heard of a process called NWV8Q~1.com ?

Recommended Posts

ive been seeing this in my task manager for the last 2-3 days now. It either shows up as NWV8Q~1.com or as variants NWV8Qpngh.com and so on.

malwarebytes picked up 2 objects during the scan but thats when it started to crash. So now i just got the new update for malwarebytes this morning and been running a scan. What's odd is the full scan is going on right now and it's been an hr and only 97000 files have been checked. Before this update it usually took me 45 mins for a full scan even with this weird process NWV8Q.com.

Anyhow appreciate if anyone can clarify this about the process and why MWB is slow now during full scans.

That is reassuring. But here's what happened, ran DDS and it stalled thrice, had to reboot. I dont even have an AV kit running here, internet was off while running DDS. So now is there anything *credible* malware bytes can request so i can show logs? If DDS is actually develoepd by your staff you would think malwarebytes would put it up on their site, than having to link it to some 3rd party site. Having to reboot my machine for no apparent reason because of DDS makes me not want to use DDS.

If the only way for this to be resolved is using DDS, then I'll pass. And malwarebytes didnt pick up a goddamn thing in the last couple scans i did in the last few days, besides it freezing up and the zillion updates you guys have, nothing fruitful came out of it. Spybot managed to pickup a few things while MWB failed miserably. Heck it didn even launch in a couple of instances, it did launch in safe mode but obviously MWB found No immediate threats, So you tell me where i go with this and we can all save teh trouble and I'll try to put on my happy lil face and say " MWB ROCKS"

You want to cool your jets? and get this fixed or not?

The tools we ask you to use are hosted on other trusted sites. If you do not want to go there, your choice. I can be helping other people.

Did you get & run the MS MSRT?

why do you not have an anti-virus?

You keep saying it's hosted by "trusted" and so forth. As a customer I dont frankly care until i see evidence of it. Is there a publisher for this file? None. IS there a disclaimer during install or a policy agreement? none. What part of trusted should i go with? Your words? Inspite of all this, I did install and DDS stalled the system. Not once, not twice. friggin thrice! I'm on winxp 32 bit, so the MSRT as you mentioned is for all 64 bit, so no.

regarding an AV kit, i didnt feel the need for it thus far but you could possibly use that as an excuse for any and all virus/malware on my machine at the moment which is fair.

Thanks for the effort, I'm not going through another stall because of DDS.

If you do not care to take our trust in those tools or the sites we recommend, then I cannot help you any further. I can help lots of other folks instead. Folks who are more receptive and cooler.

There are other tools that can be used. But that is late now. I'll not deal with a hothead who has no antivirus to boot.

Since you do not wish to partake of our advice, there's no option but to close this topic.
