Dear all,

Last night I performed a full system scan (Kaspersky Anti-Virus) and several files were quarantined.
Among them, the TTW.exe. I cannot open the Workbench any longer and I have work to do.
I do not recall the name of the virus (it appeared very shortly),but now I have a real problem.
Does anyone have any idea about how to deal with this?
Any help appreciated.

Thank you.

TTW.exe is not a Trados file Dec 3, 2005

Hi Eftychia,
Among them, the TTW.exe.

The executable file for Workbench is TW4Win.exe - TTW.exe appears to be related to a utility called "Tweaking Toolbox for Windows".

I don't use Kaspersky, but most antivirus applications have log files tracking any detected threats.

Best regards,
Ralf

Reinstall Trados Dec 3, 2005

Hi Eftychia,

Due to several probs with the program I've reinstalled it several times. Takes about 5 minutes.
Should sort your missing links.
