Internet Security 2010

Recommended Posts

I have had a couple of friends get infected with "Internet Security 2010".

With the first one, I was able to use MBAM to scan and clean the PC.

On the other friend's PC, it was so bad, I had to format/recover from the DELL recovery partition.

In both cases, the infection either came back or they simply got re-infected. One of them was good for about a month and the other one lasted a week (the one I formatted!)

Is there any authoritative information on how this infection happens? Both of them said they only search eBay and check email. (One of them was using a utility called "grabit" which apparently is good for searching alt.MP3 on usenet. I didn't know people still used usenet! She apparently pays $12/month for the full version...

On another note:

I am assuming that scheduled scans only work with the full version of MBAM.

I tried the cmd line "mbam /schedule 18" and nothing happens around 6pm.

Can anyone confirm that is the case?

Best regards,

No guarantee but in most current Malware attacks we're able to stop them. But on any given day there are always new ones and if you happen to hit upon them just at that point in time where we've not added protection from it or IP blocking then it's possible that we can miss it too, but overall we're one of the best on the market for prevention as well.

You can always obtain support for detection and removal from the forum so that you don't have to format and start over, but it can take a few days to complete.

We don't work on Malware removal in the general forums.

Please print out, read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then post a NEW topic here.

One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.
