Norton Antivirus Quarantine

by ultralight / August 20, 2005 8:41 PM PDT

I was looking at the Quarantine log and in the backup part, there is a item that is Trojan.ToosoJ. and it came in on 7/7/05. I did not put it in there, and do not remember seeing anthing showing when I did a scan ever on this program.

Question is can I go ahead and on the top menu click on delete item, and this is going to be gone from my computer?

Am I understanding this that the trojan tried to come through but Norton put it in the backup Quarantine?

thanks

Thanks for the help I will go and delete it.

After I posted the last question I went in to look at my start up. There are two items there that I do not know what they are for. Could you help me to find out what they are, or tell me how to get rid of them if I do not need them.

1.) spoolsu.exe
2.) CCapp.exe

Thanks for your help I shall go and delete the trojan thing right now

Thanks again.

The same

Bleeping Computer has the same entry of ccApp.exe http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/ccApp.exe-740.html
CastleCops and BleepingComputer says:
Name: ccApp
Filename: ccApp.exe
The above is correct and valid.

The http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/ccApp.exe-7901.html is correct. It is not a valid ccApp.exe because its name is Norton Auto-Protect

Name: Norton Auto-Protect
Filename: ccApp.exe

The valid ccApp.exe do not use the name Norton Auto-Protect as Startup item. Users of Norton Antivirus can verify this by typing MSCONFIG in the Run box then click Startup tab. Locate in the startup item and it is written as ccApp.exe as the name instead of Norton Auto-Protect.

ccapp.exe The True Facts Inside =D

There has always been discussion about the file ccapp.exe in the startup folder. If you have never had a threat in your system, you dont need to worry about it. However, if you want to be sure of what it is, you should do: START > RUN > regedit > Hit OK

After that, navigate to the following key "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"

Once in there, you will be able to view root directories, and where the file is. You then can delete any malicious looking ones, to delete it from the startup menu is MsConfig.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
