    Please direct me to the right forum if this isn't. Thank You.
    I got the attached when I ran Spybot S&D.
    I have used the "screen capture" feature of PowerDVD recently.
    I am wondering if the "NetSpy" entries in Spybot are spyware or are just part of my PowerDVD program.
    Spybot had no information on these.

    Hi eingram :)

    I have SpyBot S&D and Power DVD and have never had entries like that before.

    The only NetSpy i know of is a Keylogger app. :eek:

    Here is some info,

    IMHO i would definitely have Spybot fix those.

    Glad you posted this one. It finally hits me that SpyBot would appear to be the root of this Netspy guy popping up as being caught by NPF upon system bootup. It does not persist. It is more of an initial nuisance message.

    I have AOL 9.0 and SpywareBlaster; I was almost about to give the blame to AOL 9.0 ... but not so fast.

    At this time, I don't see this as something that should be messed with. However, I wonder if there is a negative to its being caught by NPF, rather than letting it slide without warning?
