Re: Security Web Site That Identifies Viruses at Target URL?

    | Is there an anti-virus website that you can give a URL to that would scan
    | that site and identify any virus/trojan that the site tries to install?

    It is hard to traverse the entire site but, this is a good start.

    you sound as if I'm the only person who's ever said that. For the sake of
    clarification, I will state the malware aspect is that of scamware.
    Please do be sure you further I specified scamware if your going to
    continue using my words for reference material.

    When putting in uniblue.com into URLvoid scanner you get:

    One scanner ' MyWOT ' called it 'suspicious'
    One scanner ' hpHosts ' called it 'unrated'

    And Roy C was told by some including me that it was a bad site that was mostly snake
    oil. He also found out the hard way as you will.

    Damnit, BD. you ruin my humour when you actually agree with me. I was
    really expecting you to put up a fight or comeback with some wiseass
    remark. When your civil like this, I have to respond in kind. ;p
    I don't know who that individual is, sorry. I'm also unfamiliar with Mark
    and mainstreet. No, I don't wish to learn more about either of them. I
    find it difficult enough to keep up with the few things I have going at
    this time.

    If you haven't already suggested it, he should get a refund and if they
    are unwilling to provide one, contact his credit card company to have
    the charges reversed. At the least he has been scammed. At worst, he's
    been scammed and software damage has been done to his computer, as we
    can't possibly know which registry keys have been altered since he ran
    the software. If since installing that program he hasn't made any other
    significant system changes or installed new software, I'd recommend he
    uninstall it (Revo uninstaller or total uninstall might be of use in
    this case); In fact, I'd use one of those before I trusted the uniblue
    uninstaller.

    Once he's removed the program, I'd recommend he keep revo or total
    uninstall for future issues, and use the system restore feature to go
    back prior to his installation of said product. That should atleast
    revert the registry hives and critical system files if any have been
    altered/replaced or removed. As your friend would be using the
    unaffected registry, any executables possibly left behind by the
    uninstall process would be neutered and no longer pose any potential
    threat to the system.

    Thank you for the advice, Dustin. I will pass on your comments to
    Clive.

    Surely there is something that can be done to stop companies like
    Uniblue peddle their wares on the Internet?

    Have you and or others posting on these groups made any kind of
    official complaint about what you term 'Scamware' ?

    If the products really do harm, something *should* be done to stop
    them.

    Maybe there's something I could do to help in this regard? Advice
    welcomed.

    Dave

    Go away, you stupid troll.

    And will the rest of you just stop replying to him? He adds nothing to the
    discussion, but he surely generates a lot of noise, and all you're doing is
    enabling him.

    Hmm. The link without context as in, date/time stamps between when you
    mentioned the site and when I posted that would imply I had lied,
    however; if you had bothered to check the date/time stamp of the post,
    it's pretty clear I visited the place well AFTER you mentioned it,
    inquired about the web forum software in use, and forgot about it.
    See above. It's not rocket science.
