    Scanned a friend's PC for the first time. Just clicking on My Computer on the left pane to select everything and hit the scan button. Just checking these processes are normal for Windows 95.

    Started memory scan
    ====================
    Running processes:

    #:1 : C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\KERNEL32.DLL

    #:2 : C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSGSRV32.EXE

    #:3 : C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MPREXE.EXE

    #:4 : C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\mmtask.tsk

    #:5 : C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE

    #:6 : C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SYSTRAY.EXE

    #:7 : C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ATIKEY32.EXE

    #:8 : C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SAGE.EXE

    #:9 : C:\WINDOWS\RSRCMTR.EXE

    #:10 : C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SPOOL32.EXE

    #:11 : C:\PROGRAM FILES\LAVASOFT AD-AWARE\AD-AWARE.EXE

    Memory scan result:
    Total modules found:11
    Suspicious modules found:0

    Other than that got "Total components found:0"
    Should Ad-aware be used with some other spyware program for a second opinion? Or it's good enough?

    I guess the question that comes to mind here is: If you're coming up clean on an AA scan (and you are definitely using the latest program version and reflist for AA), what's making you still think you may have spyware?

    If it's strange computer behavior or weird outbound message alerts from your firewall, the first thing I would do would be to totally update both my AV and AT programs (both engine - if needed - and definitions), set them to scan as deeply as possible ('All Files' 'All Extensions' and 'Max' heuristics) and see what the result was there.

    If you want to, you can also d/l , install and run the latest beta copy of SpyBot Search&Destroy, from here:
    http://patrick.kolla.de/software/files/spybotsd.preview.zip (that's a direct download link ). Take the time to study the documentation that comes with that and make sure you set it up correctly.

    Let us know what you find! Pete

    Yeah, but he could have also just clicked on the 'english' button in the panel to the left, and you would have got all that in slightly better english than that of the AltaVista translation machine :) :D
    Thanks anyway for posting the information here!
