Rebooted and have just started with a timer set for 15 minutes to see if runs correctly this time. Was informed this could mean major damage to the machine and to just run an online ESET scan but got your advice first so lets hope it works


**update** rebooted and reran and done in less then 15 minutes!! Hopefully this gets me closer to an end result.


Thanks again so much for your help!!

I am a newcomer.

I don't know about "Purity Check" and "LOP Check".
What are they or where can I find the details of them.

Many thanks in advance.

What Is Lop?
LOP is adware, plain and simple. While it's creators are a legitimate company creating legitimate software,
the effects of Lop can be devastating to your system. It is a pay per click service like many others out there.
Purity.
Purity is similar adware as it causes popups and advertising to be shown.

Hi noknojon,

Thank for your detailed description. I now have a more clear vision about them. Many thanks.
But, LOP seems an abbr., would you tell me what is its real name.

Besides, knowing that you are "Geek in Training", I am very interest whether it is really hard on your study. How many hours per week are you using for it? How many teacher follow your study? How long would you plan to finish your study? After you are graduated, how many hours per week would you like to service this community?

Too many question ..... sorry .....

The above link is to Symantic (Norton) site that gives some more details for you to look at, Re LOP / adware infections.
Below is only my personal views. Each person has differing views and time to spend on study (I'm not real good, just average at this time).

I am very interest whether it is really hard on your study.

This depends on how much you already know about malware and its actions towards your system, plus how much time you wish to devote to the School.

How many teacher follow your study?

One main teacher per Practice log. (I am trying to do PL #5 slowly :unsure: ) But there is a group of teachers that try to help as you progress.

How long would you plan to finish your study?

Every person is not the same. If you already know about malware and presentation of your posts, it is quicker (but it gets harder as you progress).

After you are graduated, how many hours per week would you like to service this community?

That depends on the teachers and if they think I will be good at assisting people.
But I would like to be around for a while :)

I hope this gives you a vague idea of, at least, my views.

Thank You -

By way of Edit -
You can ask many of these questions in the General Forum Area -

Hello hkQQ2010,

Further to noknojon's well constructed comments.

These links might be of interest to you as well:

http://www.spamlaws....e-lop-type.html

http://www.pandasecu...information/Lop

I don't know where the name LOP came from (someone else may answer that) although it might have something to do with the address of the URL it connected to in it's early days. :)

Hi emeraldnzl -
I am having problems with the 2 links you left ? ?
Thank you for adding these extras to the topic as you will be more aware of these questions than I am.
I am not 100% sure of all these answers, but I just give my own version as I see it.

The below quotes are from OldTimer -
Re; Lop Check

Any O4 running from the Application Data folder where files and folder names are completely random and make no sense are likely to be LOP.
A LOP filter is included to filter out known good folders during the LOP scan

Re; Purity Check

Purity check is a simple scan with no output if nothing is found. the Purity infection has been quite consistent over the years and has a
set list of folders it creates in set locations. OTL checks all of the locations for all of the folders and only reports on any found items.


A bit more information that shows Lop can be a 'Drive by' infection.
Lop.com ; Lop is a program that is installed. It will add links to your favorites.
Also see this link - http://www.richardpu...g.com/help.html

Thank You Again -
I have already looked at Purity in my tests but not yet Lop infections.
I am now also interested in researching this further for my own personal information.

I am now also interested in researching this further for my own personal information.

But I have one more question. How do you test Purity infestions? Does it mean that you intentionally make your PC infected with Purity and see how it works and how to remove it.
