in over my head.

Recommended Posts

after installing quick time i noticed attacks comming from this started alarm bells ringing.

so i tried on my own to figure,this led to me eventally useing tools i wasnt comfy with.

(OLT by oldtimmer,and rootrepeal) as well as a few other there just the ones that i find hard to figure.

i am not sure if to post a hi-jack log or not as i cant find anything useing that tool.

nor did i do so when i removed some other stuff that was malware.

today i moped up with Sophos threat detection test witch found Sus/TinyDL-G however that was in my system restore folder.

rootrepleal reports some hooking and some hidden code some might belong to IObit that was removed,i say that as i did find some IObit stuff i thought i had removed.however i am not sure 100% it is or isnt.

i am told the some off the hooking belongs to invald pathways.

the hidden code ive not tried to kill as that is going over my head and i dont know what it belongs to.and ive left it alone esp as it says system process.

rootrepleal log.

i will post a hi-jack log even thou i cant find nothing there,just in case it helps.

i must admit apart from that code witch might well be legit as it is a system process i think i now might be clean,i am not sure so hence my post.
