I was helping a friend with some issues last night, and strange things showed up. She allowed me to access her computer through something called JAWS Tandum, a feature of the primary screen reader we use that allows people to give remote support or training with permission from the user who's computer is being accessed. well, her computer wasn't updating, so I wanted to check some things out for her since she is less savvy on computers than I am. She had some questions about a bunch of programs in her computer, so I looked through them. I found a few things that seem a little strange to me. Some of the names include, update cleaner, windows install cleaner, and LXCJ. Anyone recognize them? I left everything alone as I didn't recognize them, but ther'es more. I also found some things that I believe are orphans, but there's no way to be sure. Or is there? I found the folder for comoto, not sure which product from them it was, but it's kind of odd to me as she has never told any of us about Comoto. The folder from the pro version of Avast was still there, though I'm pretty sure that it's just a left over from an uninstall that was done only using the normal add or remove programs API. There were also some log files I found strangely hanging out in the root of her C: drive. they were namely lxcjscan.log and NtdClient.log. Again, Anyone recognize them? The other thing that concerns me is the number of realtime scanners she has on her computer. I spotted MBAM pro and SAS pro both running at the same time, with MSE also there (that being the program that won't update). I begin to wonder if the member of her family that claims to give her administrative access, yet hides more than fifty percent of the control pannel from her in a way that none of us can see, searches her drive at unknown intervals, controls the installations to her computer, and probably does more, really knows what he is doing. I'm not judging anyone, this is just my thoughts. any input would be great.
