Kicking off a scan

Post  Dan Ellsworth on Tue Mar 24 2009, 16:25

Whether I have this one or not, I just started a Windows LiveCare ... Scan,
http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm?s_cid=sah .
According to the warning, if I have a current anti-virus (I do.) I should be OK, but a free scan seemed worth taking.

That's a weird name. Tobie, thanks for expressing your concern.

Still scanning

Post  Dan Ellsworth on Tue Mar 24 2009, 19:55

I'm still running that Windows Live Scan, which is so slow I don't know whether it's worth doing if you already have a security program in place.

Meanwhile, I've been reading up on it, and it looks like a major monster. It is supposed to do something to gather up computers under its spell ... but here my understanding fades out. Anyway it's worth being protected from.

It seems Judy's Mackintosh is not at risk.

This is what I think

I think it mainly goes to people who have file share set up. I have used a lot of different viral programs and now use a free one called
Spyware Terminator, it found a lot of bad stuff on my Puter and it does work much better. I can't see paying for one when there are so many to choose from, trail and error lead me to the one I use now.
