What was your friend drinking? ;)
Melati, never heard such a thing and do not believe it.
It seems that he has the reason....
I just went to his place and this is what see...
Spybot running, go to Tools (advance mode), click System startup .... in this windows I see a list of several HK_LM Run .... --- some of them are known adware/spyware
He run Check for problem, and surely he found a few of them, then he Fix it.
Restart the pc, run spybot again.. and go to the system startup, and the list has changed (no more known adware/spyware entry as previously listed)
Now he go to control panel and changed the other user account to administrator level.
Run spybot, look into system startup... GUESS What... the known adware/spyware are listed... then he check for problem.. fix it.. and restart...
Look again in both account (administrator and user account) .. its cleaned..
I guess I have to do it his way, to be sure...
Enjoy your weekend...
(NT) Melati, thanks for update... enjoy your weekend also!
I tried his way and its true...
I also see some variation on the HK_LM run list, on each users (tools, systems startup) -
But I guess this is due to different application or setting for each user.
Just a note for first installation of spybot sd... after you installed, change all users to administrator then run spybot sd and immunized on every users account, make any changes necessary (such as running Tea timer etc.) then change it back to limited account.
I hope the above note can help anyone that might need it.
Please forgive and correct me if I'm wrong...
Melati, I've Never Had That Problem..As Long As...
...I ran Spybot as an administrator log in. When running as an administrator, Spybot should find ALL problem files and registry entries.
Hope this helps.
Re: Melati, I've Never Had That Problem..As Long As...
Thank you for your information, but from now on, I'll run spybot and/or adaware on every users account I have, because I've seen it happened..
