    Hello, all

    I'm not yet running a full blown trojan scanner.

    My anti-virus is Panda Platinum & Firewall package - Full. (9.01.02) 2005

    My Spyware scanner is the (non-freeware) version of webroot's
    spy-sweeper. Other most common ones I use are spyware blaster &
    Spybot search & destroy and sometimes Adaware.

    My email program is poco-mail

    I have XP sp2 up to date service packs and all other sec-patches.
    Running AMD-Ath 1.2Gig with 768 ram-mem.

    How easy is TDS3 for new users to get used to and how long
    does it take most people to understand it and use it properly?
    I'm no wiz at this kinda thing.

    Any problems / conflicts with any of the programs I've mentioned
    above?

    Thank You!

    Should not be any conflicts . However , easy enough to run a BASIC scan . But , set up for a full blown scan can be difficult for a newbie . And , with all of it's features , a newbie may NEVER be able to use all of the features it offers . For protection , this IS top notch . Support is excellent as well . Try it for free and see .

    Welcome to Wilders, SirBandit

    But regardless of the above, it can still be quite daunting for newbies, particularly the number of options available.

    TDS-3 may well be the best for trojan detection but you will have to wait until TDS-4 for a more user-friendly version.

    Thank You ! (Blackcat / Hollywoodpc)

    I Think I might download it and give it a try. Version 4 sounds like it will be easier for folks to use?

    Oh and back about 6 weeks ago, Spy-Sweeper picked up a file it called a key logger. I'm not sure if it really was? It picked it up in folder under Faststone Imiage Viiewer, version 1.5. This program is free for home users and not supposed to contain any adware or spyware. I forget what the file was called, but it was all zeros up to the extention. Like 00000.o_O. I wish I could remember what the extention was. Perhaps I should have changed all my passwrods, but I never did, cause I have so many programs / passwords.

    Thanks again for the help.

    SirB...

    Hi there SirBandit,
    Do also look in these important sticky threads:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=24666
    Relating to some basic setup options, which you might like to use as a guidance.
    For me it is select every option and let TDS do all startup scans and after the full system scan with all checked end of course with the lates radius update in TDS.
    Once TDSis registered updating is a clik on the menu and all goes automated, while it is possible to install the Exec protection to block every malware from executing with TDS running.

    Your questionable file, can you submit that to submit@diamondcs.com.au please for advice? (zipped if possible) thanks! Looking forward to the results!

    Hi Jooske,

    Thank you for the kind reply .. Much appreciated!

    I looked, but the file was deleted. I Thought it might still be in
    Web Sweeper's qurantine area, but no such luck. I'm wondering if a
    one was to download the program again, if it would be in it? Might
    have been a false call to I suppose?

    Since I posted this message, I got port scanned really bad one
    night and the next thing I knew my computer started to slow down.
    I didn't think to much of it at first as the computer had been running
    a long time (Over a week) without a reboot. It turned out to be a
    trojan that got into the System files. It was trj/Agent.KU and it hit
    Windows\System\CmdlineExt03.dll. The V-Scanner Panda poped up
    and informed me that it had deleted it. I did a full scan and I guess
    it did, It was not picked up after on the full scan.

    Well, thanks for the helpful link. I've read most and the stuff and I'll get
    through it all pretty soon.

    Best !

    SB ..

    Hi,

    I am now running TDS-3. I did the first scan today and I have pasted in the results below. There are 2 files that concern me the most - Webproxy & Watchdll. The other 3 are dual extentions. I'll delete those as I no longer want or need them.

    I'll stick the 2 suspect files in a folder until I know what they are for sure.

    Scan Control Dumped @ 08:16:09 04-04-05
    Live trojan found (in process memory): Reference to Known Trojan Author (Weird)
    File: C:\Program Files\Panda Software\Panda Platinum 2005 Internet Security\WebProxy.exe

    Suspicious Filename: Dual extensions
    File: c:\contain2\a-junk\mp3-2\uberview1.11c.exe

    Positive identification (DLL): Suspicious (dll) (Possible Keylog DLL)
    File: c:\program files\iolo\system mechanic 4 professional\search and recover\watchdll.dll

    Suspicious Filename: Dual extensions
    File: d:\etc-tools\firefox setup 1.0pr.exe

    Suspicious Filename: Dual extensions
    File: d:\etc-tools\shareaza_2.1.0.0.exe

    I sent the files for inspection.

    Oh and I emailed each file separately. (2 zipped files)

    All the best!
