    Hi
    Dont suppose this is anything sinister ? ? Maybe just a bug ?

    An item in the Restricted Sites Protection list of SpywareBlaster -CoolWebSearch(233) - becomes unchecked when two traces - Registry entries - are found and removed by Spy Sweeper.

    This is one of the entries:
    HKEY_Users\default\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\internetsetings\zonemap\domains\coolwwsearch.com

    Cant find a reference to it in search.
    Any thoughts, please.

    Hi,

    This looks like a false-positive detection from SpySweeper - it appears to be removing a legitimate key that is part of SpywareBlaster's protection.

    You might want to report it to the Webroot folks - they should hopefully be able to fix it with their next update. :)

    Best regards,

    -Javacool
