    Hi again All

    Can anyone throw any light on this pop-up.....when starting TDS-3 I get an alert 'tds-3 was blocked from terminating loader.exe'.

    What is 'loader.exe'....is it good or bad?

    Regards

    Frank

    Hi Frank,

    Have you tried to boot into safe-mode and let TDS-3 do a full system scan?
    Does the same thing happen? What does TDS-3 tell you in that case?

    loader.exe is a virus which changes the victims homepage to coollllwebsearch.com and changes personalised settings on your computer

    Are we talking about this same loader.exe?

    Clean out then!

    Thanks for your replies.

    Have found out what this Loader.exe is....it is used to load the quick start tray icon for K-meleon browser.
    Looking on the K-meleon forum, most seem to disable/remove it as:
    1. K-meleon is fast enough without it.
    2. It can be buggy

    so, I gave TDS-3 permission to Nuke it....no more pop-up and icon has gone from my tray!


    Regards

    Frank

    Good determination Frank, thanks for telling. Send the file in anyway so Gavin can refine the database. Thanks!
