I hope I'm posting this in the right forum. There are several issues pertaining to different programs for spyware/adware. I recently installed BHODemon20 (on my WinXP/Home pc) but I have no idea how to scan my pc with it - can't find any useful instructions on how do do so. I also installed noadware.exe and ran a check with it. Says it found 3 parasites in Registry as follows: Parasite: Location: Danger: 1stbar/powerscan HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/software/clRegKey severe TwainTech " " " " /mRegKey dangerous TwainTech " " " " /mRegValue " When I click on repair, it tells me I have to register the program and pay $29.95. I cannot afford this, and am wondering if there is anyway to manually search for and remove these entries from the registry? Also, why is it that "noadware" is the only program that shows these entries, whereas Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware do not detect them? their scans come up clean. Thanks so much for any replies.
