Q: Have to activat AVG6 Resident Shield e.g. every time log on

Hi, using XP, AVG free edition 6, ZoneAlarm, and just installed Spybot. Was having this problem before Spybot though. When boot up, AVG's Resident Shield is disabled, so am having to manually correct this every time, trusting that I remember every time. Forgotten once or twice, and viruses in before realised. Don't know what settings/programmes could be knocking AVG skew whiff. Thanks, Cat

Preferred Solution: Have to activat AVG6 Resident Shield e.g. every time log on

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Okay. I originally had Windows Defender and I added Avast because Vista only has the spyware protection. Then, I got AVG Spyware free because I don't like Defender.

I also grabbed AVG free AV.

Now, all 3 of these programs (AVG AV, AVG AS, and Avast AV) all have realtime scanners. Right now I have only Avast realtime on because of the known collision issues with all AV programs.

My question is, which is the best to be running? I have avast on because that's the one i thought was the best. Is AVG AV or AVG AS better to have on?

If AVG is better than avast (realtime scanners) is it ok to have the AS and AV realtime protections on?

thanks for any and all help.

Independent comparatives of Anti-virus Softwareclick on the "Comparatives" link on the leftComparison of Anti-virus ScannersTopTen Review: 2007 Anti-virus SoftwareThese types of comparative testing results will vary depending on who is doing the testing, what they are testing for, what versions of anti-virus software is being tested, etc. There are no universally predefined set of standards/criteria for testing and each test will yield different results. Thus, you need to look for detailed information about how the tests were conducted, the procedures used, and data results. Then you have to consider the features offered by each anti-virus program, the amount of resources utilized and how it may affect system performance. Another factor to keep in mind is whether you want use a paid for product or free alternative.Using more than one anti-virus program is not advisable regardless if the second is used as a stand-alone on demand scanner. Even when one of them is disabled, it can affect the other. Issues can arise when the active anti-virus detects the non-active one's definitions or quarantined files. The primary concern with using more than one anti-virus program is due to conflicts that can arise when both are running in real-time mode simultaneously. Anti-virus software components insert themselves into the operating systems core and using more than one can cause instability, crash your computer, slow performance and waste system resources.

My ad-watch monitoring detects a registry change so i know something is happening... after i activate it again the resident shield runs its icon in the task bar as it should be... why does the email scanner keep shutting down and then stop resident shield running? thanx

Ignored a problem I started getting last nite (I was tired). Wife clicked it today, PC no longer boots, even thru safe mode. The first thing I remember seeing was something that looked like it was part of my free AVG program, I think it was entitled "resident shield". It kept listing problems, all the same one, I think it was trojan_J...... can't remember the whole file name. I'm typing this from a laptop, it's the desktop that's got the issue. The machine OS is Windows XP, service pack two I believe.I recall back in the day we had boot discs, I would try one but I'm not even sure how to make one these days. Should I go start looking for my Windows disc now?Any help would be greatly appreciated!BTW, got that malware from pdga.com , a disc (frisbee) golf website. These virus's/trojans/whatever are everywhere anymore.Well, after 40 plus hits, doubt I'll be able to do it thru here, but I'll continue to check back a few times during the next 24 hrs. I'll prolly take it in in the next day or so, and if it's not a hardware issue, maybe just have it formatted and start over, there's nothing major on there.

Good evening. Take a trip to this webpage for download links and instructions for running Combofix by sUBs: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix * When prompted to save Combofix, change the filename BEFORE saving it - any name will do, as long as it has .exe at the end. Please be aware that this tool may require the PC to be rebooted so close any programs you have open before you start. When CF has finished, it will produce a log - C:\ComboFix.txt - copy and paste Let me know how the PC is behaving.* There are two points to note from the instructions page:1) The Recovery Console.It is recommended that you install this as, in certain circumstances, it may be the difference between a successful repair and a reformat. If you are uncertain as to whether or not you already have the Recovery Console installed, simply run CF and it will prompt you if it does not detect it.CF will complete some, but not all, of it's removal tasks without the installation of the Console, so you are free to choose whether you want to complete this step, but it is in your interests to do so.2) Disabling your Anti-Virus.CF has been the victim of false-positive detections on occasion and a resident AV may incorrectly identify and delete part of the tool which won't do it much good. If you don't disable your AV, you may not get the results you hoped for!

Actually, I have a twofold problem that I think is related. Several times a day I get an AVG Resident Shield warning that says, "Warning Found tracking cookie.2o7" or with other extensions such as .247realmedia, .Revsci, .Realmedia, .Serving-sys, .Tribalfusion, .Questionmarket or .Overture. The "Path to file" is always the same, C:\Documents and Settings\Tom\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\4m2lsrtw.default\cookies.sqlite. This started after I had the computer cleaned of a virus not too far back. The second part of my problem is that sites that I have to log on to are not always retaining my information even when I have "remember me" checked. The baffling part is that it happens intermittently, sometimes I have to log in two or 3 times in a row and then the same site might "remember me" the next few times I go to it. Is there some setting that needs to be changed or do I have another problem? For what it's worth, the computer is running fine and my daily AVG scan finds no infections. However, those cookie warnings do end up in the virus vault. Spybot tells me I have no threats, too.

Thanks again,

Tom

Hi,
I am sending this from my laptop because it is my PC that is infected by this Resident Shield Alert.
I have tried various antispayware programmes and antivirus programmes to get rid of this virus, all to no avail!
The resident shield alert tells me that I have a Trojan Horse Downloader.VB.7.Y and the infected file is C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\winupd
Furthermore, after re-booting my desktop now has a white background with "Active Desktop Recovery" superimposed on it. Clicking on 'restore my active desktop' does nothing so I assume it is all part of the virus.
Please can you help me remove this virus.
Many thanks in anticipation

I recently download the new Spybot 1.3 rc 4. I am running the Resident Shield. I guess it is not like SpywareBlaster which doesn't have to be in the system tray to be running.

What I am asking is does it (RS) have to be in the system tray to be active?
 

A:Spybot Resident Shield

If you are referring to the RS which prevents most spyware programs that lurk on websites (BlueMountain on www.bluemountain.com, Advertising, Inc. on www.msn.com and www.hotmail.com, etc.) then no, Spybot S&D does not have to be running, but you have to have the Resident Shield option activated. I believe that it is not activated by default.

I've upgraded my SS&D to the final-product version of 1.3, and it's been a while since I had RC4, so it may or may not have the TeaTimer RS which alerts you when your registry changes. For TeaTimer, it does need to be running to work, but I don't like TeaTimer and how much memory it needs to run, so I don't really recommend having it running.

Hope this helps.

When I run Malwarebytes, it doesn't detect an infection.Below are the 2 pop-ups that keep on showing up. Below I will attach the logs. Thanks in advance!

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top o...

Resident Shield alert is telling me I have Multiple threats detected, however I can't move it to a vault. Malwarebytes' Anti Malware doesn't find these possible infections.

Hello,

I'm trying to scan and fix someone else's computer. I'm running a full malwarebytes scan right now and it already says that 11 files are infected. During the scan, a popup came up that says Resident Shield Alert Accessed Accessed file is infected, etc... A quick google search indicates that this is fake and a sign of infection. (I think this popup had come up earlier, hence my being asked to look at the computer.) Apparently this started when the person connected a flash drive.
I thought I would go ahead and post on this site while waiting for the scan to finish. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!

Since yesterday evening my Eee PC (Windows XP) has had popups calling themselves "Resident Shield Alert" and telling me I have infected files, trojans and all sorts of things. However from what I can find online, the villain of the piece is actually the program making the popups, rather than what they're purporting to have found. If I ignore it or if I click it, it performs a fake scan and displays its results. Screen print available if needed, but I have a feeling that you guys have probably seen this one a thousand times.

Additionally I've noticed this morning that random words in websites texts are being double-underlined and turned into links, hovering over them with my mouse opens tiny advert windows that may or may not even be connected to the highlighted word. Obviously, I haven't clicked any of these words because I'm not a complete fool, I'm only fool enough to get myself into this situation, lol.

I've run Trendmicro's Housecall and Spybot - S&D, but neither of them found anything. While searching online I found a manual removal involving the copy/pasting of the atapi driver, but that action seemed to prove fruitless too.

Also, it would appear that on Start Up my Windows Firewall is being disabled, although I don't know if that's being caused by whatever is infecting my system or the AVG 9.0.725 with a firewall that is also enabled.

Hi, hoping you can help.

I recently got several "fake" dialogs popping up with the title of "Resident Shield Alert". I see this alert is linked to the "Virus Scanner" virus/trojan although the screen shots of that virus did not match what I was seeing. Anyway, the popups stated I had some viruses and, of course, wants me to use "Resident Shield" to clean them. I recognized it as a trojan so I left them alone and immediately ran Malwarebytes. I noticed that although I could run Malwarebytes, it would not let me update it to the latest version. I could also not open Task Manager. I got "Your administrator has disabled this functionality".

Malwarebytes finished and said it cleaned some entries (sorry, I don't remember what they were) and had me reboot. Upon rebooting, still could not access Task Manager and a Resident Shield Alert popped up again.

I rebooted to Safe Mode and ran Malwarebytes in Administrator mode. Again, said it cleaned up the machine. I noted a "hijack.taskmanager" in the list. It said it cleaned them and to reboot. This time, when I rebooted and ran Malwarebytes again, it found no problems. However, a dialog appeared that said it could not find "fcadlot.dll". Just to be sure, I ran Microsoft Live Scanner. It found 10 items but could not remove them.

Thus, I unplugged the network cable to prevent any (more) data from being sent out and came here. I ran the DDS too... Read more

Hi,
I opened an email apparently from FED EX, saying it was having problems delivering a parcel. As soon as I opened it, my AVG resident shield started going crazy, telling me I had a virus in win 32 patched, it says the object is white listed.

I have since scanned the computer with AVG and found 2 viruses which were successfully deleted. My computer seems ( at present) to be fine, however the resident shield hasn't stopped, it's as if I have hundreds of viruses.

I am not very computer literate so I'm desperate for help.

Someone downloaded AVG (the free version) on my desktop. I just upgraded to a quad core and am not getting tons of pop-ups. The resident shield alert says multiple threat detection. The first one is moved to virus protection and the 2nd one says infected, but when I press "Remove selected infections," or "Remove all unhealed infections," it says, "Some files cannot be healed." I tried to install pop-up popper (Bayden), but that is not working either.

So, I got infected with some nasty spyware/malware/trojans. I ran through the guide of using Rkill & MalwareBytes Anti-Malware program and it caught some things (see attachment). I later ran it again and it didn't seem to catch anything (again, see attachment for the log), so I thought everything was fine. However, this morning I started getting "Resident Shield alert" messages from AVG telling me I have a couple trojans on my computer. I'm suspecting this is a hi-jacked AVG message I'm getting.So, I tried to go through the guidelines for posting here but I couldn't get past the GMER Log step (tried twice--keep getting blue-screen of death flashed and my computer suddenly started rebooting in the middle of the scan).

I guess now that just about every virus or trojan detected by AVG is a generic something or other. Before I get to the point, here's a little history:

Aug 27, 2008: Resident shield detects Trojan Horse Downloader.ZLOB.AAXQ. File name is Dc3.exe, and another Dc4.exe. Resident shield found them in the C:\RECYLCER... portion of the HDD. Moved to virus vault.

Oct 2, 2008: Resident shield detects Trojan Horse Downloader.ZLOB.ABBY. File name is Dc3.exe. Again, in C:\RECYLCER..

July 27, 2009: Resident shield detects Trojan Horse Generic14 AWH. File name is Dc13.exe, once again, in C:\RECYCLER.

In all 3 cases, after moving the so-called files (which never existed anywhere else besides AVG's interface) to the vault, immediately or soon thereafter, I get the same alert from AVG, only the "file" is located in the system volume information, system restore portion of the HDD. The only way to stop the alert has been to delete ALL restore points.

These are the only virus alerts I have had since 1994, and the file doesn't exist, never did, and they are all in locked portions of the HDD that cannot be scanned using a regular full system scan. It's funny that I get 3 similar virus alerts by AVG when It took from 1994 to 2009 for me to collect 3 virus alerts from any program, and those 3 were from files I had just downloaded or was in the process of downloading.

Hello Mugambodeva, It seems strange that none of your scanners are picking it up but your resident protection is
Unless it is your heuristics scan (in other words it is not a known definition, but displaying the behaviour one.)

To be on the safe side i would download Malwarebytes free scanner, update it & run a scan. Malwarebytes has a high detection rate of Polymorphic malware & will play nicely with the security apps you already have.

If it does detect anything can you please post back your results. (For my own curiositys sake as well as it may help others)

Best wishes

I have a nasty virus that we cannot remove. I have been told this might be a "flower" that is deep in the computer, we do a temporary fix, and then it shows itself again.

When I start the computer I get a pop-up that says "Resident Shield Alert". It then says "Multiple threat detection". It wants me to try removing two files called "Trojan Horse Dropper.generic2".

When I run a scan with our Malware program, it doesn't find anything. But this happens every time that I start the computer.

It also won't let me shut down unless I push the power button.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

A:Resident Shield Alert(fake avg??)

All scanning tools are susceptible to glitches, bugs and false positive detections from time to time, especially if the scanner uses heuristic analysis technology. Heuristics is the ability of a scanning program to detect possible new variants of malware before the vendor can get samples and update the program's definitions for detection. Heuristics uses non-specific detection methods to find new or unknown malware which allows the anti-virus to detect and stop if before doing any harm to your system. The disadvantage to using heuristics is that it is not as reliable as signature-based detection (blacklisting) and can potentially increase the chances that a non-malicious program is flagged as suspicious or infected. If that is the case, then you can restore the file and add it to the exclusion or ignore list. Anytime you suspect a detection to be a False positive, get a second opinion by submitting the file to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com.In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit [upload] it for scanning/analysis.If it is a false positive, then you should contact and advise the vendor that their program is being detected as a threat. In many cases they will work with the anti-virus techs in an attempt to resolve the detection. Most anti-virus vendors have instructions for file submissions posted on their web sites. Once a file is received, a technician can examine it in more detail and provide a r... Read more

Hello,Any help would be appreciated on the following two issues.1. Yesterday I caught a virus called "XP Anti Spyware 2010". I have removed this using SpyBot and MalwareBytes. Could you advise if it would be definitely removed? I believe it is but I don't want to use internet banking until I'm 100% sure.2. Today I got another virus which is calling itself "Resident Shield Alert". It looks like a AVG pop up (please note I do not have the whole virus which looks similar to AVG, what I have is only a pop up window). The window pops up and reports I have a trojan or virus or cookie of some sort but the file name of the infection is always just one of my anti virus programs. It usually only opens when I open a virus scanner but other times it doesn't. I have tried turning off the Shield Alert in AVG but then Windows security centre tells me I have no virus protection when I have several others.. ?I have scanned my computer many times in both normal and Safe Mode using the follow free programs : Spybot, AVG, MalwareBytes and Advanced System Care. All programs show no infections after completion except ASC which only picks up a couple of cookies. I'm not sure what to do next. Please help with any advice and could you let me know how dangerous it is (again, for banking reasons - I'm becoming neurotic). I'm using Windows XP (2003 I think) on a Compaq laptop - again let know if any more specifics are required ASAP. Also I can provide a screen... Read more

A:Virus - Resident Shield Alert - Please help.

Ok. Let's address these one at a time. 1. Xp Antispyware 2010. Can you please post the results of your Malwarebytes log so we can be certain it has been fully removed from your computer.2. The Resident Shield Alert that you are receiving is your AVG Antivirus doing exactly what it is supposed to. Anytime it finds a suspicious file ( virus, spyware, malware, etc. ) it is supposed to pop like that and ask you what you would like to do with it. If you look at the process names in the lower potion of your screen caps, you will see that in the first one you were scanning with Spybot S&D. In the second screen cap you were running Ad-Aware. As each of these programs inspected your files, AVG is also scanning the same file at the same time. Hence the reason the scans take some time. Once you post your Malwarebytes log, we may have you run a few other scans to be sure things are clean and safe.

I have a Toshiba laptop with XP Home.

A window keeps popping up that says Antivir Resident Shield on top and claims a virus was detected. It has a shield that looks somewhat like Windows in 4 color.

Several pop ups keep occurring over and over and this results in the rest of the screen being shaded so I cannot do anything.

Even if I manage to get the AVG scan begun, it fails. I cannot get on the internet.

It keeps adding red shields with an X in the center on the task bar.

One says Warning Active virus detected, another says application cannot be executed. The file ...... is infected. (These keep changing.)
And then asks Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?
I tried to run C Cleaner, my AVG program, and a spyware program, but it cuts them all off.

Can anyone tell me how I can get at this to remove it? Thank you.

A:Question About Java And Ewido's Resident Shield

The Java home page show the latest to be 6. http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jspAbout Java... Java is a general purpose programming language with a number of features that make the language well suited for use on the World Wide Web. Small Java applications are called Java applets and can be downloaded from a Web server and run on your computer by a Java-compatible Web browser, such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer. (Thank you webopedia)I'm not sure what they are referring to when they suggest "to leave it unchecked", as I understand it the resident shield is already active upon installation.
