Virus That Disables Copy/Paste


pcworld-cyberattack-100026010-largeThat’s what it did to my netbook and I thought ‘this is a Trojan’. What’s amazing was the virus wasn’t caught by a heavyweight AV or antimalware. Only my first line of defense – Rkill – did that!

Rkill was run on 06/11/2013 at 23:18:50.
Operating System: Windows 7 Starter

Processes terminated by Rkill or while it was running:

C:\Windows\system32\sdclt.exe
C:\Program Files\Google\Update\GoogleUpdate.exe
C:\Windows\system32\sppsvc.exe

I’m not sure yet though if one or all those files caused the infection
Rkill

Because of that infection, I rediscovered a great app for searching files (had a hard time searching for the Rkill log).
SearchMyFiles is an alternative to the standard “Search For Files And Folders” module of Windows. It allows you to easily search files in your system by wildcard, by last modified/created/last accessed time, by file attributes, by file content (text or binary search), and by the file size. SearchMyFiles allows you to make a very accurate search that cannot be done with Windows search. For Example: You can search all files created in the last 10 minutes with size between 500 and 700 bytes.

After you made a search, you can select one or more files, and save the list into text/html/csv/xml file, or copy the list to the clipboard.SearchMyFiles is portable, and you can use it from a USB flash drive without leaving traces in the Registry of the scanned computer.

Postable Thank You Cards
We hope to make writing and mailing cards to a large group, easy and pleasurable, instead of daunting and nightmarish. Whether you have to write 15 thank you cards for your child’s birthday gifts, 40 thank you cards for your baby shower or 100 thank you cards after your wedding, Postable removes all of the hassle and lets you focus on what’s important, the message. Type one card, save it and type the next card. You can write personal messages to as many people as you want and whenever you’re done, we print, stuff, stamp and mail all of the cards directly to each recipient for you.
