If thats what I listed as unknown, I remember what that is now, ...I have 512 mb thumb drive from Lexar called "Jump drive Secure" (LxrJD31...Lxr= Lexar/JD= Jump Drive/31 model #?), it can be set up where you can divide the 512mb of space into a public folder with no need for a p.w. and set a "secure" partition that to enter it would require a p.w. Partition space between the 2 can be sized to anything up to the 512mb thumb limit.

Works great on XP, but did away with all of that and re-formated as a plain old drive to be used a password reset thumb drive since it's only 512mb.

However, Se7en didn't play well with it so that can be removed.

To the OP,

Sorry if I went OT, but while researching this google thing, I came across those items.

Not sure what that google is in autorun\services and like I said, check your task scheduler library for anything google, ...I would Delete 'em. I did, but then again I have nothing of google other than it set to home page.

Also found this in KIS_2011 Firewall:

Attachment 122400

It was in the trusted folder with full permissions to do whatever it wanted to do, but moved it to restricted and locked it down even further. They're installers, so nothing is installed, but just in-case they get a itch to install, they can't now.

Thanks for this thread, just like you said, google is reaching a little to deep imho, specialy when its just my home page, no toolbars/chrome/etc!

However, when you get the search results page, always check the top right to make sure you're not currently signed into Google, as this is another way (besides installed programs) that they log your activity to monitor and sell your marketing information, or tailor Google ads to insert in webpages.
Thats exactly how I have it, and have no account with google/youtube/etc. ...no google accounts created.

Yet there is that entry in autorun/services, had 2 items in Task Scheduler, and 2 entries of google installers in "trusted" firewall folder with full permissions, ...have been moved to "high restricted" and locked down even more.

Makes ya wonder...

That entry in Kaspersky does not add itself, that would be against all basic Firewall setup. Hence I would assume you at some time approved the access. Or that Google own stock in Kaspersky Labs. Or that KIS sucks Googles *lls. Excuse my french.

LMAO!!!

...I don't know how they got there, but are locked down now.

Might be when you install or update Java, Adobe Reader/FP/SW, or other, where they're always offering to install a toolbar like google, ...but I take my time and Always Un-tick 'em and don't allow them to install, ...never have I had a 3rd party toolbar install or have just showed up in IE.
