The other day I had the following trojan which I quarantined (I do not
know if this quarantine was the thing to do?):
Last night I looked at the Windows Firewall Exceptions list and found
Quick Play and Quick Play Resident Program as exceptions; should I turn
these off? I'm assuming they are related to the trojan above? Spyware
Terminator scans are clean after the trojan quarantine; Spyware
Terminator was the only thing that seemed to find this trojan (I also
have SpySweeper, AVAST, Windows Firewall, Windows Defender, Spyware
Blaster and Spyware Guard running on the notebook).
Other Windows Firewall Exceptions that are turned on (checked) in the
Exceptions list are (none of these were turned on by me):
Cyberlink Power Director
MSN Messenger 7.0
Are all of these valid? I do have Firefox.
I Googled these for trojan information and I'm not sure if Cyberlink
Power Director and Remote Assistance are safe? Taskpanl appears to be
safe and Core Networking and Network Discovery may be safe but I'm not
sure of any of this?
I'm considering unchecking all but Firefox and MSN Messenger and see
what if anything tries to use them; Is this safe and appropriate to do?
Thank you! Mike
