still beta... comments welcome
thanx Fish, right on it.
Wow, a online AT scanner.......and they said it couldn't be done.....LOL
I get a 404 not found when trying the above link....
I just tried and I was able to get there.
Hmmm, still getting the 404 for that page but can get to the rest of the site.... Will try again a bit later and see what happens...
Huh? Veeery strange...
ok scanned like 180000 files and folders, everything was ok .. no malware found .. no error whatso ever ... doesn't feel like beta at all.
now I will scan with my other files and see what this puppy will do
I can get to the page but, no start scanner option? The activeX on ie is set to prompt.
Does the direct link work?
Yes much better
Agreed much better, I attached a pic of what happens in my previous post.
Fast scanning, found 3 threats (2 cookies, 1 exe) and removed them successfully.
The .exe was placed there by myself, just for testing purposes.
It will be possible to just scan a folder?
Works fine with Opera
I installed the Trojan Simulator to test the online scanner and ewido online didn't detect it...
I try with the ewido installed on my system and had the same result.
If the ewido guard detect this when I try to install it or when I enable the guard after install the Trojan Simulator, why the Memory Scan didn't detect the Trojan Simulator?
im now running it on the comp im using atm, ill post back in a few hours.
update: within minutes of running the scan i say numerous entries for cydoor and altnet . go figure, apparently someone was careless enough to install kazaa and they did quite a bit of downloading , but at least they tried using kazaa lite k++. ill make sure to give a talk to my cousin about his habits.
I am running the online scanner now, and so far it has found lots of spyware. About 150 or so.
Will this also remove them from my computer? Or do I have to do that myself?
Here is a company that does more action then they do talking. Most companies that call themselves AT's do more talking than action. Just a observation from a beholders point of view.
Hey that's a lot of stuff you got there. I think you should be able to remove it though. After you ran the scan what did it tell you apart from what you mentioned ? Also have you read the FAQ page on there ?
I'm very suprprised it found so much as i thought you had NOD32 AV. Maybe NOD doesn't recognise all these kinds of things !
You might like to try a2 AT as they do a Freeware version too.
Hope all goes well for you.
Well i'm lost yet again i just run this scan & i have to say wow
but i don't get why it scan all of my PC in 30 Mins & the Reg was just 1 Min
but if i install Ewido on the PC it scans all of PC in 200 + Mins
& the Registry in 190 + Mins i don't get it.
SonyaM32 - i have not tried removing the spyware that ewido found (cuz it part of kazaa) but when i clicked stop there was a button to remove infections.
IMO an excellent online scanner without any troubles.
It discovered even one high risk threat : http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/dialer.comsoft.html
The very first scanner that finally removes something from my harddisk after six months.
Where do we submit false positives?. It says part of my Pinnacle software is a Spyware hijacker.
