    Yesterday I was trying to figure out why TDS3 doesn't show up any longer in a Hijack this scan or in the asviewer scan, when things started going crazy. I noticed my PG log was empty and I no longer had any checksums. Norton firewall wouldn't load. So I did a system restore. It seemed that everything was fine. But then my screen saver wouldn't come on. I checked Task Manager and the screen saver was trying to run even though it wasn't supposed to. So I went into control panel and selected a different screen saver and everything is ok. It was hung up I guess. Today my wife put it back in and it is running fine. I don't know what happened to PG but it is fine now. :rolleyes:

    Hi William, If you are sure about the screensaver you can add it to the protection list as some malware can target it.

    Here is my PG entry as an example :)

    Long Path :- c:\winnt\system32\scrnsave.scr
    Short Path :- c:\winnt\system32\scrnsave.scr
    Blocked Flags :- Write,Terminate,Suspend,SetInfo
    Allow Flags :- None
    Option Flags :- None

    HTH Pilli.

    Thank you Pilli. I don't think any malware got to it .I think it just got hung up somehow and couldn't shut off or come back on.
