    Hello

    Not sure this is the right spot but since all I have by DCS on my laptop is PG
    I thought it could be ok.

    When vewing my system info I see two strange loaded modules.

    MD5.DLL & Xceedzip.dll

    After googling a bit I found MD5.DLL appears to be created by DCS.
    see link.

    System Info however says it belongs to Traction Software. Which takes me to a couple other sites.

    "But Traction Software knows better. With financial backing from CIA-funded In-Q-Tel and a recent half-million dollar deal with the Department of Defense, the Providence company’s blogs are receiving military honors."
    and of course their main page.

    I also see some antispyware showing it used in some spyware such as bruteforce.

    Now this second DLL is showing comming from Xceed software which Symantec says this DLL is some nasty also.

    My laptop = Mcaffee ISS beta, COunterspy beta & Processguard paid full version.

    Ok sorry you can move this thread!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I used Systernials Process Explorer to do a find of both DLL's and they both belong to CounterSpy.

    Now I still wonder why WIndows shows them as belonging to Traction Software & DCS?
