I have Fix-It Utilities for my virus protection. I don't know anything about the SBAMSvc except my 'NetDefense' eqivalent to 'firewalls' is asking me I will quote it. " if I want to allow SBAMSvc.exe is attempting to access the internet" Than i have 2
choices either I allow or I block it.
Sbamsvc.exe installs with Vipre Antivirus + Antispyware from Sunbelt
Software. Vipre is described by the author as follows: "Vipre combines
antivirus, antispyware, anti-rootkit, anti-malware and other security
technologies into a seamless, tightly-integrated security solution." It
is intended as a replacement for CounterSpy AntiSpyware. You'll find
more information at http://www.sunbeltsoftware.com/Home-Home-Office/VIPRE/
You should not have two major antivirus products on your machine at the same time
much less running as they can interfere with each other and actually lower your
Possibly Fix-It uses that as its anti-spyware module. Search for the file and find
out what program, if any, it is associated with by folder location.
Also check with Fix-it support.
Hope this helps.
