    My computer freezes, stops working,doesn\’t turn on sometimes.I know exactly why, my norton security suite catches OVER 50 different websites trying to hack me. I play the mmorpg game popular, called runescape, it is copyrightes, ive been playing for years im 100% sure it\’s not runescape, but anyways i have plenty of room on my hard drive but its like a wall, when u hit it the other side still shakes. when norton blocks the websites they still manage to get me frozen and give MAJOR lag. I would smack the S**t out of these nerds who are hacking if i knew them. Anyways please tell me a way on how to stop this. Symptoms- Freezes if not used in 5 minutes
    -it works on 1 file and after use of about 10 minutes nothing else opens up
    -after trying to open up something computer freezes resulting in a reboot
    -in a 4 hour computer session i reboot my computer more than 10x
    i have a windows XP compaq presario 2005 (i know its old but works great until now)
    im not going to buy a new computer unless it crashes cause i know its fixable

    best regards,
    Ehsan M- please try to contact me on my unpublified email ASAP about this thanks.

    Didn’t see those exact files but removed Registry line ending defender .exe, shortcut referring to the defender file, and file in application data named defender and problem seems to be resolved; at least i can now run msconfig and task manager again normally and I don’t have that nasty icon in my notification area (Windows XP)

  • Jody says:

  • Thomas says:

  • Aman says:

    Guys, thank you so much for helping me to remove this nasty piece of malware.i was in a real bind this morning but I found your blogg and resolved the problem. I still don’t understand why my Mcafee didn’t pick this up, but thanks again for the resolution

  • Mc-LiNDY says:

    Thank you Spy Hunter

  • Holger says:

    Thx mate, it worked.

  • Vince999 says:

    Spyware Protection will not let you do anything once it is installed – you cant even run task manager to stop it
    What I did was
    1) restart in SAFE mode
    2) went to the start menu, right clicked the Spyware protection icon and selected properties
    It turned out to be a file in the user’s roaming folder
    3) I navigated to that folder, right clicked the file and ran AVIRA against it.
    Avira duly detected the trojan and dealt with it (but no idea why it didn’t stop it in the first place)
    After I restarted, I was back to normal – although I’m well aware that there are still bits of Software Protection left around
    (Not my computer, user wanted it back)
