Hello...I'm new to this site...was sent over by WorldStart.com members. Have just downloadedMalwarebytes: Anti-Malware.  Was told to download this: http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.scr .   I downloaded the .exe file which is on my PC in C:Programs file.  I didn't see sUBs/dds,scr am I missing something here?

 

Thanks.

 

Admin Edit:  If you have the .exe file downloaded, then run it.  The DDS.scr file is just an alternate download of DDS.  Be sure to post the log in the correct forum, not here - Hamluis.

Your link doesn't work, I get 404 - Not Found.

 

What program is this link for?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

OK thanks...where would I post it? Since the DDS is what I'm looking for, can I download, install, run & scan w/o uninstalling the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware?  I ran the scan, but it didn't take care of my problem.  The program was: Tech Fix Now, which I now know was out of India - iow - a scam.

The DDS file...is not supposed to "fix" anything....it's a tool for gathering information which will assist the persons trying to help you in the forum dc3 linkded to above...to assess your system.  If you follow Dan's suggestion and post the log in the forum indicated...someone will try to assist you.
