    I just did a scan with defs. loaded from april 7.
    I got this 19 issues, redirected to 127.0.0.1, so I think these are false positives.
    Any comment?

    Regards,

    Gerard

    ]I, too. keep finding MySoft in Spybot S&D .. and just read all the info about it being false positive .. GOOD:) .. but why doesn't anyting else find it .. the online free scans .. MS BETA1 .. hmmm .. BUT .. did sign up for beta of spy sweeper and told them about it before coming here:( ..BUT best that everyone knows! . .I guess:) ..
    I DID find it in my registry as I had found SPYWARE STORMER color] in there..that one AS did this one fall under a bunch of junk .. I removed Spy?? iGuard and ACTOR and has NOT come back:) . .but did same with this and DID come back into registery . as have a LOT of places I do NOT want to even discuss .. NEVER was I ever in those sites! .. YUCK:( .. AND they keep coming back . .I thnk I REALLY need to go back to reading and NO more computing:) . .
