Hi its been a while since i was on this part of the forum.

I was doing a pandascan a while ago. I wasnt expecting much on it. Preparing myself for just a few spyware maybe as it had been a while since i last scanned my computer. After a while however it picked up these 2 files as suspicious:

C:\documents and settings\ben\my documents\ati updates\dcprosetup_15.zip[dcprosetup.exe][DCleaner.exe]
C:\documents and settings\ben\my documents\DCProsetup_15\DCProSetup.exe[DCleaner.exe]

Now i thought that these were legit files? Could it be a mistake on pandas behalf or should i look into it more? What are your opinons on the matter?

P.S. Thats twice now my internets konked out while on BC.... Sound supcious? Should i go into safe mode and try a few tests?

Use the program in the link below to remove the malware.

Ok sorry for bothering people. Just had words with my dad and apparently it was installed when i was having problems with my graphics card. Apparently its harmless (fingers crossed) and hes told me that if its really bugging me (which it is) to just remove it useing add/remove. Thanks for the help buddy :thumbsup:

A quick question though. That link, the rouge remover. Is that a programme just for removing stuff that pretends to be legitimate programmes or is it any type of maleware. thanks again :flowers:

I think the program lists 300+ rogue programs that it will remove. A lot of rogue programs are installed voluntarily and they may have an uninstaller that actually works. Rogues generally make false claims, come with adware/spyware without letting the user know and a lot of times cause a lot of damage.
I would remove it since everything I saw Googling said it was an undesireable program.
