I was once advised that having a "good registry cleaner" utility was always a good idea, so I have been using Uniblue RegistryBooster 2009 almost all year now and it usually seems to keep my registry in good health and clean from errors.
Yesterday I was advised by Uniblue that if I want complete protection than I need to upgrade to RegistryBooster 2010.
(RegBooster 2010 was downloaded directly from Uniblue so I know it's an official version)
Here's the problem(s)
Whenever I run a registry scan. During the scan I get approximately 2 - 6 messages (from Intrusion Prevention in my Symantec Norton Internet Security 2010)
The message is as follows:
[Activity] An intrusion attempt by localhost was blocked. Application path \DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUME1\PROGRAM FILES\UNIBLUE\REGISTRYBOOSTER 2010\REGISTRTBOOSTER.EXE
[Date & Time] 11/16/09, 4:27PM
[Recommended Action] No Action Required
RISK NAME - HTTP MS MPEG2TuneRequestControl ActiveX Instantation
Attacking Computer - localhost (127.0.0.1, 10435)
Attacker URL - localhost:10435/query
Destination Address - localhost (127.0.0.1, 1045)
Traffic Description - TCP, Port 10435
"Network traffic from localhost matches the signature of a known attack. To stop being notified of this type of traffic go to..."
With each notification from Symantec NIS2010 the "Risk Name" is different but the "Attacking Computer" "Attacker URL" are the same in each notification. Another one of the risk names I got today was "HTTP Winzip ActiveXControl KillBit"
Does any of the pros here know if this is just a bug on Uniblue's part or if Symantec NIS 2010 is reporting a false negative, or if even possible that I am being attacked when I run RegistryBooster2010?
In each of the notifications from Notron IS2010 the risk's status is always "Blocked" so should I just ignore the notifications and consider myself safe?
Do I need to get rid of Uniblue RegistryBooster2010?
Sorry for all the questions to whoever takes the time to read this and answer, thank you very much!
Also, I am under the assumption that Uniblue is a good and trustworthy company, anyone who begs to differ then PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!!
