Twice have I installed BoClean and twice after testing with Trojan Test has it messed up my internet connection. It stops the Trojan Test from running and deletes it, but after that my Internet Connection is dead. I have got to use System Restore.
What the hell is the good of software that does that? I will live without BoClean I think!!
The sixth checkbox is marked “Automatic cleanup of winsock connectivity.” This item is turned on by default as well. However, this checkbox controls a number of additional cleanups which reflect the latest tendencies to corrupt the winsock “Layered Service Provider” (or “LSP”) stack as well as the winsock itself. When certain malware inserts itself into the winsock stack and is subsequently removed, you lose all internet connectivity as a result of the “missing piece.” Leaving this checkbox checked will cause BOClean to examine the “winsock stack” and repair the sequence to prevent loss of connectivity. We strongly advise leaving this box checked.
I fail to see the point of this. What is the use of leaving this checked when you lose Internet Connection? Bo Clean dosent appear to be repairing Winsock in my case, and it would appear in other people as well!
I suggest someone looks into this very important failing.
I thought Boclean was meant to stop the malware from running in the first place, not to repair its damage afterwards? (which is always a risk anyway). Spyware terminator prevents changes to winsock etc, so why repair when you can prevent?
