Again a download link for Sopcast:

I can't stress enough how much better this is than using flash players. If anyone is having any troubles, just ask.

Delete Delete Delete Delete. - These links need sopcast.

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES INSTALL SOPCAST!

The latest version of sopcast installs Trojan.Win32.Agent.ixj as detect by Kaspersky 7"

Of course if you read other reviews, you'll hear people praise Sopcast. Those are the people who are unaware of the harm being done by Sopcast. Unless you have a really sophisticated anti-virus program and full-service pc security suite like Kaspersky, you wouldn't know.

If you have already fallen for the trick and installed it then you NEED TO REMOVE it.

"Due to the complexity of this infection, we have classified it with an extremely high level of risk. If your computer has contracted Adware.Sopcast, it is essential that you take immediate steps toward tracking it down and purging it from your device. Delaying steps to secure your computer could result in serious loss of data or access to your machine"

Conclusion: You may be able to watch Chelsea. However - worst case scenario: Other people could be using YOUR pc as a host for child porn.

Do not think "I'll just watch the second half and then delete it", every second, every minute with sopcast makes it harder to remove and increases the chances of being infected,

Note to ADMIN - Please warn people against installing Sopcast in the headline of this thread!

Though I can't call you out because I do not know the facts though I am currently studying my bachelors in IT support. I find your post a tad ludacris. I've been using Sopcast for 3+ years and have never had any virus from it. The worsts it's done is give me the option to install a Ask Jeeves tool bar whilst installing.

I'll check your post after the game. And try dispel any myth. Then again you might be right but I find it hard to believe.

Also just did a scan on mine. No hits.

Because we are playing so poor I've already started looking around. So far I've found that AVG has a problem (or did) with Sopcast) though there was real virus but use to conflict with it because it is p2p.

Also just found this:

For what it's worth...

WMOE discussed the issues about Sopcast reported to him. Tokar uploaded the Sopcast downloaded files to some website and every virus scanner imaginable said it was clean. So Sopcast has no issues from that aspect.

I feel maybe Kapersky is having some issues with Sopcast just like AVG did.

I remain very confident that Sopcast is clean, and I will continue recommending it until proven otherwise.

Thanks for your reply. I have been in the computer industry for 33 years. I do, of course, admit that I could be wrong and I am only going on what the links and warnings about sopcast are telling me.

Undertow - sopcast.exe itself is probably not the problem. (That would be why it would be called a trojan).

Its

%UserProfile%\Application Data\PAV

%Documents and Settings%\[userName]\Desktop\Protection Center.lnk

And

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System ‘DisableTaskMgr’ = ’1′

See: http://www.spyware-solutions.net/adware/adware-sopcast-removal-guide

Furthermore:

http://pbm1986.hubpages.com/hub/Sopcast

Says "I tested Sopcast on one of my dummy pc's and immediately after downloading a tv show from another user, my antivirus program popped up with intrustion alerts and attempts being made to disable my firewall."

And "The latest version 3.0 have Trojan.Win32.Agent.ixj as detect by Kaspersky 7"

And "Of course if you read other reviews, you'll hear people praise Sopcast. Those are the people who are unaware of the harm being done by Sopcast. Unless you have a really sophisticated anti-virus program and full-service pc security suite like Kaspersky, you wouldn't know."

I'll listen to other views on this but if you google "sopcast adware" or "sopcast trojan" or "sopcast virus" you get an idea of the "state of the nation" on this one.

Just done another search on those file extensions you gave me and they don't seem to be present.

After doing another quick search I saw this on a "Sopcast User Guide" Link here: http://www.p2psports.eu/sopcast-guide.php

It has also been reported by some individuals that there are anti virus programs which pickup the Sopcast program as a Trojan, this is because Sopcast uses a communications port that some AV software see as a virus. This only seems to occor in the older versions mainly 1.1.2.

Hmmm. Poss false positive then - But not convinced enough to risk an install on my live pc. May test on an old stand-alone pc later. Interesting that there are so many links identifying it as trojan.

Very strange indeed. Maybe try use a virtual PC on VM-Ware. I'll be back next week, so keep me updated. :wink:

Spotting viruses reminds me of the old days in the 70's when we had to try and spot the West Ham faces in the shed. Trouble was most of our North Stand firm were unknown to the shedites so the common tactic against Millwall and West Ham was for the North Stand firm to wait by the Bovril tea bar staircase and the charge the entire shed when they reckoned there were enough enemy in there. Generally speaking everyone ran until the Shedboys realised it was Chelsea North Stand coming in at which point they'd turn and stay. In 1977 West Ham were on the receiving end of a brutal kicking down by the barriers. (I almost felt sorry for them but I didn't as they'd had a go at the Shed). A couple of local Fulham old bill "rescued" West Ham fans and then made truncheon meat out of them. (Local North Stand boys had gone to school with many of the local old bill and in the heat of the moment they always helped us out). After 77 West Ham never again tried to take the shed. Its the "El Alamein" of Chelsea folklore. In fact I suppose we could have called our North Stand "the Anti-Virus firm".
