Uniblue SpyEraser finds Nyxem

  breadwinner 15:13 02 Feb 2008

A free scan with SpyEraser has found Nyxem & Imloader, but Spyware Doctor dosn't. neither does Spybot S+D or a-squared free. Is Spyeraser telling me porkies so I buy the product

You have done the right thing in using the free options to check for the problem?

If your computer is running ok I would not take SpyEraser too seriously,

Thank you for your reply mfletch

Any other thoughts on this

I have found this,

imloader.exe is part of the Incredimail package

Nyxem click here

The 'Nyxem.e' is a mass-mailing worm that also tries to spread using remote shares.

Download and do a full scan with SAS Superantispyware

Thanks once again mfletch. I have tried the other programs and they tell me I'm clean. I have run about 6 anti=spyware apps throught it & they all find nothing
Thank you

Hi, have a read through this link - note that when this scan is run it frequently reports all 'clean',
so it is not just finding 'things' to make you pay for it! I have run the scan several times and have always got the Green-light - this to me, is confirmation that I am doing a good job of protecting my computer, as per the other regular members seen in my link .... in my partners' experience it has found nasties that other programs had missed.

Another program that finds things others don't.Then wants you to pay.Now it would be interesting to see if this finds any problems.click here Imloader is now recommended as safe with A Squared and thats probably why it never picked it up.

Let us know how you get on with Prevx.It will probably find something different.
