    Actually not... I'm not saying Avast isn't good... it ( as with most antivirus programs ) isn't made to detect this type of infection simply because many of these types of infections are classified subjectively. In fact, Malwarebytes Antimalware, which is great at the tougher spywares, still passes by a lot of the lesser ones. I use a combination of them in order to clear out most of them but only after I've manually removed what I can find by hand first.

    I'd try a couple of Ccleaner run-thru's also, Krusty. Does he have a firewall on either the 'puter or router? I put Comodo free firewall on DD and DGD's computers 'cause they have a way of clickin' into bad stuff all the time. :facepalm:

    CCleaner is a great util and I do use it before and after removing malware but it isn't protection software and doesn't detect anything... it cleans out temp file locations and can find invalid registry entries... it's a standard regular maintenance software. I also recommend firewalls but they don't protect from stuff already installed so much in most cases... For example if you give Internet Explorer or Chrome etc permission to access the internet... then any add-ons or extensions that are installed into IE or Chrome also get permission automatically.

    In fact... current types of protection software is inadequate for the simple reason that they work by using a "blacklist" of known malware and known malicious actions... they can't detect or protect against the unknowns which is how most systems are now infected.

    What needs to happen is a shift in the direction we take to protect our systems... it needs done on the OS level ( and user level also ). We need to switch to using "whitelists" with a defined set of permissions ( allowed actions ) instead... it is easier to define known good software than to guess at an unknown that may come out at anytime. The OS should not allow any software what so ever to run if it isn't on an allowed whitelist. The OS should also let the user add allowed programs onto the whitelist so new unknown ( or little known ) programs won't be blocked.

    I don't get upset about many things but I HATE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME. I just can't see where it is necessary to have to readjust our inner time clocks twice a year. :facepalm:

    Now back to our regularly scheduled conversations :D

    When it was 6 months on and 6 months off, I could almost understand it. Now that it is 8 months on and 4 off, it makes less than no sense. Why not just go on DST and stay there?
