spyware in bios mobo
A while ago, I re-installed Windows on a friend's computer (an old P3).
When it was done (a clean install of Win98) it launched a to me unknown program called 'PhoenixNET'. This program could only be clicked away with ctrl-del. Every time Windows started, this program started and every time it gave error messages.
I surfed the net for information to remove this program but nothing!
I only read that it was built-in in the BIOS and that it was spyware (a 'service' from Phoenix).
And I couldn't find ANYTHING referring to it in the BIOS setup.
Eventually, I could click it a bit away (now it runs on the background).
so... if you need to buy a new PC mobo, you're warned.
And the canary said: 'chirp'
