Thanks for the reply Little Mac. I didn’t see that particular warning about the system locks. But what I’m seeing has me curious. Maybe you could help.
The following takes place inside Windows Explorer… between 9 pm and 10 pm
Double clicking the icon to run Trojan Simulator brings up a BoClean window that states…
"This trojan horse program was found on your machine.
It has been shut down, but the FILE from which it
started still remains and can be started up again.
Do you want the file removed also?
I clicked “No”
Here’s where it gets a little strange
I double-clicked the TrojanSimulator icon again and didn’t get an alert from BoClean.
I shut down the TrojanSimulator app.
Waited 10 seconds
Ran TrojanSimulator again, but BoClean stopped it.
I didn’t allow BoClean to delete the file.
Waited 5 seconds
Ran TrojanSim again and it was allowed to run.
After receiving no alert from BoClean, I closed TrojanSim and went back to my web browser.
After about 15-20 seconds, I heard the Windows “Exclamation.wav”
I minimized my web browser window and, finally, there was the Boclean alert - same as before.
From what I’m seeing, BoClean will block any further attempts to run the file again if I wait about 10 seconds. Other than that, BoClean doesn’t seem to mind it running the second, third or fourth time if it is attempted within a few seconds.
I’m kind of leaning toward performance issues on my end, mainly because of the long time delay for the last alert.
In this type of situation, could this be any type of risk if it were a real trojan? I ask because I don’t know alot about trojans or if they are capable of persistantly trying to infect a system. Not trying to act like I’m intelligent in these matters, cause I’m far from it. Just sharing what I’m seeing. Hopefully, it’s nothing.
Just one more note: Some info on my machine…
Dell system with 2.8 ghz processor
1 gig of ram
Windows Xp Pro
Running processes: 38, including: Kaspersky Antivirus, SpySweeper, CPF.
Thanks for your reply Little Mac.
