Several weeks ago, I downloaded a trial version of the GoodSol solitaire game. I use Outpost Firewall Pro which has spyware detection and I also run CA AntiVirus, Ad-Aware and Spybot. No malware found. Tonite I came across a product called MaxSecure Spyware Detector which discovered a worm called TimeSink. Details shown are: WormType=Registry Key, Worm=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GoodSol. Can anyone shed any light on this worm, and also any info about the MaxSecure Spyware Detector is appreciated. Thanks.

It's on Spyware Warriors Rouge List

Spyware Detector spywaredetector.net false positives work as goad to purchase [A: 7-10-05 / U: 7-10-05]

It's more than likely a goad to get you to buy the product.

If you think you are infected submit a hijackthis log to the HJT Forum.

How to submit a hijackthis log

Download Hijackthis

Try running the following from safe mode (Getting to safe-mode).

Also try installing and running A2 Free and Ewido again run from safe mode.

I'd also run Spybot(Spybot Tutorial) and Adaware

If your using Win2K/XP run adaware/spybot from "safe mode with command prompt" If your using Win9x just run it from safe mode the command line options aren't needed..

[b]At the C:\ prompt type the following:-


cd\
C:\progra~1\spybot~1\spybotsd.exe /autocheck /autofix
cd\
C:\progra~1\lavasoft\ad-awa~1\ad-aware.exe

Thanks stidyup,

I saw where Spyware Detector is claimed to output false positive results.
TimeSink's files are tsadbot.exe, tsad.dll, vcpdll.dll, FlexActv.dll, and Addon2vb.dll, and these files don't reside in my computer as far as I can tell. Neither SpyBot or Ad-Aware has ever reported malware, so I think the worm alert is false.
