    Hi all
    I have installed e-donkey latest version and it seems to have installed a directory under Program files called blss in which there is blss.exe.
    It apprears to be a spyware as each time I log on the internet it tries to access the web: I have used my firewall to prevent it from doing so.
    In any case, Spywareblaster does not detect it and it cannot be deleted by simply deleting the directory.
    I thought I would let you know and if anyone knows how to get rid of it let me know!
    Thank you
    Azraelle
