DoeZ,

At first review, it looks like the program Unchecky is being recognized by Panda as a possible threat.
i0.exe belongs to Unchecky, which also updates automatically, so Panda is probably picking it up also.

If you wish, go back to Panda and open Settings > Antivirus > Exclusions

In Exclusions, use the areas provided to prevent Unchecky from being targeted by Panda.

See if that will stop the problem.

Will analyze the reports you provided, and will get back with you tomorrow with any pertinent action.

Thank you, for bearing with me.

Ok...but should I keep my Panda off then and wait for you tomorrow?

Also is that Unchecky supposed to be seen...because there isn't anything in any of the boxes...

Turn Panda on, and then establish Unchecky as an Exclusion in Panda!

Don't understand the question...in what boxes?
If you mean the Exclusion boxes of Panda, you need to enter the info in them.

Questions are never stupid. Forums are predicated upon questions. Ask away!!

Under Files and Folders, type in:
Unchecky
i0.exe


Under Files restored from quarantine and excluded from scanning, you will need to look at the Panda Quarantine to see what files are there. The Quarantine is shown on the main program console of Panda.

Will explain the entries in Hosts and some other stuff tomorrow.

So far I do not see a virus on the computer, so, please do not be concerned.

Relax, get some sleep, and, tomorrow is another day.

BTW, are you a retired Postal employee?



Later...

Let's hope you keep it that way...but I think it's messed up somehow...

Not quite retired yet...I'm completely disabled now from a accident on the job...how'd you know that?

NVM...I forgot I had that in there...are you P.O. worker?
