Well, it's not been resolved for me vecchio. Kaspersky keeps registry entries for its HIPS operation protected and will not allow changes. Therefore, I always have some 'issues' unresolved: hence the...

Having used RM7 on a daily basis on very fresh re-installs of XP Pro SP3 and Vista SP1 (Home Premium and Ultimate) and despite using Tune Up Utilities, RM 8 tells me in no uncertain terms and in...
My final word on the forum.
I have ditched Spyware Doctor for good with over 100 days left to go on my license for the following reasons:
1. Spyware Doctor is a bloated buggy resource hogger....

Sandboxie is a useful application that will allow you to keep an area of yr computer sectioned off and separate from yr normal computer. You can install (most) programs and browse the internet...

"I had to pay a computer expert to fix my computer. He had to re-install windows XP2 and the new XP3 service pack."
Really? You paid to re-install XP?

What don't you like about it?
I have tested it quite a bit now - installing Spybot and Ad-Aware 2007 for example: two applications I would NEVER foist on my OS for real. Ran scans with them and...

I run Sandboxie and Spyware Doctor (full version) and have the former set not to start with windows and the latter starts automatically. I have no conflicts with these two apps...

Open the program and click on 'Settings' and then from the sub-menu click on 'Global Actions List'. Sorry, got the name a bit wrong! :rolleyes:
This is where you will find the results of the...

The dialogue box alerting to the 'problem' gives 2 choices: 'allow' or 'block'. If you want to keep the guards on, then for the moment 'allow' any of these alerts which refer to basic Windows system...

I think it's safe to say that the 'infection' is a false positive and can be ignored.
To prove whether it was JUST the updates or some unfortunate combination, someone would have to report the...

Are you running XP SP3 PJWilkin?
I'll bet you are. The rundll32.exe file has a date code which tells me it was part of the service pack updates...

No, don't block it! This round of updates is a fiasco. You will be blocking Windows system files here. Not good. Go into the Global exclusions folder and delete the recent addition, or change to...

I've personally restored again to a good image and turned SD OFF!
I will wait 'till this issue has been sorted out.
Dearie me. Do they not TEST this stuff?
05-20-2008, 06:39 PM
Could AChen please fix this in autoupdates. This is an error!
The same thing is happening for me and I have restored an image via Norton Ghost which, at the time and before the latest set of...

Best thing for you to do would be to use sandboxie: http://www.sandboxie.com/ and use a sandboxed browser. All the changes and infections will be discarded afterwards...
The browser will operate...

When I bought my Dell Dimension, I was unaware as to the mess my OS was in 'out the box'. The first thing that happened was that the Norton Internet Security 2005 package that was installed...

Did you notice any shouting? No.
Complaining, yes indeedy. No I'm not interested in knowing why as I will personally never use this app. or recommend it to friends. My dad is getting on a bit now...
I responded via the questionnaire when I removed the app. and gave the filename which caused the bsod.
The only variable which changed to the system in question was the installation of TF. This...
If there is one thing for sure in this life, it is that NO software application should cause Windows to crash AT ANY TIME!
If it does, it is dreadful and shoddy.
I put the free Threatfire (latest version) on my Dad's PC as a replacement for Anti-Bot and, within MINUTES, a bsod!
File TfFsysmon.sys (?) was the reported culprit.
Make sure that pctsTray.exe is not being blocked by yr firewall. It's probably not a bad idea to explicitly 'Allow' the use of all .exe files within the Spyware Doctor folder...

Yes the new version works fine. Feel free to post back or PM me if you have any problems or questions regarding KIS. I realise this is a Spyware Doctor forum but hey...

"Currently I am running SD Ver 4.1 quite happily with Norton Internet Security 2005 and I am not receiving any conflicts or slowdowns etc etc."
Good decision about using KIS against Norton 2005!...
