I am a very safe user. Run Avast!, and do a weekly Spybot scan. I was having some "odd" issues on the PC over past few days. Just wasn't running right. I did a boot scan w/Avast, and did a scan with Spybot. Avast found nothing. Spybot found a group of items, all removed.
Still browser seemed slow. Went through <Tools><Options> and under "Connections" tab, there was an entry to use "MMS Service Studio" in the dial up and VPN settings. When I do searches on MMS Studio, I find links to ".HU" domains, which makes me suspicious. I also do not find anything that says how it got loaded, or what it's purpose in life is.
I do not tether my cell phone to this PC, and have not loaded anything in months.
Also, when I then checked my "Privacy" and "Security" tabs for those settings, the slider bar had been removed, and the pop up blocker had been unchecked.
Obviously, something happened, I believe it has something to do with "MMS Service Studio" suddenly showing up in "Connections", but I cannot find anything about it that is useful.
