  1. Now, then. Ahem. Errrr, ummm. In post #8 at Bleeping, you said "I posted trolltech first at the CCleaner forum and many are saying it isn't. Check it out." That is not true. It is an understandable miscommunication, but nevertheless it is not true. Huge Roll Eyes…. I stand by what I said as being true and correct. First you state as if it is not malware or a big enough threat to attempt to remove it on your XP machine which isn’t even supported anymore. See Post 7. Then in post 9 you vascillate indicating it might be but your comment is convoluted and not succinct enough to make any determination. Hazelnut states it is “not malware”. eL_PuSHeR says it is “not malware”. Nergal agrees it belongs to an application thus is legit. Andavari doesn’t seem to think it is malware either. Looks like it is 4-1 as indifferent or positively not malware. You being the only possible person who thinks it might be. Hard to tell though because you waiver. I might add that Hazelnut was wrong with this comment:Posted 29 May 2014 - 05:47 AM I see nothing in that thread that says it is sophisticated malware. It was in the title of the post as I responded to her. Here is a more in depth analysis of the facts. Perhaps you should evaluate the facts before you make accusations. ------------------------------------------------------------------- hazelnut stated (Posted 29 May 2014 - 12:32 AM) Just right click on the entry and select 'add to exclude list'.We can conclude that ignoring this key by excluding it shows there is no concern it is a malware threat. Nergal posted this (Posted 29 May 2014 - 12:46 AM) I have the troll tech one too (I've previously researched it and agreed it belonged to an application I use but don't remember which) so I excluded it (hazelnut's suggestion above). For the registry it's best to only remove what you know you don't need (see my signature below) So it belongs to an application and was excluded then ignored so we can conclude that there was no effort to treat or remove it as malware. login123 posted this (Posted 29 May 2014 - 07:17 PM)I have that registry entry, Nergal & Hazelnut also do, so probably that entry by itself does not mean malware. But from what I found using Googe & Duck Duck Go it might mean that. I would not conclude that it does unless one of the malware experts says so. So login123 thinks the entry is by itself “probably” does not mean malware. He then references searches stating it “might” mean that. (that the entry by itself probably does not mean malware). He won’t conclude that the entry by itself probably does not mean malware. Hazelnut then states, “Posted 29 May 2014 - 11:37 PM I am 100% certain that the entry I have is NOT malware. eL_PuSHeR Posted Yesterday, 01:40 AM I have that entry too. And it's not malware. It's related to a legit (and free) program I use, using the QT framework. Andavari Posted Yesterday, 03:34 PM doesn’t seem to think it is malware either.I think allot of people could freak out over just the name having "Troll" in it. Probably the same feelings would come if it was "VirusTech". Hazelnut was wrong with this comment: Posted 29 May 2014 - 05:47 AM I see nothing in that thread that says it is sophisticated malware. It was in the title of the post as I responded to her.
  2. Update: This is a hand me down laptop from my son so the Global Mod from Bleepingcomputer.com said it probably has a trojan from cracked software. Urges a reinstall but it's a Sony Vaio and didn't come with recovery disks. Anyway, he said this about Trolltech: Trolltech is not necessarily a malware. But it's file may have been infected. You were infected and probably from cracked software. Every file there found by ESET is infected and should be removed. The cracks are free so they can give you infections like Themida .[
  3. Probably. It seemed legit but just wondered why it kept coming back. Thx.
  4. Thanks for the info! Appreciate it.
  5. Responded in bold type...Thx.
  6. It is in the title of that posted thread, "I am fighting with a sophisticated malware for weeks! Help!". His post is from yesterday and in my thread he posted there the same thing stating " this is a sophisticated malware. sadly it is not so popular yet, so there is no public cleaner available. (as far as I know) actually I just created a new thread about that persistent malware: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/535871/i-am-fighting-with-a-sophisticated-malware-for-weeks-help/ Here is my thread.. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/535869/obsolete-software-key-trolltech-keeps-coming-back/ I'm running their scans so will post back here if anything comes of it.
  7. Posted this on bleeping computer and they say it is sophisticated malware... check out this thread. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/535871/i-am-fighting-with-a-sophisticated-malware-for-weeks-help/
  8. Okay, Thanks to Hazelnut and Nergal. Just wondered if it was some insidious malware or something since I can't link it to anything.
  9. Hello, Pardon if this is not really a bug but the following obsolete software key keeps popping up for deletion so I do it and it is back after every reboot. Thought to try this forum first to see if anyone else has experienced this issue on Win 7 Home Premium. After googling. it appears it is a defunct patform of some kind. Thx. Obsolete software key Trolltech HKCU\Software\Trolltech
