Prevx identified my laptop tracker as a virus !! ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Try this download...

Now I can see where this might happen but for a tracker that's been around for at least three years I find it hard to believe that an up-to-date antivirus package should do this.

excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is a laptop tracker?

I'm sure if you use it it has value. I'm just curious.

Y'know - like "ET home" ...

It's a 'phone home' doobrie.

If the laptop gets stolen, as soon as it connects to the internet it sends an email to you. It's like your very own invisible dialer virus!

I've got a Gmail account for just receiving emails from the laptop. It sends an email every time I connect to the internet, presumably just to reassure me that I am still alive.

It wasn't installed in the first laptop that got stolen, so that wasn't much good.

It was installed in the second stolen laptop, and DID email me which I passed on to the Cops. The guy was traced but poured Guinness into the lappie just before getting arrested!

This laptop is so far a non-drinker. :)

::: Mind you it's just a bog-standard lappie so not likely to get stolen.

BOTH the stolen ones were Rock Xtremes and highly stealable, more is the pity.

Prevx should find remove
Here's where you can first try the free scanner and then get the full version if it finds it:

I believe it is a varient of Worm.Autorun.Dcz.

I hope this helps.
