What is System Security Center?

by JJ / May 24, 2006 11:21 AM PDT

What is System Security Center? It has programs like System Doctor 2006, Win Antivirus Pro 2006, Win AntiSpyware 2006, Security Monitor. Is it a Microsoft product or Spyware?

You have the right subject. Now I need to find a way to remove it. I tried all those things with no success. Thanks any way.

Once again here are the programs in question: What is System Security Center? It has programs like System Doctor 2006, Win Antivirus Pro 2006, Win AntiSpyware 2006, Security Monitor. Is it a Microsoft product or Spyware? If you mean operating system I am running Windows XP Home. Grif Thomas understood me but he tried his best but in his link it looks like Spyware. I was unable to remove it.

JJ.. You are asking what it is...

in Viruses & Security. A half hour after posting this, you're asking how to get rid of it in Computer Help.

What is it you wish to do? Find out what it is.. or get rid of it. Since you posted at Computer Help, it might be best to continue to let them help you.

If you are having a malware issue, we will need to know a great deal more information. I for one, am confused as to what your problem is and what you'd like to accomplish.

Is this the Security Center you are referring to?
by Carol~ Moderator / May 24, 2006 1:14 PM PDT

You said you're having similar problems. Have a look and see if any of it looks familiar. Is this what you were referring to when you mentioned the Security Center? If not, post back and let us know specifically what your situation is, as opposed to someone else's.

If so, and you feel you're unable to remove this yourself, it might be easier to post a Hijack This log. See a prior post of mine for further instructions. Kindly note, as of late, these fixes have changed on a regular basis.

Any questions, feel free to post back.

Good luck..

Yes. That's it. I followed the instructions on that kink but it is still there.

JJ.. That sure was quick! If you followed the directions..

to a ''T'', it sounds like you may have to post a HJT log and have someone help you with it. I know Smitfraud updated it's version to "2.46" just yesterday. I don't see it posted yet. Perhaps this is why you were unsuccessful, but I'm kinda doubting it. If you read my post to Brian, I said the following:

If you're still getting warnings that you're infected, or you feel you are having problems with the instructions and would like help, you can post a HijackThis log. The good folks at these forums are patient, and they will walk you through it. You too will have to practice some patience, if they don't get back to you right away. They are busy, but they will get back to you! As noted below, we do not analyze these logs at CNET.

Good luck JJ..

This has been copied from our standard instructions here at CNET:

FYI - PLEASE do NOT post any HJT logs in this forum !
HJT is a very powerful tool and only advanced users should use it.

Pls. post your HJT logs in one of the following HJT forums:

- http://castlecops.com/f67-Hijackthis_Spyware_Viruses_Worms_Trojans_Oh_My.html
- http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showforum=18
- http://forums.subratam.org/index.php?showforum=7

Attention: You have to register to be able to post your HJT log !!

HijackThis download locations:

It is important that you run HijackThis.exe in its own folder so the backup files that HijackThis creates will not be accidentally deleted.

Open 'My Computer', then double-click to open C:\ (or the drive letter that your Windows is installed on)
In the menu bar, click File-->New-->Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to ''HJT'' or ''HijackThis''. Now you have C:\HJT\ or C:\HijackThis\ folder. Put your HijackThis.exe there, and double click to run it.

Click 'Scan' button. Click 'Save log' button. Save the 'hijackthis.log' in your desktop. Copy and paste the content of 'hijackthis.log' and post the log file in any forums that offers HijackThis analysis.

Most of what it lists will be harmless, so do not fix anything yet.

BEFORE you post your HJT log - it would be appreciated if you would :

Download and install the following programs, If they're not on your computer, yet:
- AdAware SE : http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/
- Spybot 1.4: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html
- CCleaner: http://www.ccleaner.com/ccdownload.php
Download CWShredder: http://www.intermute.com/products/cwshredder.html
and put it in it's own folder, f.e. 'C:\CWShredder' or C:\Program Files\CWShredder'
- Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta:

Pls. be PATIENT - For those of you looking for assistance with HJT logs, please be patient. The experts are really swamped with requests to have logs reviewed etc. If they do not get with you immediately it only means they are helping someone else. Remember they do this free of charge and in their spare time so please be patient.

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?
