Hey , just wanted to let people know my recent experience with * SaveAs.exe "Moshe Karaso". I don't know a thing about comps but when I got my first desktop just recently I soon noticed something wasn't right. Basically I started having probs with start up and other things like my fire fox , spyware were now turned off but I couldn't turn them back on when I tried yet another part was telling me everything was fine. God damned nightmare.It wasn't till I saw another Norton window pop up telling me to install Norton 360 again and when I looked at the VERIFIER it said MOSHE KARASO with the saveas.exe which I thourght twice about and wondered why it didn't say Symantec or whatever is the company that makes norton.... I still clicked on it anyway (stupid now I know) and eventually things got so bad I thought my comp would crash (over 2 WEEKS). It wasn't till I tried to remove Norton 360 and then reinstall that I had some real probs. I saw that there were two versions of Norton 360 wanting me to run them and I ended up figuring that I had to go into my downloads and delete anything that that said Saveas.exe or Moshe karaso like the fake Norton window. I then went into uninstall programs and saw again the SaveAs.exe . My comp shut down and I freaked but it came back on eventually and has been running beautifully since. I have had to reinstall a few things ofcourse but most of you would know that unless you are just playing a guessing game. I thourght it was pretty serious anyway... a fake Norton 360 wasn't what I expected . Don't trust Moshe Karaso !!!!

@Andrija: Unfortunately I don't have any additional info than the DrWeb article I linked to above about the purpose of SaveAs.exe file and what it does to the computer. However, some of the anti-virus programs report it as a threat so I think it should be removed.

If you like I can review your FreeFixer log to see if there is anything else that should be removed. You can post your FreeFixer log here:
