System check - XP Pro
« on: February 06, 2012, 03:20:55 PM »
Having thought I had completely got rid of the System Check virus (posted elsewhere on the forum) I was surprised to see an entry in Start/All programs as: System Check with subfolders System Check and Uninstall. I presume these are the leftovers of the virus but want to make sure before deleting them.

@ Pondus and true indian
Konfoozed was adviced to open a new topic here to make sure he has realy gotten rid of System Check and be sure no hidden nasty stuff remain.

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=92002.msg737476#msg737476

I already told him that he should post the logs, and wait for Essexboy

No. Konfoozed being a newbie posted for help in another member's thread. I told him from the beginning to seek help here. He instead opted to try bleepingcomputer instructions, but still got some problems to resolve. Read the link I posted. Since I am not certified to remove malware, my only option was to send him here. Did I do something wrong for you to post such a sarcastic statement ? I have always considered you to be very helpful and patience member of this forum, moreover with members who do not have an extensive knowledge about computers.

Regards.

PS I do not know why this post came out like a quote since my text is out of it.


Thank you...nice to know someone can be understanding. I tried to post in the correct area.

Probably best...even as a newbie I recognize the forum is to offer help to others...not use it as an ego-trip.

I might have misinterpreted it. My bad.

Yes, let's wait. I hope he does not find the instruction too overwhelming.

I was writing this while you posted your answer for the quotes. Yes I did it like you said and still everything came out blue. Don't know why.

@ Konfoozed.

Since most of us here come all over the world and English is a second language sometimes estatements are misinterpreted. Pondus is a very helpful and knowledgeable member of the community, and my conversation with him was to be clear in our procedure to do things. Nothing else. We are still waiting for your logs.

I haven't posted logs or contacted Essexboy as whilst I was waiting for response from the forum I ran CCleaner and discovered that the Start program was in name only. Hopefully it is now all resolved, thanks.
