Well, like many people I have been afflicted by Direct-Revenue's malicious Aurora, and it has attached its nail.exe operation on me. I was just wondering what would happen if I were to just remove it, or simply delete it from my system. I'm afraid to do so because it labels itself as C:/WINDOWS/nail.exe and many times when I have deleted spyware on my old comp it has had even worse effects on my computer.

After Ad-Aware had confirmed my suspicions, I am now conflicted as to whether I should have Ad-Aware remove it, or leave it be and try to live a normal life with it sucking the life force out of my computer like a parasite. Also Ad-Aware for some reason only labels it as a Level 3 threat which gave me reason to think that it wasn't that big of a problem. But currently I am at my wit's end as to find out how to remove this nasty little bugger.

Thanks in advance!

PS: Should I remove the following file which is listed as Malware by Ad-Aware?

In order to assist you, we need to see the log from an Ad-Aware SE 1.06r1 full system scan.

Important Note! Before performing a scan, be sure that you have the most recent definitions file by using WebUpdate. (Click on the Globe icon, Click connect, Click OK, Click Finish.) At this current point * SE1R49 31.05.2005 * is the most recent definition file.

Ad-Aware SE comes preconfigured with default options so we need you to make only one change. Please deselect "Search for negligible risk entries" as negligible risk entries (MRU's) are not considered to be a threat. This option can be changed when choosing your scan type.

Select "Perform Full System Scan" and press "Next". When the scan has completed, click "Show Logfile".

Please copy/paste the complete log file here using the reply button. Don't quarantine or remove anything at this time, just post a complete logfile. This sometimes takes 2-3 posts to get it all posted. You will know you are at the end when you see the "Summary of this scan" information has been posted.

When you have posted your log here, Team Lavasoft can advise on what to do next.

Please post back if you have any questions or other problems.


Good luck

Andy
