I'd update my old one but it is so far back in the pile...
Alyon Trojan horse:
May be present on web sites attractive to children, ie; game tips, "improve" or update your game, game (censored)
Remove Trojan horse parts either manually or by software listed in other filings on this website. NOTE: I found more than just the IEAccess/IEAccess2/IEDisco parts. Also found were the ScratchandWin and I lookup parasites.
I feel that these others came in when the Alyon website was contacted by my son's computer. Took me a couple of hours to clean the machine. The crap hides all over the place!
Received a letter from the State of New Jersey Office of the Attorney General today reminding me to REFILE my complaint with Alyon at this address:
Alyon Technologies, Inc.
PO Box 6049
Elizabeth, NJ 07207-6049
I've sent letters to 4 of the 5 of the addresses I have for them so far. The most recent were on 8/3. Best money I've spent!
Called Merchants' Credit Guide Co. today (collection agency) about their client and the court order. I was told that "Alyon was vindicated by the court order". I informed him that he was misinformed. He said he had a copy of the court order in front of him and he has done research on the internet about the "vindication".
I also told him that I have sent numerous letters to Alyon with no response and they were in violation of section 5 of the FTC Act-Deceptive Practices + Unfairness, Pay-Per-Call Rule, IV B and C or D in addition I've contacted the FTC, FBI, FCC and will contact the judge that issued the order. I also told him that his company had better "chill out" until this ends because they will be in as much trouble as their client when this is over. He mumbled something and hung up on me.
MY ADVICE: Contact Alyon as soon as possible, certified, return receipt requested. Clean the computer but try to save the Trojan horse pieces to floppy or CD as evidence (I didn't).
Keep a file on everything you receive from them INCLUDING ENVELOPES. My first bill was due 2/19 but the envelope was postmarked AFTER that date. Keep a copy of everything you send to anybody including all receipts from the Post Office, the green cards when Alyon receives your letter, everything.
Go buy a cheap file/envelope to hold all of this stuff. You may need it (The Attorney Generals Office suggested "You may wish to consult with a proivate attorney before making your decision to ensure your rights are protected."). REFILE YOUR COMPLAINT TO THE FTC AND ALYON TO PARTICIPATE IN COMPLAINT RESOLUTION ESTABLISHED BY THE FEDERAL COURT. The addresses are as follows:
The Federal Trade Commission Alyon Technologies, Inc.
Consumer Response Center PO Box 6049
Alyon Matter Elizabeth, NJ 07207-6049
600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW H-130
Washing, DC 20580
