in searching the laptop for .DLL files and typing in the forums alone ive lost 34mb of space
not to mention the search itself led to just about every file on the computer, one i saw in particular was twain._32.dll.mui and that just kind of struck me as odd cause if i were a hacker id probably be creative and label it as such (with the twain part i mean) but its the only DUI file type listed, and weve got 2 keyloggers listed. so far everything is an application extension, shortcut
ive found 2 that are manifest file types, dtu100.manifest and dpll100.dll.manifest then theres one text doc file type labeled virtdisk.dll.vd
mainly im freaking out because i access my bank accounts on this laptop. and just yesterday twice used my debit card online (silly me for not checking up with this earlier)
its been 2 hours on the SASFE run and its still going. hasnt found any more loggers or cookies or bots in 45 minutes but im afraid to cut the search to go head and remove the loggers incase theres more.
I posted an earlier thread about memory shortage on a laptop and i believe i have found the cause, i downloaded SASFE (super antispyware free edition) and its so far found 2 key loggers, and from what i know about keyloggers and from what ive read trying to find a thread relevant to my problem i think its being stored on the laptop instead of being transmitted, (and yes SASFE is still scanning)
now if i remove the keylogger with the SASFE does that remove the file also? and hence free the memory back up?
and if it doesnt i need to know how to locate the file (i havent yet tried just searching for a DLL file like soemone mentioned was used to store what was typed) so i can manually remove it.
and how do i get rid of it if i am unable to manually remove it.
(trying not to be pesky and get all my relevant questions into one thread)
