Compatible with all Microsoft products and third
party applications, RegCure seeks out those remnants
left behind on your registry from failed
installations, incomplete un-installations, disabled
drivers, and spyware applications.
– if your system has a process with the title macromedia.exe
running then it is typically a sign that it has become infected
with the Aozo worm. This worm is spread via the popular KaZaa
file sharing network and through poor security settings.
macromedia.exe is just one possible name for an infected file
that is usually found within the KaZaa shared media folder.
There are many different file names that may be used and if
there are files within this area of the KaZaa folders that you
do not recognize then you should scan your system for infection.
While it is not particularly sinister in its payload the Aozo
worm will almost certainly cause a drain on system resources and
once infected you may be inadvertently spreading the virus to
other KaZaa users. The instant removal is advised because it can
be used to exploit further security weaknesses on your system.
– A slow running PC is generally caused by the existence of a
large number of files or folders. Because the Aozo worm attempts
to copy itself onto your computer with a large number of
different file names this is the most likely symptom. Another
obvious symptom is the existence of files that you do not
recognize within the shared folder of your KaZaa application.
– Aozo can be easily removed using antivirus applications and
other computer security suites. Ensure that your virus or
signature database is up to date and then scan your computer to
find any infected files. Once located clean or remove these
files completely. Ensure that your system security settings are
updated once your system has been properly cleansed. This
prevents future infection.
