Hi all, This is one more that I'm making a best-guess about where to post the question -- I promise not to blink too hard if it gets moved. I make a point of running disk cleanup after coming offline -- and of taking a quick look in Downloaded Program Files while there to see what's currently there, since if a dialer should slip through then that's where it would typically wind up. One item currently showing is CDownloadRegistry Class -- it struck me as oddball only because there's no copyright or other company info in its Properties, which is unusual for an app in this location. AdAware and avast scans found nothing, and SpywareGuard hasn't kicked out any warnings. And the Task Manager isn't showing anything active that obviously ties into it. Anybody recognize this? I did a DogPile search, and while I didn't follow more than one or two of the references it turned up, they all seem to be service- and security-related forums like here. Probably nothing to worry about, but of course I wouldn't mind getting that confirmed, with additional testing if necessary. Thanks and best, Mike (Edit) A typical "oops, forgot" -- I'm using IE-6 under XP-Home, both with all critical upgrades. And SpywareBlaster's installed too, although if I understand correctly that one wouldn't "say" anything because it's not an active process.
