Whilst having problems with a series of BSODs over the last couple of days,
I had a look in system restore with the mad thought in mind that at some
point it could help but mainly with the intention to check to see if I can
restore at any point during the 100 Software Distribution Service 3 entries
since Feb 24 2010.
Going back through all points, I was surprised that there were only 4 check
points and to my horror I saw that PC Defender had been installed on March
If this is that rogue one that has been of interest for a while, then I
could find no trace in my system - probably too well hidden - but I have
done countless scans with MS Security Essentials, MBAM,SAS and a couple of
on-liners a couple of times since then. But I have read that it is a sod to
find and remove.
I cannot think what else it could be - apart from updates, nothing else has
been installed on the computer and I certainly have had no pop-ups with any
virus warnings. MBAM/SAS have removed some minor stuff on the odd occasion.
Reading recent probs with this SDS, I am aware that some have had problems
doing a SR prior to one of these entries.
My laptop has about 20 SDS enties and twice as many check points over the
Providing I can keep my computer stable, I was wondering if it worth trying
a system restore to a point just prior to this suspect rogue install or best
left to just drop out in time.
