Har installerat senaste versíonen av ZoneAlarm.

Det första som händer är 16 "intrång" från TSAdBot görs på mycket kort tid. Jag godkänner inte dessa. Då undrar jag vad TSABot är för program?

Och kan man hitta en lista på andra konstiga program som man inte bör godkänna?

Jag surfar via ett vanligt modem.

Tacksam om någon kan svara på dessa frågor.

Lite info om TSABOT:

_______________________________________

TSAdBot, from Conducent Technologies (formerly TimeSink), is distributed with many freeware and shareware programs, including the Windows version of the compression utility PKZip. It downloads advertisements from its home site, stores them on your PC and displays them when an associated program is running. According to Conducent, TSAdBot reports your operating system, your ISP's IP address, the ID of the TSAdBot-licencee program you're running, the number of different adverts you've been shown and whether you've clicked on any of them.

 

The install program for PKZip for Windows 2.70 clearly states that the product integrates 'sponsored messaging technology' that will make use of your Internet connection and identifies Conducent Technologies as the source. It also describes precisely what information will be sent to the Conducent home site. Furthermore, PKZip's uninstall program removes TSAdBot, as long as no other programs are relying on it. Unfortunately, this degree of candour is rare; many other programs install and use TSAdBot without ever informing the user.

 

To see whether this program is present on your system, click Find on the Start menu and search all local drives for files named Tsad*.*. If TSAdBot is there, you'll find Tsad.dll in the Windows folder and Tsabot.exe in another folder, probably C:\Program Files\TimeSink\ AdGateway. Subfolders below this folder contain user profile information as well as the downloaded adverts.

 

If you want to remove TSAdBot, you must first uninstall all programs that rely on it. You're effectively paying for these programs by allowing them to show you banner adverts, so in all fairness, you should remove them. (If fairness isn't sufficient incentive, consider that these programs won't run in TSAdBot's absence.) In most cases, uninstalling the related programs will not remove TSAdBot itself, so you'll have to delete Tsad.dll and the entire AdGateway folder using Windows Explorer. Explorer may refuse with an Access denied message; in that case, restart Windows and try again. If you still can't delete them, restart the computer in MS-DOS mode and delete these files using the command line.
