Installed the digital Sony disk for the digital recorder Sony (ICD-P210). Returned the recorder that afternoon and uninstalled the program. I seems that Sony left an ET call home program. Files that I have been able to identify via the ZAS prog are as follows:
IcdSptSv module - c:\windows\system32
DvESetup.exe G:\English dvesetup.exe - - that is CD drive the origin of this file changed after I deleted the copyinf.exe files from the windows prefetch directory. There were four of the copyinf files that kept loading and ZONE did not stop the load or alert me, albeit that Program control is at high and SmartDefense at manual.
UnUsb.exe loads via the doc setting\user\local\temp and then disappears. Can t find nor delete it.
Wss.exe loads under the above captioned temp file as well, then either deletes or hides
UNINST.EXE loads via the C:\program files\sony\digital voice editor 2\uninst.exe - - the directory does not exist or at least will not show itself under any circumstances except in the properties window via ZAS.
In addition, there are a host of other temp files that I have yet to identify the origin.
ZAS does not detect the apparent root (regardless of scan method) Spysweep and Microsoft Antivirus and Spyware will not detect. Adware SE does not detect.
Sony has yet to respond.
Any suggestions absent a nuke erase, reformat and reinstall.
