    More scanners add NTFS ADS streams to files on the system, to compare them with new values in a next scan. Smaller then 200bytes you can ignore, guess they're all around 88 bytes?
    Let them be, as in a next scan they will be re-created.
    If they're larger or cause other problems have a talk with Gavin and DCS team whan next. I remember we discussed exactly those things a couple of months before, but not all sure about the outcomes of that discussion.

    Hi Jooske....ran a tds scan with it set to ignore below 200 bytes and found 20+ consisting of 228 bytes...i know some are ok with that......ran second scan and TDS listed all steams, lots of 68 bytes, and again had it set to ignore below 200 bytes .... it ignored nothing :p stopped scan after 1 1/2 hours as it was only up to the B listings in Program Files.....had all unneeded processes turned off o_O .....i don't suppose there is some little app out there that will quickly find and dump those files ?
