Does anyone have any information about an infostealer spyware called writetime_ch.exe? 

by on May 4, 2012

Q: Anyone have any information about an infostealer spyware called ‘writetime_ch.exe’ or where to get the info.

I scanned the driver installation CD that came with a cheap Chinese electronic gadget that I recently purchased. Norton Antivirus came back with the alert that it contains ‘writetime_ch’ infostealer. My google searches have not produced much in the way of specific information on it. I did not run the CD but would like to know more about this little extra that my smiling Bangkok salesman threw in with the deal.

Just use one spyware package to speed up your computer 

by on December 21, 2009

Q: I had webroot and Trend Micro Antivirus & Spyware installed on my computer. A power outage while upgrading webroot caused me to have to uninstall webroot and now I notice that my computer runs faster than ever without Webroot. Do I need to have Webroot and Trend Micro Antivirus & Spyware installed or can I just get away with Trend Micro Antivirus & Spyware?

A: You do not need webroot if you are using Trend Micro Antivirus & Spyware package. The reason for this is that webroot is a spyware package so if you have both webroot and Trend Micro Antivirus & Spyware then you will have two pieces of software running to protect you from spyware and this means more programs taking up the resources you have on your computer.
