  1. I have just scanned my system with Comodo, MalwareBytes and SAS.

    Comodo and MalwareBytes gave a clean bill of health.

    SAS reported

    Adware.AddLyrics/Variant
        C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\DEXPOT\UNINSTALL.EXE
        C:\USERS\......\APPDATA\ROAMING\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\START MENU\PROGRAMS\DEXPOT\DEXPOT UNINSTALL.LNK
        C:\PROGRAM FILES\WINPCAP\UNINSTALL.EXE
        C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\FREEMAKE\CAPTURELIB\WINPCAP.EXE

     

    I submitted these files to virustotal and both were clean. According to virustotal whese files were tested with SAS and found clean.

     

    I use SAS v6.0.1130.  After the scan the 'built-in false positive reporter at the end of the scan' was not shown. Is this still available in this version?

    I have not found anything in SAS that mentions this.

     


  2. What numeric version of SAS are you running?

    4.41.0.1000

    I managed to get SAS to run in safe mode and it told me that I had Rogue.SecurityEssentials2010.

    After it reported 753 instances I closed SAS and logged off.

    After searching the internet for information about this rogue I was even more confused because

    none of the files, registry entries or processes associated with it were present on the

    laptop.

    In the SAS folder, the .exe icons had been changed, overlayed with a sign so that they resembled

    the Ghostbusters icon. I again did system checks with MalwareBytes, Portable SAS, GMER and Trojan_Killer

    and received a clean bill of health.

    I then uninstalled SAS and rebooted. This time all of the problems had disappeared. I then downloaded and installed

    SAS 4.42.0.1000, updated and again ran SAS, MalwareBytes, and Trojan_Killer. I received a clean bill of

    health from all of these.

    From this I can only assume that SAS itself had become corrupted in some way. Have there been any more

    reports of problems with 4.41.0.1000 ?


  3. Hello

    I have set up my wifes laptop (NEC i_Select 5210) to dual boot with

    PCLinuxOS and Win XP Home, which is the original OS. The laptop was

    bought used with a single partition containing XP, and has no restore

    partition, so restoring the original XP is not an option.

    The XP partition has XP Home, fully updated, Avast anti-virus,

    MalwareBytes and SuperAntispyware (full paid for version) for malware

    detection, and Comodo firewall.

    Up until 2 days ago (after about 2 years) I have had no trouble with

    this XP setup at all, but suddenly I am experiencing problems.

    On booting I get a message from SAS that it has detected and blocked a

    potentially harmful application and gives me the option to find out

    more about this app or to scan the system. Selecting either of these

    has no effect, and SAS then stops running. If I then try to start SAS

    the same thing happens. Also a few seconds after SAS closes, so does Comodo.

    I have done a full system scan with Avast and Malwarebytes and downloaded the

    portable version of SAS and did a full scan with that. In all cases no problems

    were detected.

    Neither Firefox nor IE will run, just showing a corresponding process

    in task manager.

    Can you advise ?
