  1. Strange indeed. V2 products are sold in stores across the country and online. I've used them for years. If the WOT browser extension can't be trusted, then how can one learn to trust the evaluations from it. It's a real conundrum.
  2. MB just asked today if I wanted to upgrade. Immediately upon upgrading I went to visit a website where I always go to purchase my ecigs supplies. MB popped up the message that the website is a "Fraud". Can someone look into this and let me know if I've been dupped? Thanks (alleged fraud website would be dubdubdub..v2.com)
  3. @rcmz You realize of course, you have resurrected a thread that is more than two years old. More than likely, there is no one monitoring this issue anymore. The originator of this thread could very well have purchased another computer by now.
  4. Just one of MANY reasons why users should avoid using p2p programs. Click Me.
  5. Yep...same issue. I see it was resolved once with an earlier update, then reappeared.
  6. Here we go: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.39 Database version: 2518 Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 7/28/2009 8:34:58 PM mbam-log-2009-07-28 (20-34-51).txt Scan type: Quick Scan Objects scanned: 87431 Time elapsed: 3 minute(s), 42 second(s) Memory Processes Infected: 0 Memory Modules Infected: 0 Registry Keys Infected: 0 Registry Values Infected: 0 Registry Data Items Infected: 0 Folders Infected: 0 Files Infected: 1 Memory Processes Infected: (No malicious items detected) Memory Modules Infected: (No malicious items detected) Registry Keys Infected: (No malicious items detected) Registry Value
  7. Uhmm...mbam was not running a scan when this happened, only it's active protection. It was the AVZ scan that was running. As soon as I clicked the AVZ scan button, mbam popped up the warning box that I mentioned previously. If I run mbam in developer mode, I suppose I need also to disable it's active protection? I'm thinking, what this would mean is that I would have to run the AVZ scan again, and while it is running, I should run mbam in developer mode?
  8. mbam reports the AVZ scan driver as bagel. The driver is peculiar to each machine and appears only during a scan. However, even as this is a free utility, I believe the user has the option available to enable the guard to run on system startup. If mbam is also on board and running it's real time protection, the action comes to a screaming halt. This morning, only during the AVZ scan, mbam halted the process and reported: uti2mzm2.sys as bagel...this is the same AVZ kernel driver that can be enabled to run on startup. Don't bother googling that file as it is peculiar to only my machine much li
  9. I'm not sure of the version number when it first appeared...it's been quite a while now but the version I have is "3.5.56968.437"...and I know it's installed with that one. The latest scan results: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.34 Database version: 1770 Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 2/17/2009 11:42:38 AM mbam-log-2009-02-17 (11-42-38).txt Scan type: Quick Scan Objects scanned: 58718 Time elapsed: 2 minute(s), 29 second(s) Memory Processes Infected: 0 Memory Modules Infected: 0 Registry Keys Infected: 0 Registry Values Infected: 0 Registry Data Items Infected: 0 Folders Infected: 0 Files Infec

  11. To assist in the prevention of spyware infections: Immunize your browser by installing Spywareblaster. What does it do? Prevents the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software. Blocks spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox. Restricts the actions of potentially unwanted sites in Internet Explorer. Keep your anti-virus and spyware definitions up to date. Be sure to scan often. Below you can choose from several of the freeware Firewalls available on the public domain. Even though you may have a F
  12. I'm not going to say it's a false positive...I couldn't. I'm not on the investigative team but I can say it is most definitely related to Comodo Internet Security. My scan came up with that too this morning: Files Infected: E:\WINDOWS\system32\guard32.dll (Trojan.Agent) -> No action taken. E:\WINDOWS\system32\cssdll32.dll (Trojan.Agent) -> No action taken. ...both of those are Comodo Internet Security. My guess is you have the latest version of CIS and mbam is complaining of the file as it relates to the "Safe Surf" feature. Safe Surf is one of Comodo's recent mistakes in my opinion. T
  13. Great! Now let's see a fresh HijackThis log. How's it running for you?

  15. I took some time to go over your list of installed programs a bit more. I doubt any of them relate to your issue but I should run down the list of things I took note of for you: Adobe Reader 8.1.0 is out of date. You should uninstall it and install the latest version Here. AVG Anti-Rootkit Free is no longer supported so you may as well uninstall this one. Your AVG version 8 is sufficient...just remember to keep it updated if you don't have a paid subscription for it. The tool below is shareware...you need a license for it to work. Is this a paid subscription or are you still using it as a tria

  17. Your description of folder contents for those does not seem to me to be a completed installation. Here's what I'd like you to do... For each folder having the (2) beside it, copy it's contents and then open it's corresponding program folder (that is, the other folder with the same name without the number (2) beside it)...then right click anywhere inside that folder and select "Paste". Windows will alert you if any of the files that you are transferring are duplicates and ask you if you want to replace the existing file. Compare the dates and sizes of the files that windows tells you that alrea
  18. No reason to avoid ccleaner. I use it. I have mine configured to run on system startup...that way, there's a good disk cleanup that occurs with each reboot. Not a bad idea if you gave it some thought. Let us know how the system is behaving now and if you are having any other issues. Thanks!
  19. Computer and browser slowness are not always malware related Poor performance and other problems can be the result of disk fragmentation, disk errors, corrupt system files, too many startup programs, unnecessary services running, not enough RAM, dirty hardware, etc. As your system gets older it becomes filled with more files/programs and has a natural tendency to slow down so cleaning and regular maintenance is essential. Listed below are a few things you can do to improve speed and system performance. Many of the these suggestions will apply if you're using Windows Vista but may be done a bi
  20. Please take a look at each of these folders: c:\program files\QuickTime(2) c:\program files\iTunes(2) c:\program files\iPod(2) c:\program files\Bonjour(2) ...the number "(2)" which follows each folder indicates that there is another folder in the same location with the same name. In other words, your windows explorer program file tree might look something like this: Bonjour Bonjour(2) iPod iPod(2) iTunes iTunes(2) QuickTime QuickTime(2) ...the original installation should not have the number (2) beside it. The folders with the number (2) indicate a duplicate. When you post back, tell me what y
  21. OK, I'm not seeing what I was expecting. You have no other java installations that need to be removed so why hp tool box references an old version is a mystery. You could remove the hp tool box. It's not needed either. When was your last disk cleanup and defrag?
  22. As long as you have nlite installed and are using it for system settings, you should leave those entries alone. You can run HijackThis again and check this one: O2 - BHO: (no name) - {06849E9F-C8D7-4D59-B87D-784B7D6BE0B3} - (no file) Don't forget to close all windows before clicking Fix Checked...then reboot to properly record the changes to the hard disk. Run your disk clean manager and a defrag. Reboot again when you finish and post back a fresh HijackThis log. Advise how the system behaves now. Thanks!
