Windows 7: VIRUS!

24 May 2011   #21

Win7 Ultimate 64bit


Altap Salamander actually was made to be a file manager until some tech's discovered it RSHA capability. Frankly (imho) it is weak when searching hidden files(you can't find a rouge with this app) chances are because you trusted the file manager you missed Herss.exe. There are far more better apps to use when hunting hidden/replicating files. And I do not use the default windows search when I hunt down a rouge I use a far more better/meaner beast but then again, as I always mention, this is just me.

but i dont know what your trying to point with this post are you trying to say that i should use back avast?? dont worry evryone of us has a time of choice im just trying another suggestion...because ive tried already avast,and the point of this thread was about "HELP!VIRUS"..and now my virus was cured its my now dcsion how to prevent it..and what should i used ,sir
The post is an opinion sharing (where upon learning that you have removed the virus and cured your system) I made an open effort to give an opinion of how "your event" transpired and possible solutions to undertake to not have a "game over" situation again. There was nothing in the post mentioning "use this-use that", if there was a closely related term it was with "..that's just me".

So with that ("that's-just-me-thing") it is in fact the "ball is in your hand now" (re: ..."now my virus was cured its my now dcsion how to prevent it..and what should i used ,sir..---as you eloquently pointed out").

Just inputs to an apparently-solved-but-not yet-closed-thread. The post was still open as you did not request the mods to close it to discourage additional commenting. And, as all members who want to share and help, I posted to add help opinion. It is upon you what course you will take. Whatever you choose:

a. prevention or cure
b. accept/not-accept the "wrong-user-input-wrong-app-usage-fact"
c. stay naive and trust yourself..etc. will be on you and not with "us" who share's help opinion to your regard. All replies have a clear intention that is to help you, as Layback Bear said,

Some post give suggestion of how to get rid of the infection and some on how to stop from getting them again. All are intended to help you.
You take care kid and thank you.
