also keep getting click here attempting to connect to a remote address and likewise with tclick here

ran a virus scan with avast free edition which found a virus and sucessfully deleted the files but the firewall is still having these problems, tried deleting the click here but windows xp sp1 recreates it so i assume it's a system file...

is there anywhere i can get any info on why this is happening, i run an ftp server on port 11000 to prevent /pub scans but am still having the forementioned problems...

any help, tia...

Your last link is not working, but turn System Restore off before scanning with Avast and then let it delete.Don't forget to turn System Restore back on afterwards. If that doesn't clear it try in safe mode (Tap F8 when booting then scan again) Also there is an option in Avast to delete when booting make sure that is ticked.

Actually none of your links are working. (For me anyway)

  Dorsai 17:39 22 Nov 2004

I dont think they are intended to be links. I think it is a case that the text looks like a link, and gets gets converted into a 'click here'

"also keep getting ftp: // click here attempting to connect to a remote address and likewise..."

But may be wrong

try and post 'ftp . exe' to this site, without the i did, and you get a 'click here'. 'ftp: \\ ftp . exe'

  rawprawn 17:42 22 Nov 2004

I See what you mean.Have you any other ideas?

  Dorsai 17:50 22 Nov 2004

Only that there is lsass.exe (firts letter Between K and M), part of windows, and Isass.exe (first letter between H and J) a virus. As the windows bit is with a lover case l, and the virus a Capital I, they look very simular in the standard windows font. Deliberately done by the virus writer, to confuse the user into not being able to tell apart.

the virus click here

the windows part, click here

But this may not be the cause, but is all i can think of.

I wonder if this might help click here Download and run Trial of Spy sweeper it has cured the odd sticky problem for me in the past.

thanks for the link, looks like that was what was causing the problem as my firewall kept disappering and bandwidth was all soaked up by an unknown process, ended up with a full format and reinstall, this is me just back up for net acces, lost my ftp server setting the lot as i didn't want to take any chances, thanks...

yep, they're not links, it's pca's intelligent "click here" links, lol
