DDO devs are asking folk to check if they still have Pando Media Booster installed from previous downloads of DDO. If you do, uninstall it. Do not click yes to any update prompts for this program.

Details in this thread.

Doesn't surprise me, I was having tons of issues with the game itself because of it, got rid of it an all was good. Glad to see them post that!

Pando shut down its servers last August. There's no support for their software.

If you were prompted for an update, then yeah - you downloaded a virus.

One such bug is a browser bug, noted here: http://www.antivirus-blog.com/removal-guides/sweet-page-removal/

Ugh I was prompted for an update last night and exited out of it. This morning it took forever to start up my comp.

Thanks DDO. Sad

There is a note to uninstall on LOTRO as well. Its a Turbine thing not just a DDO thing.

I thought I removed it a few days ago, but apparently I hadn't. I did a mass uninstall when my keyboard broke last week and when that didn't work, I restored a backup. It still hadn't worked, remote session with Rareit noted that my keyboard drivers were faulty and he updated them for me. That fixed the problem but Pando came back.

Don't know if it's related but I turned on the computer this morning and started getting error messages about Pando's registry being faulty or something. Skype no longer signs in by itself on startup and doesn't even remember my laptop, and now I've got my computer prompting me to do a hdd scan everytime I boot.

I don't even care if it's not Pando's fault, I'm gonna blame it on that anyway.
