    Okay, this is the second time Ewido has displayed this 'adware' :

    The 1st report was the same. I ensured Ewido Ignored the entry. I scanned with adaware SE personal - came up clean. Then scanned with Spybot S&D - came up clean. AVG says I am clean (though I know this is a virus scanner).

    I then looked in my registry, and yes aksoft is there, and the program it points to is one available from sourceforge at the follwoing url:

    http://xtractor.sourceforge.net/

    It is a mp3 conversion program, which allows you to convert cds to mp3 format.

    So i uninstalled the software, and the registry key removed - with just aksoft folder remaining when looking at regedit.

    So this is the software that Ewido is pointing to.

    Now my question is - is this a false positive ? As other programs have found nothhing untoward, and I have not noticed any abnormal activity on my PC.

    Many thanks :)

    Edit: Just completed more scans:

    Counterspy - clean
    A-squared - clean
    Symantec Online scan - clean
    Panda Online active scan - clean
    Kaspersky online scan - clean
    Windows Defender - clean
