    Hi everyone,

    Giant AS is alerting me to the presence of BingoFun on my system. I believe it is largely due to registry entries for XceedFtp.dll . However, there is no indication that the BingoFun .dll is on my system. The XceedFtp.dll is present but I think it is probably being used by some other software on my system though I do not know which one. I am using:

    1) AceFtp
    2) CoffeeCup VisualDesigner

    both of which have Ftp components.

    I don't want to delete or quarantine XceedFtp, especially since no other anti-spy that I have is alerting me. Does anyone have any idea how I might track down which software might be using XceedFtp.dll? Thanks.

    Rich

    If the DLL is a module in a running process, you can track it down with DiamondCS's, Advanced Process Manipulation. Process Explorer also does this. An alternative for tracking active DLLs is PrcView, which works in conjunction with a DOS box, to provide txt files. All of these are freebies.

    Maybe I've misunderstood what you're trying to do, but I hope that helps.

    By the way, I've been trialing Giant AS for a couple of days and I have found it 'buggy', so best to double check things! ;)

    Hi TopperID,

    Thanks for the assistance. I will try to catch the xceed software when it is running, but I have not found it in an active state yet. It may just be a residule from some past program installation.

    I agree that Giant does give its fair share of FPs. At first they were quick to respond, but it seems like response time has slowed down quite a bit. They may be overwhelmed with questions such as FP problems. I run it once in a while and it catches some cookies. But mostly, I am getting FPs which is bad if a new user is not aware of this possibility. Not as bad as SpySweeper or Pest Patrol (on my machine) but they still exist.

    Thanks again for the help,

    Rich
