What Do You Think, FP's ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Just installed SAS again for the first time in a while & it picked up the following:

SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log

I searched the web for all of the above results & found nothing! Any ideas?

Thank you!

Thanks....I know what "Rogue anti-spyware solutions" are but why are such log reports resulting from SAS? I have NEVER downloaded any bogues AS programs. I only use some of the most popular ones available. Unless I was wrongly directed to do so at some time while using another very popular help forum, but I doubt it.

Are these files FP's? If not, should I be OK once I delete them? I scanned again & came up clean. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

At some point you must have had something that wrote those out, they are there. These do not appear to be false positives. you can delete them, they are backed up in the Quarantine should you need to restore them.

Fair enough but what exactly are they & what do they do?

I don't understand how they got there...hmmm

They don't "do" anything as they are just storage registry keys for a "rogue" product.
