Is there an anti-virus website that you can give a URL to that would scan
that site and identify any virus/trojan that the site tries to install?

Not exactly the same thing, but if you use Opera and have "fraud
etc. protection" enabled (default) it will warn you when you try
to go to a site deemed suspicious or outright dangerous. Google
is beginning to do the same. Fubar knows what MS are doing.

It is hard to traverse the entire site but, this is a good start.

Did you notice that right in the most prominent position on that page is
an advertisement for Uniblue.com - the company which Dustin Cook has
advised distributes malware?

That is most interesting. Thanks for posting, Buffalo.

I do not have the technical knowledge to make a considered judgment on
the findings, but it doesn't look good to me!

Further comment welcomed.

OK - *It sucks*! ;)

But, hey!

It was *recommended* by Roy C - the moderator of Annexcafe User2User and
a major player on Mark's BB (and previously on A/C Mainstreet)

Dave - you've not come across TechAngel's web site by chance, have you?


Re: Security Web Site That Identifies Viruses at Target URL?

And Roy C was told by some including me that it was a bad site that was mostly
snake
oil. He also found out the hard way as you will.

I'm not concerned for me - my concern was for my elderly friend who has
already paid and is using the software!

I don't recall you falling out with Roy C, certainly not in my defence!
Do you think it significant that Roy C is tucked up nicely in bed with
Mark (CoyoteV) and Tinkerer?

If you haven't already suggested it, he should get a refund and if they
are unwilling to provide one, contact his credit card company to have
the charges reversed. At the least he has been scammed. At worst, he's
been scammed and software damage has been done to his computer, as we
can't possibly know which registry keys have been altered since he ran
the software. If since installing that program he hasn't made any other
significant system changes or installed new software, I'd recommend he
uninstall it (Revo uninstaller or total uninstall might be of use in
this case); In fact, I'd use one of those before I trusted the uniblue
uninstaller.

Once he's removed the program, I'd recommend he keep revo or total
uninstall for future issues, and use the system restore feature to go
back prior to his installation of said product. That should atleast
revert the registry hives and critical system files if any have been
altered/replaced or removed. As your friend would be using the
unaffected registry, any executables possibly left behind by the
uninstall process would be neutered and no longer pose any potential
threat to the system.

Thank you for the advice, Dustin. I will pass on your comments to
Clive.

Surely there is something that can be done to stop companies like
Uniblue peddle their wares on the Internet?

Have you and or others posting on these groups made any kind of
official complaint about what you term 'Scamware' ?

If the products really do harm, something *should* be done to stop
them.

Maybe there's something I could do to help in this regard?  Advice
welcomed.

You know boater dumb ass, if you'd stop changing your e-mail address I

But actually, bloater dung, it's nice to see you haven't really changed.

I got sticks in my backyard that are smarter than you are.

Shit for brains would be an improvement for you. An upgrade. Sheesh.

I just tested Revo Uninstall and it works great. I had a real mess with
Adobe Reader 9.3.3. Windows XP would not get rid of it. It kept
checking for an update but would neither update or uninstall. Revo
Uninstall swept it away, registry keys and all. I installed Foxit
Reader. Problem solved. I would very much recommend Revo.
