A virus and malware cleaner is generated for a personal computer. Scanning software determines the presence of suspicious attributes resident to the computer. When automated detection of the need for a Custom Cleaner occurs, specific system information, along with information about the suspicious attributes, is included in a Custom Cleaner Request. The request is automatically generated and transmitted to a server for processing. In response a Custom Cleaner may be automatically created from a database of parameterized instructions, then downloaded to the user's computer for execution. Automatic verification of the Custom Cleaner success in removing infected files may be sent to the server. In the event that a Custom Cleaner cannot be generated automatically, an escalation occurs in which a support technician becomes involved in preparing the Custom Cleaner. Escalation data accessed by the support technician may include automatically generated diagnostic hints.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
