Re: Strange rediff usernames in my system!

Yup..!! 100% Virus. I also faced this problem once. A user A/c named "internet" used to get created.

Re: Strange rediff usernames in my system!

I think, this is a major virus/hack issue. You should immediately install another XP/7 on other partition, and format the original OS drive after backing up all data from the new OS.
This may sound extreme solution, but why take chances!

Btw, still not understand why title of this thread says, "rediff usernames"!

Re: Strange rediff usernames in my system!

It means when i want to give my username in the username field, two other user names pop up (bjackson and richiert) in the username field.

U r using AVG...
I think there the problem starts...Please use a good a/v (full ver.)
Kaspersky, Bitdefender etc.

:lol: so you mean only paid A/V are full version & the free ones (like Avira, Avast) are crap product?

yes AVG is degrading. system heavy but still it got good detection. you speak more like Symantec's PM.

Reason I hate paid ones, they are typical bloatware. Take so much resource. And start up is a PITA.

This is again to build another A/v fighting thread..

Cool guys... if you r satisfied with the performance of your a/v, then it doesn't matter what others thinking

I will go for payed Bitdefender / Kaspersky

Free AVG realy sucks even free bitdefender is not a good protection

The virus must have crept very deep. Try system restore to a very old date when these werent there.

But format will fix it :))
