I spotted these after a MBAM scan:-
" Spigot A " this is crapware that is bundled with YTD
Claims to be just another (annoying) Toolbar ..... see here :-
also , in the same scan ; "OpenCandy" ..... bundled with IMG Burn
..... OpenCandy seems to be all over the place these days
There is some debate about it actually being Malware ..... more of a nuisance really.
I let MBAM quarantine both of them ( they were only found in the set-up files , not the applications )
The Golden Rule for me ( when installing Freeware ) is to ALWAYS choose "Custom Install"
and look out carefully for any pre-checked boxes.
DO NOT just go clicking away on "Next" buttons.
I spotted something on Major Geeks recently which claims to automatically "uncheck" any
I haven't tried it out yet , but I wonder if it might just be a sneaky way of slipping some
OTHER crapware into your system.
Call me cynical , if you will ..... but nothing is really " free " !!
But anyway ,neither of these caused any issues on my W7 Laptop and I have been using
both bits of software for many months.
I just wonder why MBAM only picked up on them recently ..... maybe something new in
the MBAM updates ??
I wrote this as a reply to a posting from yesterday but got a message saying I couldn't post it.
I'm guessing it was because the OP had included logs in his post.
If it's a matter of policy on this forum , it's a sensible one !
