suddenly, I can’t open attachments in my frontier-yahoo DSL email account, but they open in safe mode. Conclusion: I have a virus, so I’m trying the security tango. What a massive undertaking. It doesn’t mention Windows 7, which I have. I’m on the Stinger step. Full scan running for 3 hours with no progress bar so I don’t know how much left. It may go forever. Scans can be quick or full. No mention of which. I chose full. Big mistake. Same thing with Microsoft Essestials. Full takes forever. Can I do quick? I still don’t know if I have a virus. Is it always like this?
The surest way to test for rootkits is to use an offline scan, because you really can’t trust anything your operating system (or a program running on it) is telling you. In this post, I recommend two downloadable CDs (which you need to download and burn on an uninfected computer) for offline scanning.
I would suggest that you download whatever tools you’re going to use from the creator of the tool’s own website, rather than any popular “download site”, particularly Cnet, download.com & related. The reason is that Cnet has started bundling adware/malware such as toolbars and such with their downloads.
With some hunting, you can find the direct download site operated by whoever made whatever it you’re trying to grab.
