Hello to all at the Malware Removal University

Unfortunately, I have had a spy-ware and virus problem for a while, it seems to be very unobtrusive so I have not bothered to do anything about it till today. It has got the point where I am looking for help, and it seems this is one of the best sites for advice!

I have been reading other posts and the advice you provide is excellent!

I have been having a problem with the file

not-a-virus:AdWare.Win32.SaveNow.bi

I have downloaded hijackthis and here are the results:

But I’m too scared to delete it until I have further conformation.

I hope this is ok, as I haven't restarted the computer today.

Thanks for your super quick response and I’ll hope to hear back from you in the near future.

Thanks again

Yeah… everything seems fine!

This is the first time I have used HijackThis and on line scanning, as these programs are so easy to use, I will defiantly start to use these programs far more regularly as a monthly maintenance routine. I don't use internet explorer and have no need to use P2P sharing or Hacking sites so I'm generally going to be safe (ish).

If I get future issues, how do I self diagnose the problem? And what should I look out for in the future? And more to the point, how do you decide what is and what isn't a virus?

I understand the look of a report line like this is bad, due to it being the only line on the HijackThis log with (no name) and (no file)

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

However, how did you know this was dodgy?

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [VVSN] G:\Program Files\VVSN\VVSN.exe

It was showing as a Microsoft update in the program folder, I wouldn't delete this file dude to uncertainty whether my system needs it?

Thank you so much for your help and advice, it has been very quick and concise, if I ever get a problem in the future I know where to come!

All the best in the future

All is learnt through training. It is difficult to explain what could be what without training to gain the knowledge. As I'm sure you are aware, Malware Removal is a free training school. You are more than welcome to join. :)

However, how did you know this was dodgy?

Google and a few other sources tell me that the program and file belongs to WhenU. This is linked to what you said in your first post about not-a-virus:AdWare.Win32.SaveNow.bi

Thank you so much for your help and advice, it has been very quick and concise, if I ever get a problem in the future I know where to come!

You're welcome! :)

Do you have anymore questions or can we archive this?
