How were Isas.exe and Auds.exe installed on your computer?

There are many ways the Isas.exe and Auds.exe viruses could be installed on your computer.  One way is through scam e-mails. They usually seem attractive with their catching titles/subject lines, but they are only made to captivate your personal files. Sometimes you might have signed up for a newsletter from certain webpage, but then later one you decide to unsubscribe yourself. A month or two passes and you don’t receive anything from this company/webpage. Eventually, though, you start getting e-mails from them again. However, if you pay close attention you will notice that there is a missing letter and/or word in the title/name of the company and/or the e-mail address is not legit. This is what a spam e-mail looks like and how easily they are distributed all over the cyberspace!

They usually are the most attractive of all ads and often offer free things. The bottom line of them is that “there is no free lunch” because if you click on one of them it will not only regenerate more pop-ups, but you will get a virus on your computer. Avoid them at all costs and quickly close the window you’re using!!!

Bundled  Software is another popular way for getting the Isas.exe and Auds.exe viruses. We all download files randomly and probably more often than we desire. The cheaper the download, the better.

Best way to avoid that is to use the advanced settings and carefully selecting what you want and/or don’t want and how to be installed. If you could scan the downloadable files, even better.

  • Hi Oliver,

    These sites are well known to have connection to different type of Adware installers. I recommend that you delete all of these lines, then save the changes to the hosts file. Please let me know if you need more help.
