I have learned that in some cases, if Vista is infected with spyware, Explorer.exe keeps shutting down in loop. I have developed a process to deal with this situation smoothly.

To test the solution, I especially needs as many as possible spywares installed on my system. Really nasty spyware would be the priority ones. I am especially looking for the kind of spyware, that creates randmon file names, and hence may not be removed through scripts like Smitrem or roguefix.

I would be thankful if you can please create a zip file and then send it to me via email, or if you can post a reply with an address to download.

Once I tested my solution on these case scenarious, i would be more than happy to share it here.

thank you in advance for your efforts to infect my system.

Sorry, Salvage, but I'm pretty sure that no members of BC are going to provide links to malware. And, even if they did, I'm pretty sure that the moderators would delete them in a jiffy! Why don't you visit some obvious sites, like "free" whatever, (screensavers is a good one), or something like that?

Good luck with your project!

I woudn't do that if i were you,Salvage sorry but it just not the proper way :thumbsup:
Besides if one posts a link here one can be responsible for so many infections and therefore would receive
punishment for such acts
Its not only the members who visit the topic and become infected but all of the other guest we have
could be innocent victims of malware

Why don't you visit some obvious sites, like "free" whatever, (screensavers is a good one), or something like that

You're just helping him get infected too???
You know,this site is used for the good of computers and how to use them properly so that we can all benefit and learn
Not a malware infecting site for whatever reason
If you are to test malware protection then choose any Anti-Malware product that you can rely,depend and believe on rather than just making yourself infected because not even one Anti-Malware product can guarantee you 100% protection rather than infect your system and bring yourself with all of the frustration if you can't manage to disinfect it

Hey, it's his computer. I didn't provide him with any links. He seems to believe that he can create something that entire teams of professionals, such as the employees of Webroot or Grisoft, cannot. Shoot; I didn't even name any specific sites. I only suggested a category of sites that I thought all but the most inexperienced users already knew to avoid.

I apologize. I certainly didn't want to offend anyone; moderators or members.

Hello Salvage

No, we won't provide active links to any malware because as already mentioned, another member or guest could inadvertantly click on it and become infected.

We do not know your background, knowledge and skill level. While you may be sincere in developing some type of removal tool, this is not the appropriate place to ask how to get infected. Further, if you had advanced knowledge in malware removal you would not have to ask such a question.

I am closing this thread. Should you have any questions please PM me or another moderator.
