After smelling mal-ware on my XP-Home PC, I've been on three fori (3rd person plural-Neuter), starting with MBAM's, where the folks were complaining about MBAM not working on this IS2010XP. So far my XP-Pro PC seems clean.

The McAfee "Avert" notices indicated that the more recent malaware is much trickier than the batch I saw in early 2009.

So, I registered on a couple of other techie communes. One said to come here and get Spyware Doctor, so I also registered here.

I'll jump over to the appropriate malware forum and get some details, and palaver some.

Best to keep the surfing down until the commercial anti-viruses and anti-malwarers catchup (if they do).

Happy bytes to All'Yall. :thumbsup:

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

We do not mirror or recommend Spyware Doctor. If you see it on our site it is a Google ad

Please take the time to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the board works.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.
