Hmm Malwarebytes did forget hosts file. 127.0.0.1 microsoft.com was 1 line. Still great but just shows most removal sessions includes research, action, research, action. Could have been much worse. There are good reasons all those malware removal forums exist - and backup solutions  :D

A2 Squared did not find anything except download btw.

I've really liked a-squared (free version) for at least the last few years, but "holy crap" is exactly my reaction of late.

I wasn't too concerned. I'm lucky enough to have a 10 meg connection so I wasn't too inconvenienced by the download, but I think this is the first program I have ever downloaded where the updates were significantly larger than the initial download.

I wish I could brag about my incredible connection too, but 'nuff said about that. Likewise, I haven't encountered another security program (or any program as you say) that required such huge updates. Does anybody know if the update now includes the Ikarus AV updates as well. In the past, I think the malware sigs and the AV sigs were distinct downloads, but now I'm not sure. Regardless, "holy crap" remains my mantra because I'm unlucky enough to not have a 10 meg connection.

Fair enough.

Good job...resisted saying something about your connection for all of three sentences.  :Thmbsup:

Laugh...I just thought it was funny and couldn't resist teasing you. I have a relative is still on dial-up and whenever I have to go over to his house internet access is just excruciating.
