Andreas Haak

Recommended Posts

When I Scanned for Issues with Ccleaner, it found two entries marked "Andreas Haak".

 

Does this mean anything to anyone?

I believe he is a real person who makes scanners against trojans.

Once someone used his name in a worm though.

As Hazelnut already said, he's the creator of A-Squared anti-trojan software: http://www.emsisoft.com/en/

 

Sounds familiar to you?

 

Otherwise, right-click the entry in question in the CC Issues Results list, and choose 'Open in RegEdit'.

 

In Regedit, rightclick the subkey ('folder') in question, and choose "Export > as txtfile"

 

Post the contents of that textfile in your reply.

Ah, thanks for the link. I forgot all about a-squared and forgot to be on the lookout for updates. Apparently they just updated it to 2.0 so I'll give it a shot.

I downloaded it and It's ok. I don't like the fact that it keeps making me log in every time I open in. It hasn't detected anything so maybe its false positive problem has been fixed.

I've heard that before about A2...

 

You know, if you're running a good antivirus, there are not many AT's that represent a true boost in your level of protection.

 

I've tried TrojanHunter, had TDS-3 installed for years in tandem with BOClean, and I have to say that BOClean is the one I recommend above all.

 

It has a huge database, updates often, and support is absolutely first rate.

I have A-Squared on my computer, so that'll be where it came from, I guess.

 

Thanks for your help.

You're very welcome, and sorry we subsequently forgot ALL about your original question... LOL!
