bit Def that it had detected a virus.

    Not sure of procedure to follow.

    Hi Bucky,

    I have no clue!

    The 9 file names in Bit Def quarantine are "Trojan.Holax.A...", "JS.Trojan.Downloade...", and 7 not named.

    The 9 files are suspect w/"Exploit.Html.Codebas...", 5/w "Exploit.Win32.MS05-0...", and"JS.Trojan.Downlode..."

    I sent a report to Bit Def a couple of days ago.

    Cheers, ed

    ...3 hrs later....Found and quarantined "Exploit.Html.MhtRedirect.Gen" in "ed's/temp files". Am I confused?...naaah!

    Step 9 of the Gen Instr for VX2 Cleaner. ....Note: Choose correct ver. for your Windows Operating Sys. I didn't get that option!!
     
  6. Ed,

    Just downloaded both files from PcHell.
    Win 9x list's version 1.0.0.28, XP and other's I presume show version 1.0.0.23.

    Muahaha! I'm glad you cleared that up! I got version 2.1.0 from Lavasoft.

    Now I'm really scared!

    big ed
     
  8. Sorry for any confusion .... didn't know you have the one from Lavasoft, my downloads > Option^Explicit. Major Geek's list's a version 2.0 (though couldn't download), Platform > Win All. I'll assume any version beyond 2.0 from them is All win compatible. Anyone care to confirm?

    GF
     
  9. Ed,

    Step 9 from the General thread link's to PcHell (option^explicits) where there's a choice for OS. Confused? :D
    The *option* BS references doesn't matter where the new version from Lavasoft is concerned.


    GF
     
  10. Also grabbed the one from Lava ... ver 2.1.0.0 confirmed! ;)

  16. No safe-mode? Then make sure you close all running app's prior to a system scan, offline.

    That figures! You'll just have to run it in normal mode as GF said....

  18. You could try TrendMicro's Sysclean Package (google) which runs in safemode .... I believe Norton and Sophos offer a similar setup. BitDefender does offer a console scanner but I'm not certain if it's safe-mode compliant ....

  19. Follow directions carefully, disable BitDefender offline and prior to booting safe mode ....

    Well...you know that this routine was assembled by Mr. Blacksmerg and I was informed that he failed "round hole...square peg" in Nursery School. Thats why, after 20 yrs he was able to advance to Wilders 'Mailroom'.

    It's kinda like searching for a needle in a fresh pile of manure!

    What are you doing here!! Don't you have some tree limbs to gather or something! Remember...when you see a bunch of animals gathered at the water ... always drink upstream!
