Just thought I would give you guys a heads up about this thing. I was on Yahoo's site a while ago and all of a sudden my browser quit working (it gave me the page cannot be displayed page whenever i clicked on links). I noticed some new links on my favorites that I didn't add, and there was some sort of screen saver program that had been installed, as well as a few new icons on my desktop. All of this happened within a few seconds and I was unable to access the internet because it gave me the page cannot be displayed thing. So I did some digging and found a thing called SahAgent that had been installed...I deleted it and all is well. Have you guys heard of this? How can I prevent it in the future?

Is all forms of sahagent from kazaa? My uncle has two files left on his pc i am trying to remove. I dont' think he has kazaa so was wondering if that is the only way to get it or some other download? I better go call and ask. ha,,
He has the sahhtml_.exe and the sahagent.exe. You delete and they come back with restore off.

Well just called him and before he called me for help he had run spybot and i just asked him to search kazaa and they were quarantined. So yes he had kazaa on his pc. So my next question is, can it get put on ur pc without you manually installing it? Cause he says he didn't install it but yet he might not know exactly what he was doing? Just curious, thanks,,,

Thanks for the link. He says he didn't download it. I wonder if it definitely has to be downloaded or bundled with some other download and you aren't aware of it? Just to prevent this from happening again. Alot of problems with this kazaa thing. thanks for info....

Spyware is always installing without you knowing it. And some particular programs have it loaded with their software. Half the time you don't realize until you go back later and look.

P2P programs, like Kazaa especially, is bundled with spyware.
He should definitely get rid of Kazaa.

Thanks for the info. Kazaa is deleted. I am going up to visit him and will remove the last of the sahagents. It's hard telling him over the phone what to do. haha,,,Take care!!

There is the link to his hijack and all. We thought it was clean. Then My uncle called me a few days later when norton ran and it found the sahagent. I don't think it showed in the beginning of this but I can't get rid of the last two sahagents. I don't see them in his new hijack but maybe there just dead files? We ran housecall and it said no sahagents. When we run norton it says, two. We run spybot,adaware,killbox,all updated and say clean. So who knows. I have his latest hijack if you want to take a peak? ;)

I know we went into safe mode for something but we did so much can't remember. So i am goin down next friday and fix it. He lives a few hours from me. So gonna visit and spend most infront of his pc. haha,,,So will try safe mode then. My concern is the warning of disabling network connection. He has wireless which i know nothing about and i don't know if these two files cause the affect or not? The last i saw they were in the downloaded program files folder and were sahagent.exe and sahhtml. So I will post back after i am done next week so you can see the outcome. thanks again.
