sudden strange startup window

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
After rebooting, I am getting a notepad window on top of the
desktop which says

[.ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21787

I also notice that now, suddenly, in msconfig, there is
something  called   desktop.ini  in startup - this was never
there before - that I'm sure of.

The most recent thing I installed was Mozy backup, but I've
stopped it from running at startup both in services and in
msconfig.contact.

I also installed a program connected to an online system
that notifies the BB when I'm online and available for
contact.

Any idea(s) what this might refer to?

BTW, I'm running NOD32 and SuperAntiSpyware and nothing
notable has shown up there.

TIA

Louise

Re: sudden strange startup window

You installed and used BugHunter. That's twice now you found a bug in
Bughunter. Dustin is a former hacker/virus writer so the scripts he uses are
suspicious. The problem is that "desktop.ini" files may contain CLSID
references to arbitrary executables in the "[.ShellClassInfo]" section. This
can be exploited to execute arbitrary files with another user's privileges.
Bug hunter uses this exploit when scanning. I suggest you use Startup CPL
http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml to remove that window from starting on
every boot. The desktop.ini file is not dangerous and if you don't want to
see it the do a search for that file on your hard drive and delete all that
it finds, those files will be moved to the recycle bin. After a week of so
you can empty the bin. Those files are normally hidden and will be recreated
as need with the correct hidden attribute when needed.
You might want to let Dustin know his program is buggy.

Re: sudden strange startup window

Louise, pay no attention to this thieving fool......I ran BugHunter
myself and have no "desktop.ini" in my Startup.

He is just ticked off because Dustin exposed the flaws in his stolen
program (Spyerase).  And as a former (and I stress FORMER) virus writer,
I think Dustin would have way more smarts than Dickhead PC. Butts.

In fact, most of the people on this or any other security ng have way
more smarts than Butts.  Not to forget scruples and morals.

Re: sudden strange startup window

Your spyerase program is a garbled together patch job of other people's
work. It doesn't do everything you've said, either. No backups, no
renaming, just deletion and possibly replace if you can find what you
call a clean backup. I've done a silly test with your program. I made it
look for a file it thought was bad, due to your stupid method of
detection (filenames only) and guess what? It replaced the "bad" file
with a byte for byte duplicate it thinks is clean, simply because of the
folder in which it found the copy!
unquote......

'nuff said, bitch.

Re: sudden strange startup window

Oh that's right you have no technical skills. Dustin modified my program
then complains that it does not work. Over 500 downloads of spyerase and not
one person has said it does not work except trolls. See my feedback here I
have about 10 more waiting for approval.

Re: sudden strange startup window

I think 20 years working in the criminal law field gives me an advantage
when recognizing thieves and liars.  And we dealt with a lot of mental
misfits as well.  You fit all the categories.  Hell, you are not even
sure if you are male or female!!  Psychopathic tendencies??  No, just a
low IQ and a penchant for attention.

HF......and Dustin didn't modify your "program"......it was a paste and
copy patch job.

Re: sudden strange startup window

You mean you and everybody in this group don't know if I am male or female.
I know for a fact that I am female. Trolls have screwed with your mind. 20
years in the criminal law field? Maybe you can tell everyone how to sue me
because they can't seem to figure it out. Spyerase works.

Re: sudden strange startup window


I haven't been actively following this thread but wanted to contribute
that Spyerase was something my brain decided to prounounce as
"Spyarse."  Appropriate for something backed (ahem) by pcbutts right?

At any rate, if it is indeed as excrement a program as others seem to
think, I'd like to nominate "Spyarse" as the monicker by which it is
referred in future posts.  :-)

Let's see if it'll stick....

Funny you would come up with that because I stumbled when trying to
spell it.  Perhaps our collective unconscious minds are attempting to
come up with an *apt name* for anything pcbutts steals....ROFL!!

Why don't you address the issues with your BATCH (as we can't call it a
program) File not actually detecting malware, but only detecting file
names that are suspected as malware?

Why don't you address the fact that if YOU make a mistake in the file
name that you offer no means to recover from the mistake and COULD
render the users computer unbootable?

Why don't you admit that any script kiddie can write batch files, and
it's even easier when you copy them from someone else's work.

Actually, I prefer a Windows desktop right now.  But the iBook is to
my right, and I'm nearly always ssh'd into my internet facing linux
box.

So tell us how you got the idea for Spyarse?

Re: sudden strange startup window

You mean "Spyerase" I write a lot of command line tools not just Spyerase.
You got trolls like Leythos the stalker who is a no-nothing and then Dustin
and Nick who the best they can say about Spyerase is what if? or what could
happen not what did happen because it works and if it ever breaks anything
there is a backup. They still can't explain why Spyerase works on Windows
2000 and the thieves version does not. They don't know my program. You
should not believe anything they say.

You're almost funny buthead - I was being paid to write code in the
70's, did device drivers in the early 80's, and implemented a large
network and computer system setup in the Navy when they had the systems
sitting in boxes for over a year before I joined. I've forgot more than
you'll ever learn kiddo.

Oh, and if you think that we're going to tell you how to fix your BATCH
file, well you're wrong.

You might also see files called Thumbs.db caused by that same bug.
