Re: Hijack this results- help plz

looks good Smiley Happy

the only odd thing is the location of this file: C:\SMC\SMC.exe

could you verify that you're running the Sygate Firewall?

Re: Hijack this results- help plz

That's interesting. SMC.exe is the executable for the Sygate Firewall. Did you at any time install the Sygate Firewall? Go to the C:\SMC directory using Windows Explorer, right click on SMC.exe and bring up its "Properties" / "Version" and see who it belongs to.

Re: Hijack this results- help plz

hi, this is my mothers computer and she is not able to respond at this time, she said that when she opened it- it just said when it was created, which was on the same day she got comcast?

Re: Hijack this results- help plz

There was no "Version" tab available on the Properties display which defines the Company that made it?

This is very suspicious. The Sygate Firewall is standardly installed in "C:\Program Files\Sygate\SPF".

1. Are there any other files in that "C:\SMC" directory which might give any information as to what this is?

2.Is there anything in the Add/Remove programs for SMC?

What you can do is download and run CodeStuff's Starter. This allows you to disable this program from starting and see if your system runs ok without it.

Re: Hijack this results- help plz

there was nothing to add\remove, it said contains one file so i opened it and it is SMC Networks\Consumer site and this is what the page said on 'about SMC'

SMC Networks offers a complete range of flexible, multi-standard networking hardware. As a recognized industry leader for the past 30 years, SMC Networks has set the standard for high-quality, standards-based connectivity and Internet access solutions. SMC's products connect people to the resources they need - home, at work, and everywhere in between.

when i opened it there was an icon on the task bar that came up. i have no idea what this is?

also when i go to exit this a window pops up and asks, do you want to load the update software on start up?

Re: Hijack this results- help plz

your pc must have a SMC network card installed then...

goto your desktop, right-click 'my computer', select 'manage', then, 'device manager', click the '+' next to 'network adapters'

then it should show which model is installed.

you could probably say 'no' to 'run the update software'

Re: Hijack this results- help plz

this is my mother,

it says SMC easy card 10/100 "SMC 1255TX-PF"
so just leave it alone?
