    Anyone know about two items below, that SpyBot highlighted in a scan, today? The 2nd item, oddly, is just a desktop icon for the ATT dialer, which I seldom use but this is about the 2nd time that SpyBot has for some reason pointed it out. SpyBot had previously termed the dialer/icon "InterSysInc..." whatever that may mean.
    Was bit more worried about the CoolSearcher info, as I'm not familiar with that product. (Otherwise, though, TrojanJunter, Nod32 and Hijack This found nothing to be alarmed over).
       Thanks, for info/advice. SG1 (Pat)
    Congratulations!: No registry inconsistencies were found. ()

    CoolSearcher.Info: IE toolbar (Registry value, nothing done)

    Unknown: Desktop icon (File, nothing done)

    The {8E718888-423F-11D2-876E-00A0C9082467} Class ID is identical to that of the IE Radio Bar, although that one's habitual location is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar

    It may be a False Positive, although you can't exclude the possibilty of this CoolSearcher hijacker using the same Class ID

    The AT&T shortcut is a FP for sure.

    For the time being I'd have SpyBot ignore both.

    And you may want to post at the SpyBot board: http://www.net-integration.net/cgi-bin/forum/ikonboard.cgi?s=85b016705c3f1f3bf33b9c71d63d21d6;act=ST;f=24;t=5404

    Can't hurt to include a link to this here thread as well.
