    I'm finding that ewido does a very thorough job of detection, but it seems to come up with quite a few false-positives! Of course I can't be sure about that, but in the short time I've been using ewido it seems to be the case because followup scans with both F-Secure AVCS and SpyBot do not confirm some of the embedded malware frequently reported by ewido.

    While I consider myself a savvy PC-user I am new to ewido, so any feedback on this issue would be appreciated.

    Could you post an ewido log file coming with the specs?

    I will try to do that the next time I experience (what appears to be) FPs.
