Hi Everyone.
I noticed something quite odd yesterday & am hoping for some assistance.
I ran a SyncBack Backup & I noticed that it had skipped over 3 files, so I went to go look at them & first off, I have no clue what they are & dont recall seeing them before but the extremely odd thing is that they show a creation date of October 10, 1618 ????????? What is that????
The Files in Question are:
I always run numurous Virus & Spyware scans & they nerver show anything although Malwarebytes,..yesterday,...came up with an Infected Registry key...
Name: Rogue.SpywareCease
Found In: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\RkHit

I dont know if this has anything to do with it...Im thinking not, but Im not much of a computer person, so Im hoping someone knows something out there.
I dont even recognize that lfa extention??
My system seems to be running fine other then a random IE flashplayer error occasionally.

Any Info would be so very appreciated.
Thanks All!!

The lfa extension is used by animation programs such as incredimail.

The SpywareCease application has been declared as a rogue program by a lot of anti-spyware applications although that may be missleading as there are mixed reviews on this matter.

Because it is relatively new may be the reasons for the detections as rogue. I for one believe it is rogue as legitimate designers would not use sneaky methods to get one to look at their software.

Use malwarebytes to remove/disable the program and see if it does the job. If not there is a free version of superantispyware that should work.

Change Is Good
