hello

i need some help.. i recently installed anti-virus software (NTL netguard) i got of my ISP (NTL), since then i get virus alerts sayin that i have following 2 viruses on my machine:

W32/Behavior:SelfStarterInternetTrojan!Maximus
in D:\PROGRAM FILES\SYMANTEC\LIVEUPDATE\ALUSCHEDULERSVC.EXE


W32/Rootkit-Backdoor-based!Maximus
in D:\PROGRA~1\SYNCRO~1\POS\H2O\EMU.DLL

i went through http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/ installed Ad Aware, Spybot and Zone Lab and deleted everything that was malicious, those 2 viruses though still show up..

i also have norton anti virus software running, is it ok to have 2 anti virus softwares? norton is just valid for another 3 weeks and then im using NTL Netguard only.

btw, norton didnt detect either of these viruses..

Can anybody help me to get them out of my machine?

thank you

Hello bruder and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

Most ISP's get their security software from an outside vendor. I do not know who provides NTL with their package. NTL's website did not state where it comes from. Both of the files listed by the NTL package are false positives. One is for Symantec LiveUpdate and the other is for Cubase. Neither are malicious.

I would suggest keeping an eye on what this software is flagging as infections and do not simply take it for granted that what it is saying is true. If it continues to flag legitimate files as infected files then consider replacing it with a different package.

Cheers.

Hi bruder. It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to look into other alternatives. If you do not want to keep Norton there are some good free alternative anti-virus programs available. Here are a couple to check out (I have used each to test and use the Avast program on my main computer):Cheers.

Hi bruder. Yes it would. I use either Avast or AVG and Kerios or ZoneAlarm (both also free) on all of my machines. You still have to be smart about your web surfing and email habits but I have never had any problems with a combination of 1 of those anti-virus and 1 of those firewalls.

Cheers.
