although I have windows live and have done a total security scan my system is saying i have a worm trying to take credit card details.
Monday, February 22, 2010 7:11 AMI have windows live one care and have done s total systems scan, which located three problems which have been deleted, however a warning from 'Security Tool' keeps coming up saying
WinSSSIntro.exe is infescted with worm
Lsas.Blasterkeylogger. This worm is trying to send you credit card details using misfeedssync.exe to connect to remote host.
Spyware.IE monster activity detected
This 'Security Tool' is asking for a subscription to join to remove this worm and the warning as far as I am concened has not come from my own security system but another system.
The computer uses vista
Also I read on this forum that windows live onecare is now extinct but I seem to have it still, the scan and cleanup certainly was working last night. Am I covered. my subscription ran out in november 2009 but it said it had automatically renewed for 6 months and is valid till the biginning of may.
