I have a driver on my pc that I dont recognize and dont believe I installed?

I believe I may have a trojan, malware, or some sort of hacker accessing my computer. There are strange users,drivers, and hidden files on my computer. I believe it may have been accessed via my samsung galaxy III and/or my homegroup/wifi connection. Do you have any advise or tips for me?

It is not always easy and even possible to recognize drivers.
First of all you could download a freeware analyzer, such as you can find here:
It will scan your computer for such files and may remove them.

If your problems persist, things get more difficult.
One way to go is installing the next free Microsoft tool:
This Process Explorer will show you all processes running on your computer and display the manufacturer's name of the driver or application.
There you may check for "anonymous" or "suspect" entries, copy over their name and run a google search on them. There are plenty of sites that show reports.
This type of analysis is tedious, but may point in the direction of offending software.
Good luck!

I assume you put the camera into vcr mode after connecting the cable? Are you sure you've got the cable plugged in to the correct places both on the camera and on the PC? The camera won't register until it's turned on, and it may require play mode.

SOURCE: Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV not recognized by Windows 7

win vista and win 7doesn't support usb streaming. the usb driver for this model would not be compatible with your computer's OS. although, you were able to download PMB still this wouldn't work, it's basically an alternative software that you can use with the newer OS. still the device driver would not be installed. and you would get a message that "ilink connection is not detected". the reason you get that is bec the camcorder and the software is intended for use with the dv (ilink or ieee1394) connection. so if your computer has an ieee1394 card and you have a compatible ilink cable,then your good to go,it should be a plug-and-play connection (no drivers required). all you need then would be a video capturing software (like win moviemaker) to transfer videos from tape to PC. hope this helps. thanks :)

My laptop was hacked, does changing password stop them from getting my info

if you have been hacked the information and data on your laptop is gone, copied or up for ransom
changing you pass word will prevent future attacks
the hackers got in on a link or by some other method and did not need your pass word
use a high quality anti virus program and do a full scan on the laptop to rid hidden virus, trojan or malware problems left by the hackers

Dec 20, 2016 | Computers & Internet




I have heard a lot of reports lately about people camera's being hacked, but the information being reported is incorrect!!!! no hacker can just magically turn on your camera ,, it doesnt work like that. This letter serves to inform you on how its done, the methods involved , what can be done to stop it, how to detect it and how to catch that person.

Laptops and Web Camera's. (Wired and Inbuilt)

This is the safest type to have for personal use. A Hacker cant just turn it on ,, it doesnt work like that. In order for this to happen the hacker must have the victims computer "Zombiefied" , in other words hijacked. This simply means that there must be a program in the computer which allows the hacker backdoor access. This type of software is called a TROJAN. There are different ways for this to transmit this software to the victim, 1.) A Dropper in an infected email attachment e.g. "HARD ENCRYPTED IN A PHOTO (merging) , 2.) Hidden in a piece of software e.g, freeware or sharware 3.) As a TROJAN in Pirated Software, 4.) Via A flashdrive 5.) In an Active X Control or Plugin for Websites and Web Browsers, 6.) Email BOMB e.g auto redirect to an infected url containing the dropper.
Now the Virus (Trojan) isnt transmitted directly to the system, what happens is that firstly a dropper is installed, this dropper is small , can be installed at the blink of an eye, and deletes it self so quickly coders of antivirus identities will see hell to find it. Now the dropper then can take its precious time, disable your security measures (anti virus, firewall etc) and download and install the Trojan then delete itself. Now this means that once the hacker gets your IP address he can use that to access the Trojan on the specified port which he/she can then execute remote arbitrary code , like get access to the display drivers of the webcam, open your drives, shut down the system etc. basically anything he or she designed it to do.

How To Catch the hacker or tell if your infected.
Now if your computer is being hijacked there must be a connection to it! Basically data must flow from your pc to your hackers and the commands from your hackers pc to yours. So basically all you need to do is find out who your computer is connected to.

For Windows.
1.) click start
2.) In the run box type cmd and hit enter
3.) type netstat -n in the command prompt that appears and hit enter

now you will see 4 columns Proto , Local Address , Foreign Address , State

ok crash course,
Proto is the type of protocol
Local Address is your Ip address on the network, is a loop back, next to it is the open port of your system
Foreign Address is the Ip your connected to
State is bacically the state of the connection.

ok so you see a lot of foreign IP's with an established connection, start from the top.
1.) open a browser window and go to a whois webserver e.g
2.) do a whois search on the IP, e.g in the type the foreign ip in the box and hit enter .. e.g

this shows me this

OrgName: Yahoo!
Address: 701 First Ave
City: Sunnyvale
StateProv: CA
PostalCode: 94089
Country: US
ok so thats yahoo's Ip thats safe..

do this too all the Ips you have. once you find one that appears to be your hacker simply do a reverse DNS on thaty IP to get your hackers location or report it to the authorities (NO I AINT WALKING YOU THROUGH A REVERSE DNS).. So what if your hacker is using a proxy ?? chances are no, for one thing the connecting bandwidth needed will be to slow on a proxy server so he's using his own IP..

Wireless Web Cams, IP CAMERAS, AND Wireless Networks,

1.) All of these operate with an inbuilt server that allows the person access once he has the appropriate IP address. Hell a quick port scan on that Ip and i will have all your open ports, then simply log in to that Ip on that port , If prompted for a username and password try the default, if that dont work try sql, or js injection or other exploits and walla I have access. no need for a trojan.

2.) Wireless routers can be exploited by basically capturing wireless packets sent, from this i will have your ssid and and encryption type. Simply use Cain and Abel or other brtue enforcer or a jacker which will get me your encryption key, to make the process faster use the captured packets to limit the characters to generate the key. now I can connect to your router and if you have a home network I can join it or search all the computers to get to all your shared documents and files etc..

Ok what to do??
1.) firstly in your router settings use a really strong (character , number and sysmbol) password
2.) use a WPSK2 or stronger encryption system and use a really stron key (13 + characters, numbers and symbols) this will make cracking the key harder
3.) turn off transmist SSID ,, basically I cant crack what i dont know about
4.) limit your antenna transmit power so its only connectible within your house, I cant hack what I cant connect too can I ??

Now some point of information..

1.) your IP address Dynamic. meaning it will change everytime your router resets, do this at least once every week

2.) All antivirus / spyware / malware programs can only remove what it knows about regular updates are necessary. In order for it to function.

3.) Virus, malware, trojans, spyware, worms etc, are all different things , most antivirus will remove viruses , some spyware etc. use multiple software.. e.g AVG Free Anti Virus, Super Anti Spyware , Malware bytes. dont use more than 1 dedicated antivirus.

4.) Be safe!

Depends on the response this gets I will write a few more letters like this or if anyone is interested I'll be happy to get into more details about how these things work. Please send this around to as much people as you can and be safe .. regards Dark_Lord_TnT Ps. If you need any help feel free to ask..

How to remove win32/mebroot?

Hi there,
Well this Win32/mebroot is a trojan and you need a trojan killer to remove this. you can remove this by two ways -
1. Online - means when your computer runs the operating system and you can install the trojan killer and search for the trojan.
2. Offline - in this you don't need to start the operating system of your computer, you just need the offline CD of a trojan killer that starts automitally before windows start and then you just make a search for the trojan.
Please follow the below link to get your trojan killer -

Good Luck

What is trojan horse virus

A Trojan Horse is full of as much trickery as the mythological Trojan Horse it was named after. The Trojan Horse, at first glance will appear to be useful software but will actually do damage once installed or run on your computer. Those on the receiving end of a Trojan Horse are usually tricked into opening them because they appear to be receiving legitimate software or files from a legitimate source. When a Trojan is activated on your computer, the results can vary. Some Trojans are designed to be more annoying than malicious (like changing your desktop, adding silly active desktop icons) or they can cause serious damage by deleting files and destroying information on your system. Trojans are also known to create a backdoor on your computer that gives malicious users access to your system, possibly allowing confidential or personal information to be compromised. Unlike viruses and worms, Trojans do not reproduce by infecting other files nor do they self-replicate.

Please rate the solution if helpful. Thank you

I temporarily had my virus detection off and received a malware trojan. It has been removed, but I can't get on the internet now. Have my settings been changed or how do I fix this? Thanks!!

If you are sure the trojan has been removed, you can try a couple of things. First, make sure your drivers for you network interface card are installed and enabled. Of course, make sure your ethernet cable is connected to you modem/router. Third, once you are sure that the network interface card, drivers, and cable are installed try re-installing your internet explorer or whatever program you are using for internet access. You might have to install your internet access program from the disk or you can download the internet explorer program to a flash drive on another computer and install it on yours. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

I keep getting a virus alert and when I ask to remove viruses it brings me to a page to buy virus protection. I already have virus protection on Windows. What can I do to resolve this annoying problem...

You are infected with a Trojan or Malware. The pop-ups are bogus.. You are only infected with the product they are trying to sell you. What is the name of the Virus Protection they are trying to sell you? First thing to do is restart your computer in Safe Mode and run all your security scans. See it they find the culprit.If not post back,

How do i get rid of viruses on my computer it keeps sssaying something about trojan an a url pops up with pure numbersw saying that it is attacking my computer

Assuming you can access the internet, navigate to and search for MalwareBytes Anti-malware. Download and follow the default installation steps and run a quick scan (or full if you have time) and see how that does for you. It's a very effective anti-malware program. That should find and clear up your pop-ups and trojan.
