  1. Very upsetting Virus warning


    I just got a scammy virus warning. I don't really know how in the world I managed to step into this particular bag of doo doo, but I was using the Edge browser and I typed in the address for linkedin. I must have been off by a ltter because all of a sudden my computer made a noise like an air raid siren or an Amber alert when your phone goes off.


    Of course the volume was all the way up which, in itself is suspicious because I never have the volume up because I HATE IT when music will start playing for no reason. Anyway, I was able to close the window from the upper right corner I don't think I clicked anywhere in the message. Then I restarted my computer and emptied the cache and all my temporary internet files and garbage recycling bin. Everything appears to be fine, but I am not terrified that some trojan might be on my machine which is stealing my personal info....or something like that.


    The only reall info I was able to get from my recent history was this:


    In my history there was a link called "pcsecuritypro.com" /scan. index and "usd.khurshid zc visitor"


    I did not dare click on it to copy and paste the link....it was long. I cannot find out anything about this thing. Hence I am on pins and needles....like I need any more panic and terror in my life right now.


    Should I be panicking right now?? Just a total nightmare!!!

    :)

    Virus and Threat Protection Warnings

    Hi Penelope_AV

    ETD_GetSMART.exe is HP Software and it is safe, that software is designed to check your hard drive for imminent failure and warn you

    You can add that to the list of safe files in Controlled Folder Access to get rid of this warning

    Open Windows Defender Security Center

    Go to Virus & threat protection - Virus & threat protection settings

    Scroll down to Controlled folder access

    From there, you can add an app to the list of safe or allowed apps to prevent them from being blocked

    ETD_GetSMART.exe is located in the following folder:

    C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Support Framework\Resources\HPActiveHealth\Executable Agent Data\_Shared\DiskCheck\
