are you familiar with/or installed this program? ItsDeductible7

I need you to download MWav to a convenient location.

This scan might take around 3+ hours to finish when set to scan everything.
I need you to run MWav by double-clicking on mwav.exe.
Put a check next to the below items before scanning:
  • Memory
  • Startup Folders
  • Drive - All Local Drives
  • Registry
  • System Folders
  • Services
  • Include Sub-Directory
  • Scan All Files
Please make sure ALL of these are checked, then press the Scan button. This typically will take hours to complete.

**NOTE*** Sometimes MWav will pause and it appears to be finished, but it isn't done. Just let it run until it says it's complete.

On the bottom portion of the window, you will see the lower panel where MWav is listing "infected items". When it's done scanning, please highlight everything in that lower panel and copy them by holding CTRL + C then paste it here. The whole log will be extremely BIG so there is no way to post the log. I just need the infected items list.

Don't copy and paste the lines from infected files that are present in quarantine, recovery or backupfolders from antispywarescanner (eg adaware, spybot s&d) or your virusscanner. Those I don't need.
I don't need the infected files/lines that are present in your System Volume Information-folder.
I just want all the other infected ones apart from those above.

Yes, I installed ItsDeductible7 last year to help record all my tangible charitable donations for tax purposes. I record them there and it downloads directly into Turbo Tax. Is there a problem with that program? I will try Mwav again. Post results later
