    Ran a scan today and for the first time it detected an infected file.

    Program Files\BroadJump\ClientFoundation\CFD.exe

    SBC says it is an internal file in the DSL connection manager and not spyware.

    Should I remove it?

    Please send this file to submit@ewido.net so we can analyze it and if it is really no spyware we'll put it on our whitelist.

    It could probably be a false positive.

    The program is not only not needed, it is probably unwanted. I have this information from a friend who does HijackThis analysis:

    QUOTE
    I have this, gleaned from AnswersThatWork :

    Bjcfd BJCFD.exe

    (BroadJump Inc, now Motive) BroadJump Foundation Client from BroadJump.com, now Motive. After reading the description of this product on the BroadJump website, it is clear that some of the functions of this software are what we call adware (software which collects information on your Internet activity and sends it to your ISP so that your ISP can serve you advertisements related to the type of sites you visit). This program typically gets installed when you install software from the Comcast ISP (which took over @Home and MediaOne), although at the time of writing, 31-Mar-2003, Comcast is not the only ISP which uses BroadJump’s software (Southwestern Bell DSL, BellSouth, Charter).

    Recommendation :
    We are against this type of spyware/adware software, as you know. Additionally CFD creates conflicts on Windows XP which result in users experiencing problems or lack of Internet access when logging off and logging back on as a different user. Again on XP, CFD has been seen to slowly but surely gobble up resources and memory, ending up running at 95% of CPU resources and an impossibly slow PC. You’ve guessed it : de-install "Broadjump Client Foundation" through "Add/Remove Programs" in the Control Panel, and/or disable BJCFD, or its newer incarnation, CFD, with The Ultimate Troubleshooter. Those users who have done so have reported no ill-effects whatsoever. You can also run Ad-Aware or Spybot Search & Destroy who will both rid your PC of the Broadjump software.

    ALL users who HAD this, then removed it, report NO connection problems.

    Bottom line, it is NOT required, and MUST be removed !
