Using both AutoRun, where I disabled anything that wasn't verified or highlighted (that seemed suspicious), I looked at Process Explorer and found the above unverified. In the case of
S Agent, I can't suspend it. However, these look like they were installed by Samsung but are no longer supported (according to web searches).
When I try to uninstall these applications, they refuse to uninstall. I did do the manual trick where I removed the files (they are no longer supported by Samsung, I find it odd that Samsung didn't do this themselves) - the one file that cannot be removed is an application called GuaranaAgent (under the Samsung folder). Unfortunately, wiping everything and starting over wouldn't work in this case because these retarded applications came with this computer - and this is kind of what I mean when I write that some of these viruses/malware are installed from the very beginning!
- How do I get rid of these once and for all.
Adobe Reader and Acrobat Managershows up as suspicious with a Total Virus score. I cannot suspend this process, as it just restarts if I do. How do I eliminate this once and for all - I don't need Adobe on this other computer. SOLVED: kill the process, delete the application. Done
I can't go to the store and say, "I want a computer with two browers on it: IE and Chrome and nothing else, outside of my anti virus Webroot." I don't want Adobe, I don't want Shockwave, I don't want anything else on this machine. I have a purpose for this machine (I have others) that Chrome and IE suffice for. That's it. How hard is it to just have a machine for this purpose? The applications that are suspicious were installed on my machine before I got it! That's what I mean how absurd everything is - what kind of company thinks that consumers are this stupid? "We're going to sell you a computer with malware on it." It's embarrassing.
