a few days ago i was on my old windows xp computer and i ran the following programs just to check it was in good health.
MiniToolBox.exe (found nothing)
JRT.exe (found nothing)
AdwCleaner.exe (found nothing but the setting for google as my default search engine)
tdsskiller.exe (found nothing)
rkill.exe( found two "things")
norton antivirus(found nothing)
the two things found were HWDeviceService.exe and ouc.exe, respectively in folders
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\DatacardService\
C;\Documents and settings\Administrator\Application Data\\T-Mobile Internet Manager\
both were shown as terminated processes but rkill found no windows services to stop, no registry issues, no miscellaneous issues, no windows service integrity issues and no missing digital signatures. i navigated to the files of the processes it terminated and scanned both with norton and mbam which both turned up no results, norton even said that the files were considered trustworthy by large numbers of norton users. does this just mean rkill is being heavy handed (it has a short comment in the log after each process terminated calling HWDeviceService.exe an [AU-HEUR] and calling ouc.exe a [UP-HEUR] ) or are the two files/processes dangerous? by viewing their properties ouc.exe shows as being created on 8th april 2013 and modified 31 december 2009, HwDeviceService.exe shows as being created and modified 16th november 2010. from memory i am sure i have been seeing those processes in task manager for years, why only a detection by one program now? and i do use a t-mobile usb mobile broadband device on that machine so such names no not strike be as being too weird. i can post the log in question but as far as i can tell the text here summarizes everything in it and more, also posting that log would take a while as i will need to connect the old computer to do so.
