Hi, I just switched from Norton to Kaspersky (KAS). I am running Windows 7 Professional, but for whatever reason, it seems like a large amount of the processes on my machine are running as x86. In any case, I used to regularly scan with Norton and never had any issues other than tracking cookies. On the first KAS scan, the software identified one source of adware (not-a-virus:AdWare.Win32.Agent.aece in my downloads folder (setup.exe). It also identified three critical vulnerabilities. Two related to my system being enabled to have autorun on the hard drive and network drive. And the third, Java's update 25 had not been installed. I've been noticing for a while now that, on start-up, a Java update icon shows up, but when I used to click on it, a prompt would always pop up stating that the update could not be downloaded. So, I directed KAS to disable the autorun on the hard drive and network drive, then I manually downloaded and installed the 25 udpate for Java x86 and x64. I ran the vulnerability scan again, the Java issue appears to be resolved. Now I'd really appreciate the help of someone who knows what they're doing look at my process log - I read about the ComboFix program but know that when a user guide warns not try something on one's own, then it's probably good advice to follow. If someone can help I'd appreciate it.
