Ran several scans today and was shocked to see that the following was picked up...
Heuristic.ArchiveBomb (files that were just downloads for The Sims game)
I don't know if it was A2 or Ewido that found these. Also, i've recently noticed a folder containing something called Viewpoint Experience Technology. Anyone know what these things are/what I should do? Thanks for any advice.
Hi Nellie2 - thanks for your reply. All system is up to date, so hopefully that took care of the exploit. Seems safe to assume it was just a false positive re the 'bomb', but still don't know what the viewpoint technology thing is? It's not something i've downloaded, and it's not showing in my list of add/remove programmes, so is it safe to just delete the folder? Thanks :-)
It's possably this click here, a free media player browser plugin.
If it is, then I think you can remove browser plugins from within IE (I'm assuming that you are using ie);
-Tools -Manage Add-ons -Enable/disable Add-ons
Then in the main pane look for anything related to viewpoint technology, click on it to highlight it. Now go to settings (just below), click the disable button. Then click the OK button, and that should be that.
