You will probably be shocked to find it that it is malware itself…
MyPC Backup.exe Description
http://www.enigmasoftware.com/mypcbackupexe-removal/
MyPC Backup.exe is a dangerous executable file, which is related to malware, specifically adware programs. MyPC Backup.exe can cause data loss on an affected computer system or even damage the whole PC. MyPC Backup.exe is installed on the infected computer  without the PC user’s permission and knowledge. MyPC Backup.exe makes the targeted computer vulnerable to other security threats. MyPC Backup.exe can steal valuable confidential information and information about the browsing history of the victim. MyPC Backup.exe may change search results in any legitimate search engine with web addresses of sponsored websites and and divert victims to these doubtful websites. MyPC Backup.exe may also replace the homepage and default search egnine with the suspicious URL. MyPC Backup.exe repeatedly displays numerous bogus alerts/ warning messages on the screen of the corrupted PC about a variety of security threats and even advertise rogue security programs in order to remove supposed malware infections.
Type: Malware

Because you were able to install and run this it means you do not have quality antimalware (antivirus plus antispyware) installed on the computer or it would have immediately quarantined it to keep it from running and spying on you and running adware.

TYPE INTO SEARCH ENGINE…. “MyPC backup adware malware” and you will see valid reports fom known legitimate security sites reporting it as malwar as well as other sites such as security forums etc were other users have same problems.

RECOMMENDED you immediately install quality antimalware program and perform a full scan of the computer and remove all threats found in results. Becasue “MyPC backup” is rated as a high risk malware it may even block you from installing antimalware. The way around that is to either set the computer into Safe Mode With Networking and try installing and then perform scans. In Safe Mode only the few neccessary Windows processes load and nothing else which as well stops malware from running and allows for it to be removed. There is also the portable antimalware you can install on a USB Drive (not USB media stick – DRIVE – that is same price). You then run the antimalware from that to remove malware. SAFE MODE …. TURN OFF PC OR HIT RESTART. AS IT IS STARTING UP – KEEP TAPPING THE F-8 KEY TOP OF KEYBOARD. The PC will produce the black screen with options and choose Safe Mode. Do what you need to do – install scan, remove – and simply Restart the PC and will automatically start up in Normal Mode as regular use.

Check Threats and what they are here… http://bluecollarpc.us/threats-faqs/
Check all kinds of good well known and trusted antimalware products here …
http://bluecollarpc.us/help-center/
There are the many Genuine Freeware home versions of antivirus and antispyware but they do not have Real Time Protection (Sometimes called HIPS) activated like the full pay program which is about 40-50 USD (US Dollars) yearly. However there are just a couple free ones with Real Time Protection activated like pay products if money is issue. Real Time Protection (heuristics) blocks all malware from installing on the computer in the first place 24/7 – always running.
Malware is the term for all threats as virus, worm, trojan, adware, spyware, rootkit etc. Antivirus blocks/deletes viruses, worms, rootkits and most trojans. Antispyware blocks/deletes adware, spyware, keyloggers, dialers, etc and many other trojans antivirus misses. Spyware itself can have in its payload (malware package installed) – keyloggers which record all keystrokes on the keyboard. It can perform snapshots of your computer screen – what you are looking at. It can copy make copies of your files (photos, media, documents, etc) and altogether all things it is recording is broadcasted out to cyber criminals owning it which in turn generally go right to trying to perform an IDTheft from gathered stolen data from the PC including even financial stuff like logging into pay bills or buy stuff with cards etc any like passwords and pin numbers stored on the computer or recorded by keyloggers when signing in.

Q: I have a Zeus Trojan called w32.infostealer.zeus?

Fw: Yahoo! Answers: Your answer has been chosen as the best answer

http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/BlueCollarPCSecurity/message/3256

Q: I have a Zeus Trojan?
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20130722220727AAJJY0U
I have recently bought the game “Kerbal Space Program”, a somewhat popular game
where you have to build rockets to get to other celestial bodies. Well, many
people play it, and they don’t seem to have any viruses; it’s even on Steam.
Anyhow, my antivirus program (Webroot SecureAnywhere) detected a trojan in the
KSP (Kerbal Space Program) file. The virus was called “w32.infostealer.zeus”. My
antivirus program hastily deleted it, and did a reassurance scan to assure that
the trojan was completely gone. It apparently was, so I resumed what I was doing
before I had received the alert. That happened several days ago, and a few
minutes ago, I had received a second alert saying “Warning! Webroot
SecureAnywhere has detected a trojan! ‘w32.infostealer.zeus'”. The file location
was the KSP game patch file. How can I get rid of this trojan? I hear that it is
very dangerous. Please help!

Best Answer – Chosen by Voters

You have a world class top security program Webroot, which began as one of the
best antispyware programs world wide and towards the end of this past decade
combined with world class Sophos Antivirus which is big business/corporate
enterprise level protection and with Webroot is the only home user version of
it.

Just as a self replicating worm, this may be running an extra variant or even a
couple. With the self replicating worm it generally always takes two or more
scans and reboots to get all of it – and poof gone finally. I would not believe
you need anything more than the high quality security software you have
installed. No one may believe Webroot can not get rid of infostealer or the
infamous Zeus bot infection.

Try scanning and rebooting until you get no more warnings maybe the third time
is charm. painful aggravation and disruption.

You may want to put the computer into Safe Mode with Webroot fully updated and
THEN perform a full scan. Computer off or hit Restart. As the computer is
starting up keep tapping the F-8 key top keyboard. Black screen will appear with
diagnostic modes and choose Safe Mode. This only allows basic start up of
Windows processes and malware start up processes are not able to run. It is used
most times for security scans and safe removals unless trouble shooting other
start up software problems.

IF RUNNING WINDOWS 8…. you may want to install this ditty, works fine on
mine…
How to Make the F8 Key Work for Safe Mode in Windows 8
Booting into safe mode became non-trivial in Windows 8, especially if you were
accustomed to the old F8 shortcut. Here is how to get F8 working again.
Note: we aren’t necessary recommending that everybody make this change – we
are just showing that it is still an option. You can alternatively use some of
the new Windows 8 features to fix your computer instead. ….

The .zeus part of info stealer seems designating one variant rather than
indicating the Zeus infection. Info stealer is dangerous. Apparently if this is
the infection it is acting kind of as a trojan downloader or rootkit type
infection which is able to download more malware. It does not seem likely
Webroot can miss that evenm as a “backdoor” infection” . I read a little on it
and seems possible the associated website has had an infection which then when
the installed program does a kind of “call home’ it is a new infection and
possibly, possibly bypasssing detection as the program has been given permission
as a safe program as opposed to a PUP.

Yahoo Groups RSS Feeds down? Possible temporary maintenance?

Yahoo Groups RSS Feeds down? Possible temporary maintenance?

SPECIAL NOTE FROM THE GROUP OWNER…..

BlueCollarPCSecurity Yahoo Group
BlueCollarPC Security and Tech Help
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/BlueCollarPCSecurity/
RSS http://rss.groups.yahoo.com/group/BlueCollarPCSecurity/rss
It seems the RSS FEEDS for Yahoo Groups are either down and inaccessible for
temporary maintenance or for some reason have been discontinued without any
warning from the Yahoo Groups Service.

In all the years I have been a Group Owner/Creator, going back to when they
merged Yahoo Clubs with Egroups.com to form Yahoo Groups, the Yahoo Groups
Service/Customer Care has NEVER made such a change to service without official
posted notifications to the Yahoo Groups.

The orange RSS buttons are not visible. When using the RSS Feed URL (web
address) – it is redirected to an Yahoo error page “Document Not Found”.

If not up and running within a week, apparently this will be a first for the
Yahoo Groups to make such changes with no warning in advance.
