I just read the description below from the Anti-virus resources. (I hope I am posting my question in the correct discussion location).
"Windows Utilities Resources
This file is modify Windows 2000 and XP services.
In order to see all the services on your computer type:
This will show a three columns. The first column is the name of the service, and the name we will use with the rest of the following commands. The next column is the description, and the third column is the status of the service.
In order to delete a service that does not belong, first stop it by typing:
modservices stop servicename
modservices delete servicename
If you have any questions, please feel free to comment in the Discussion section."
I am currently on the university campus and downloaded this file to my flash drive. When I attempted to unzip it, I got a warning from the Symantec's Anti-Virus Auto Protect that it cleaned 2 hack tools by deletion . Further, when I scanned my flash drive with Symantec, it found another hack tool which it removed by deletion. Now, I could not open the Zip file for the program, probably because it was now empty. Just to make sure that the Hack tools were indeed from modservices, I downloaded the program again to my flash drive and unzipped it. I received the same Autoprotect message as before.
Will ZoneAlarm do the same thing if I attempt to open this file? Is this tool safe? I have some services that shouldn't be on my computer, and I thought this tool might be a way to remove them in addition to showing me ALL the services on my computer. I not going to try alter anything with it on my own at this point though. I might wreck something.
