    I think my spysweeper can find out the code for me once the stuff is on my computer :D. But the problem is that I am not sure how much I add?

    Take these 2

    Altnet
    c:\system volume information\_restore{244e073b-70b5-4faa-994b-3fe4ae3a5084}\rp303\a0105690.manifest

    c:\system volume information\_restore{244e073b-70b5-4faa-994b-3fe4ae3a5084}\rp303\a0105691.dll

    Metadirect
    c:\system volume information\_restore{244e073b-70b5-4faa-994b-3fe4ae3a5084}\rp307\a0108923.exe

    As you can see Alnet has 2 not sure what one to put in or if both? Also as you can see the numbers/letters are all the same in the brackets and it only varies after the brackets so do I put all the stuff in the brackets. or do I put all the stuff in the brackets and the stuff after it?

    Hi hoho,

    I'm not really sure what you would like to see added where. o_O

    But SpySweeper is finding these files in your Restore Points. Removing them would make those useless.

    To remove them, disable System Restore, reboot and re-enable System Restore. The method is described here: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001111912274039

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Well yes thier in my restore points. But they are spyware/adware. Call alnet and Metadirect.

    Description:
    Altnet is a program that is intended to keep track of uploads from Kazaa in order to reward people who are sharing content.

    And the other one I do not know what it does.

    But anyways my question was what do I add to spyblaster to make sure I never get that again. Because they somehow got on to my restore point. No clue how but they got their. Like in my first post. I asked what of that line of stuff do I put in?And If it is usefull you could put it in the next update. Because I have had kazaa for along time and this is the first time I have ever gotten this spyware.

    Altnet
    c:\system volume information\_restore{244e073b-70b5-4faa-994b-3fe4ae3a5084}\rp303\a0105690.manifest

    c:\system volume information\_restore{244e073b-70b5-4faa-994b-3fe4ae3a5084}\rp303\a0105691.dll

    Metadirect
    c:\system volume information\_restore{244e073b-70b5-4faa-994b-3fe4ae3a5084}\rp307\a0108923.exe

    Hi hoho,

    I think if you block the number in the brackets there you will prevent System Restore from working.
    So that does not seem a wise thing to do.

    Regards,
