My computer just picked up more problems:

 

1.

racking Cookie Revsci

Tracking Cookie Revsci is a malicious software that can be used to interfere with the normal operation of a computer, gather personal information or allow a hacker to access the device remotely without the user's consent.

This kind of malware usually arrives in the form of an unwanted download from a malicious website or as code illegally injected into a legitimate website without the webmaster's knowledge. It can also be received as an email attachment or an instant message from an untrusted source.
by AVG ThreatLabs

What does Tracking Cookie Revsci do?

Though Tracking Cookie Revsci may have the appearance of being legitimate and useful, the program performs in the background unwanted actions. The malicious effects of Tracking Cookie Revsci may be anything undesirable for a computer user including:

  • Stealing hard disk space and memory, slowing down or completely stopping the PC
  • Data theft (personal information, credit card information, used passwords...)
  • Corrupting or deleting data
  • Compromising the entire system by providing remote access to hackers
  • Gathering information about your web-browsing habits without your consent for advertising purposes
  • Installing other unwanted software

Generally, most Tracking Cookie Revsci can be detected and removed by AVG.

Ok thanks for the link.  It seems strange that AVG would suggest the aggressive behaviour of the cookies I had if there wasn't an issue.  I guess some are aggressive and others aren't.

 

Did you see message 75 in response to your questions.  It has been a while since you posted so you might have missed it in the stream of posts? thanks :laughing:

 

So I'm still unsure whether everything is ok with my system.  on the ESET it found a trojan when I was doing the scan - not heard back about that, also a trojan was picked up by my anti virus which I had to manually clean as it was such a big file from 2013.  (message 75 explains more).

 

if so what is next please?

 

thanks

Do you mean this message,

Hi Joe,

- No I didn't receive a pop up my AVG picked it up, and said that the file was so big that I had to ok it to remove it doing it manually rather than AVG just auto removing it. The strange thing is that the virus was in the G: drive (as I mentioned before) AND it was in backup files dating back to May and June 2013. How come it hadn't been picked up before now? What sort of security risk or damage will the virus have done been left on my system for so long?

- Can you give me some feedback about the last log, any issues, I'm guessing as you haven't mentioned it that it was ok?

- I received this message today from my SP:


Minimum specification

Incompatible Browser

We have detected that you are using a browser not currently supported by Plusnet Assist. The supported Browsers are :

•Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher
•Firefox
•Safari

This was while using Firefox, (remember when I said that the logo changed while using Firefox wondering it is re-directing to another page?)

I also got this message "mcci+mccilogx from Alcatel-Lucent" unverified publisher wanted to run. No idea what that was about.

thanks Joe

Not sure what that is but it's clean, not malware related.

Not sure why that was not picked up before, you could reformat the USB.

Not familiar with that web site and why it's saying that.

How is the computer running?

Joe

Going to work now, will check this later 4 pm EST.

how do I reformat the USB?


Open Mycomputer and look for the USB you want to format, you will see it listed as removable storage device and a letter E , F, G , or H like that. All you do is put your mouse over it, now right click on it, a window opens , choose reformat and windows will erase everything on it.

Are you referring to the machine we are working on right now ? Windows 7 Home Premium with AVG\AVG2014 already installed.

Thanks
Joe :)
