Detected Backdoor.Bandock on Spyware Doctor (as a "high" threat) but not on McAfee Security Centre. When removed by S/ware Doc, red "no protection" warning on McAfee which wouldnt fix ("errors"). The locations supposedly infected all had Mcafee in the name. With Mcafee help, un and reinstalled, ran both scans again - same thing happens. Only way to keep McAfee protection now is to keep S/ware doc closed.Several things. Is this infection real? How serious? are the two things merely incompatible? Why isnt McAfee picking this up? Can anyone help please, and how do I get rid of this? Sorry, bit of a mouthful, but appreciate some help - both companies not a lot of help so far.Thanks
Thanks, will do likewise, am awaiting useful help from both Mcafee and Spyware Doctor. Have sent files to SD, McAfee are trying to say SD is incompatable, even though its not on the list (dont have the antivirus which is listed.)Are also, distubingly, selling the line that because they havent picked it up then its not harmful and nothing to worry about. Hmmm. Will share info as soon as I get it
Hiya, I had massive problems with Spyware Doctor. It slowed down my pc to a crawl. As suggested above try Malaware bytes program, it is free. I took out Spyware Doctor and installed Spybot search and Destroy. It works fantastic. Does not slow down pc at all. It is also free. Good Luck. Mick.
Anyone managed to sort this out? Mine seems worse. SDoc say false +ve and run smart update. Done this, no difference, except now just running SD alongside mcafee without even scanning, get red cross "unprotected" warning on mcafee. Have to close SD, reboot and then get normal green "protected" tick on mcafee.Guess need to give SD the boot and replace with other spyware? Also occaisionally get red warning with mcafee which wont fix, because of "error". If reboot its ok - any views on this one?
