|I recently had to re-install Acronis Security & Backup after a registry clean as it was denying wireless connection to my router. During the install, SpySweeper flagged up a BHO that Acronis was trying to add to IE. I hit 'allow' and thought no more of it. However, after a restart the New Hardware wizard started and was looking for a driver for ROOT\LEGACY_ARRAKIS3\000. I googled this and found the origin is BitDefender, which tries to install an Anti-Phising toolbar into IE and also as an extension in FireFox (my browser of choice. One of the Acronis text files mentions subscribing to BitDefender Security 2010 as follows:|
"Not activating this software in xx days will disable all product updates. You can still use the product functions, but an outdated software will not protect your computer from newest viruses.
Activate your BitDefender now to have access to technical support.
myaccount.bitdefender.com enables you to retrieve your lost license key and to benefit from special BitDefender offers. Activate Now!"
I'm pretty sure this is linked to the problem. Also, Firefox has been randomly crashing ever since that restart (this is the second time I've tried to post her, the first time FF crashed whilst I was typing, although it's working fine now.)
I'd appreciate someone looking into this for me.
