Looking for Files/Ad-Mal-Spywar/Virus/Trojan Directory

by remylza / August 15, 2004 12:13 PM PDT

HI, I'm hoping someone on here can help me. A few months ago my PC was hijacked by tons of Spyware/Malware and a few Trojans. Fortunately, I found the help I needed to remove everything and restore my PC. Along the way, I found a site that listed almost every valid program file by name as well as every Spy-Ad-Malware/Virus/Trojan file that has been reported and this site was constantly updating to keep current with the bad stuff out there. I found it to be helpful as I had some programs working in the background that I thought were valid and good and turns our they weren't since like only one letter was different or capitalized.

The website that listed these did them in alpha order as well as color coded and I was wondering if anyone knows of it? I am afraid I deleted or lost it in my favorites somehow over the last few months. I need the list/site again since my PC is starting to act weird on me since I switched from Dial-Up to Cable.

Any help would be super appreciated!
