RatingStarts up after installation of Microsoft .NET framework = completely harmless. Do check wether it resides in the right directory, if not remove it, if it does it's safe. BurningDog
Ratingwenn ein programm mit vb 6.0 fertig kompiliert ist, dann versucht das programm auf port 2150 als server zu agieren. ist mir schleierhaft, warum er das tut, vielleicht hat es was mit einem integrierten versionierungs-"teil" zu tun, das aber dann undokumentiert wäre. sollte das programm an anderen punkten auftauchen, halte ich spyware unter gleichem namen möglich. die korrekte app-version ist (bei mir für vb6sp6) 2001.12.4414.42, alles was nicht diese version trägt ist suspekt, alles was nicht den port 2150 benutzt äusserst suspekt. vb6 stört sich übrigens nicht daran, wenn man ms dtc aussperrt. ein vb-entwickler
