    Hi Adrian,

    That link works fine for me, I just checked and downloaded it fine

    I don't doubt for a minute that it is working for you, but I tried it since you posted your response and it is still doing the same thing. After one has downloaded the software from the net, one is presented with a two part thing , the first part is the package one is looking for but when one clicks install it and goes to where it has assigned itself to install, there is nothing whilst the second part creates a link on one's desktop to a trial for a payware mobile phone software utility. The only explaination I can think off is that, there is some sort of mechanism connected with the site offering this software that would give out the actuall software to some people and just a link to an advert to others.

    Hello Adrian.

    Are you sure you don't have some kind of 'evilware' re-directing you?

    You could be right about the evilware but I think the second part that put the link on to my desktop to the payware, has got to do with the person who has the download page, because the name of the company is quite like his name, so that aspect looks me as if it is controlled by the site that is in the link, the only thing I can think of which could be generating a different response from other folks, is because the way my ISP does its thing my IP address will often come up as being listed as a suspected proxy, so maybe the download site handles download requests from suspected proxy IP addresses in that way.

    Hello Adrian.

    Have you run an Avast boot scan lately?

    Nope

    The regular Avast picked up a Virus a couple of minutes ago. Might run the boot scan after the ClamWin has completed.

    I am currently running a whole system scan with a freeware called ClamWin, it is specified as being compatible with Vista though it does not say anything about the 64 bit version, though so far [ the scan is not yet competed ] it seems to be running fine.

    Please note that ClamWin Free Antivirus does not include an on-access real-time scanner. You need to manually scan a file in order to detect a virus or spyware.

    Hello Adrian.

    It is my understanding that it is best to let the progran that detects the 'evilware'
    remove it from the system.
    Let that happen then run the "Boot Scan". just to mention it; two A/Vs running
    on the same system will conflict with each other, like two F/Ws.

    Get rid of all you can with the progams you have then it would be a good idea to
    install this and run it and attach (not copy/paste) the log file here. Maybe someone that knows HJT will have a look at it for you.

    Hi.

    Not seeing you have a F/W installed (I'm sure you're using MS F/W) it would
    be a good idea to install this and let it run a scan also before the HJT scan.
    Just disable the Windows F/W before installing. (WFW is worthless)
    Also run a "Windows Defender" full scan.
