  1. Hmm, so what is recommended temporary AS solution for Vista x64 ?
  2. Hm, but this is a security leak. What if I am a spy, trying to realize what is on your to do list ? joking
  3. It could be useful to have on the background scanning to avoid disturbing user work or time critical processes.
  4. In fact, there 2 detected files, main exe hwinfo, and one of its several helper utilities. Scanned again with latest update: SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log https://www.superantispyware.com Generated 04/15/2008 at 07:09 PM Application Version : 4.0.1154 Core Rules Database Version : 3438 Trace Rules Database Version: 1430 Scan type : Quick Scan Total Scan Time : 00:00:01 Memory items scanned : 0 Memory threats detected : 0 Registry items scanned : 0 Registry threats detected : 0 File items scanned : 16 File threats detected : 2 Trojan.Fake-Drop/Gen S:\ARCHIVY\CDRW\HWINFO\HWINFO.EXE S:\ARCHIVY\CDRW\HWINFO\UTILS\GETSMBUS.EXE I will send both detected files to mentioned address. BTW, here is webpage with current hwinfo version, mine are quite obsolete: http://www.hwinfo.com/
  5. Yes, I did it after clicking a menu after detection. After next update it seems it still detect it. I will check it through UVNC...... still detect it after fresh update.....
  6. In my archive I have HWINFO - in its time very good DOS based HW inventory tool, years old. It is from quite well known author, making this tool for windows later. Recent update marked it as Trojan.Fake-Drop/Gen. I suppose it is false positive. Well, there was in legend that some other AS are marking innocent apps as malware to show "they works". So it could be "true positive" about the other AS tools if they are used and marked it as malware.
  7. Hi, I often use sysinternals autoruns utility to monitor startup items. Recently I have discovered SASENUM driver is not verified to be signed properly. The other 2 driver signs are verified. If none of them is, I would understand it. Many vendors do not do it, even if it is desired for security software. But if some are, and some not, it can be suspicious. So I ask, is it normal or not ?
  8. well, even if it finds nothing but 1 cookies, that I mark than as trusted, SAS makes its favorite cleaning procedure....
  9. Well, my note was aimed toward SAS software, not to you personally
  10. I will try, anyway, the original poster noticed the difference within admin account , having DDA ON/OFF, thats why have asked.
  11. Does it mean, that with DDA it scans less files, or without DDA scans some more times ? Or just count more times ?
  12. Maybe not to claim the need of reboot so alarming. Tracking cookies are not so much harmful, having them do not stand for cumputer is infected. BTW I have cookies at my admin account too, it is probably the reason of my previously reported reboot request.
  13. Who knows why they were in-use, something had them locked. Not all cookies are in-use. The message you saw was us deleting them. if only cookies are to be removed, than prior closing browsers or logging off/on could be enough to perform removal. Reboot can be unwanted if system service continuity is demanded.
  14. Word fighting is far from my primary goal, in spite of my quite significant humour sense. Keeping our admin fighting, he can miss a dangerous malware
  15. It is not a big surprice for me, because SAS looks well designed Reboot was needed just once, no relation to waiting time.
