Default Webwatcher

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to detect if this is being run on your computer?

Thanks.

Hi Madeline

Webwatcher is a programme that can be put on your computer and remain invisible and undetected. Apparently it doesn't show up anywhere. It is used to 'spy' on your every move; all emails, msn chats, sites visited, keystrokes etc can be viewed by the person who installed it through their own web browser anywhere they may be.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks a million.
Jo.

Are you trying to get round get round restrictions and/or monitoring of your PC usage by someone else? If so, by whom?

You can see if Webwatcher is installed by checking for exclusions in your antivirus software. Most antivirus software will find it and remove it, unless you make exceptions prior to installing it. Symantec Antivirus requires that you exclude C:\Windows\system32\config from scanning, and allow Spyware.Ultraview to run. These settings are set in File System Auto Protect, Exclusions and File System Auto Protect, Actions, Spyware. There is a also a "hotkey" sequence to bring up the administrative interface on the infected PC. The default is CTRL+ALT+CAPS LOCK. This is configurable by the person who installed Webwatcher, and can be changed after the install as well, so chances are good you won't be able to use it.

This thread is nearly two years old. Do you really think the OP has been sitting there waiting for a response?
