Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2b for PC
Since putting a new hard drive in as the other had been trojaned I have had 614 requests for GUI%GUICONFIG#SNBENABLEOTHER#ALLOW-TCP. As the old hard drive had been used to transfer images and videos (all encrypted) I am quite concerned as these requests are from all over the world
As you have apparently been the victim of a trojan in the past (although it didn't neccessarily mean you needed a change of HDD) you are quite right in your concern.
I do not know what the request refers to even though I've searched security sites for information on it, however follow the steps below for your own peace of mind.
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/uk/ and carry out an online scan (you will have to download an activex component but Trend Micro is a trusted security company) The length of time for the scan depends on several factors, speed of internet connection, speed of PC and size of HDD. Any malware found can be cleard at the click of a button and will be self explanatory.
Next go here and download Malwarebytes (the free version) install and run.
Finally and MOST IMPORTANT ensure that whichever anti virus software you have installed is up to date and run a scan on a regular basis.
Please note Housecall and Malwarebytes are NOT replacements for anti virus software and do not offer real time protection.
I will be happy to provide you with recommended security software if you wish just email me on email@example.com
