    Default Rootalyzer log

    If all is well at this point, let me know and I will close the topic.
    Well I originally posted a Rootalyzer log, we haven't actually discussed if the items on that scan were indicative of any particular problem. I posted it here because it is Safer Networking program.
    I was also interested in discussing rootkits as a friend has just had a heap of trouble laid at the feet of "root viruses" ,I assume the person was referring to rootkits. I have also done a scan with Rootkit Revealer from Sysinternals. (I tried to register with their forum once, still waiting for the confirmation email. Plus being Microsoft they are likely to respond in bureaucratic fashion rather than plain English, the notes with Rootkit Revealer are very much cya). But I didn't know what to make of the result. The help that comes with Rootkit Revealer reads just like the entry in Wikipedia, so much so I think plagarism is a possiblity.
    Also dBpoweramp Music Conveter is not working any better now than when I started the thread. So I don't feel I am any further advanced.
    When we started our dialogue I was accumulating the files I needed to do another clean install as that appears to be the only possible way of getting dMC working (when it does it work it's CD ripping is better than EAC, and it is a handy little app for tag editing and format conversion, you can get a thirty day trial if you think it is something you might use). Then again I have just installed some much needed extra RAM in my second computer and dMC is working on that (with a different firewall and AV). Now that computer can do more than one thing at a time I may just run dMC from there, and remove it from this machine. Then I can make my drive image.
    I will have a look at those links in the morning, and talk to Adobe about the FF plug in; right now I am sick of looking at this thing.
    Thanks for your help, Secunia is a good little app to know about, though as I said I have my doubts about an out of date Quickstep being a security threat.
    Don't forget your sunscreen (Australia has the world's highest incidence of skin cancer), and a hat.
    Cheers

    Where you made your mistake was in the beginning when did not read the "Before you Post" instructions. No where in the instructions are you asked for a RootAlyzer log in the Malware Removal forum. You can ask questions here:
    http://forums.spybot.info/forumdisplay.php?f=46
    Where the creator of the tool can advise you.

    As far as rootkits, which I see no evidence of, I can run scans to look if that is what you want. I would start with this scanner to look for and evidence:
    Do an online scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner

    http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner


    1. Note: If you are using Windows Vista, open your browser by right-clicking on its icon and select 'Run as administrator' to perform this scan.
    2. Click on the Accept button and install any components it needs.
    3. The program will install and then begin downloading the latest definition files.
    4. After the files have been downloaded on the left side of the page in the Scan section select My Computer
    5. This will start the program and scan your system.
    6. The scan will take a while, so be patient and let it run.
    7. Once the scan is complete, click on View scan report
    8. Now, click on the Save Report as button.
    9. Save the file to your desktop.
    10. Copy and paste that information in your next post

    Also dBpoweramp Music Conveter is not working any better now than when I started the thread. So I don't feel I am any further advanced.
    Once again, this is a malware removal forum, if you have programs not working correctly, consult experts with the program in their support forums.

    Concerning RAM, if you do not have enough, you can have issues with resource intense programs, here is some information:

    I also suggest you run the free diagnostic scan here:
    http://www.pcpitstop.com/pcpitstop/default.asp
    (there is no reason to purchase anything, the diagnostic report is free)
    The scan may point out issues in other areas than malware. You can get help with the results here:

    I did signal my intentions with the title of the post, and opened with
    I hope I am using the right part of the forum.
    That would have been a good time to tell me I was in the wrong part of the forum.
    Concerning RAM, if you do not have enough, you can have issues with resource intense programs, here is some information:
    That mention of RAM clearly mentions another computer, not this one.
    As for specialist apps, and their forums, all they have suggested is a clean reinstall and progressive reinstallation of security apps. As I said I am very reluctant to do that, due to previously being burned with successive bits of malware popping up.
    As for Vista, the HJT reports show I am using XP.
    I will try that other part of the forum you have mentioned, also have a look at the Kaspersky on line link.
    Cheers
