Hi Admin...There is a program called Junkware Removal Tool... Delete this from your download section, as it deletes "Wondershare" as well as "Conduit"....BOTH these programs CAN be "Legit" (although SOME rogueware creates these directories as well).

 

CONDUIT "CAN BE" part of "QuickBooks" (an accounting program)...so is "Wondershare"...which is a VIDEO CONVERTER program. JRT deleted these folders under Program Files :-(

 

...just thought i'd mention it...

 

 

some info to bare in mind ---> http://community.intuit.com/posts/lacertedms-conduit-failures

...We all know something...but we will NEVER know everything :grinner:

 

Cryptlocker "Process" remover...will NOT delete Cryptolocker, only the processes...( a "safety precaution" I took for those who still want to "try" paying the ransom to get their files back. DON'T FORGET TO MONITOR YOUR TIME LEFT BEFORE PAYMENT! )

 

("KillCrypt" will automaticly open %appdatadir%...just guide this to Cryptolocker-Virus and double-click on it. Remember...if you "restart" your system, the processes will be back...use this only for emergencies if you want to create a quick document. While this processes is killed, your docs wont get infected, but WILL be encrypted (unusable) when you restart the PC/Laptop OR clicking on the Virus again!!!)

Hello,

Conduit is a toolbar engine installed alongside many free applications in order to generate ad revenue for the company. While not explicitly malware, it is often installed stealthily with little or no interaction from the end user. It is not an integral component of Quickbooks or any other application.

As far as your reference to Wondershare goes, I believe you may be referring to Wondershare Toolbar. . . which is in the same class as Conduit.

Junkware Removal Tool is an application designed to remove these kinds of applications as they are unwelcome to the vast majority of users. If you wish to keep them installed then you should not run Junkware Removal Tool.

Please post for me a copy of the log that was generated when you ran Junkware Removal Tool. This way I can see exactly what was removed and if there are any false positives that need addressing.

It is called JRT.txt and is located on your desktop.

Thank you,

~Blade
