Hi all, After recently getting reports from Spy Sweeper that I had AMECISCO keylogger and SearchForIt adware on my PC (PII, 256Mb RAM, Win 98, IE6), and deleting the reported files, I was keen to get a second opinion as to whether I was now clear or not. (I have now read here and elsewhere that this reporting may have been due to a software bug). Without getting into a shooting match over the merits of the particular software involved, I now have a problem with the consequences of how I went about doing that. After reading posts in several forums about how effective Spy Patrol was in hunting out keyloggers, I opted to take their on-line checkout. After downloading the necessary, I ran the program. Whilst it didn't turn up any evidence (other than the by now obligatory "unfortunately you have caught a dose of this-that-or-the-other" that you cannot remove without buying the product), it has left some unwanted components behind. These are austensibly meant to make subsequent scans more speedy, but without particularly wanting to buy the software, I don't really want them on my system. SpyBot says that I am giving home to: PPSDKActiveXScanner.MainScreen and ppctlcab These are reported as being ActiveX items and I would prefer that they were gone. Does anyone know that it is safe to remove then using SpyBot? If I punch in [contains] "pps" in the Windows search field, after 20 minutes it's still running - and just about every file on my system seems to be listed. Perhaps I had one too many beers during that session, but I really don't remember being presented with an "uninstall" option - and that's what I would like to do now. Can anyone throw any light on that for me please? Am I stuck with some potential spyware now, as result of trying to detect the very same thing? Any help on this would be much appreciated. Best regards, eljay.
