    I know this could sound stupid but there is a program with what I don’t know what to do with. It is located in Internet Explorer Downloaded Program Files and it is WUWebControl Class. In atributes it says that it is created in 2004, so for quite some time ago. I haven’t noticed it before, but know I got a bit scared because I don’t know what exactly it is doing.

    P.S. This is offtopic but could you please tell me is NetPumper http://www.emsisoft.com/en/malware/?...stry.NetPumper also collecting passwords and what is Server-driven bandwidth control. And when I found antileech plugin helper program and deleted it from firewall settings then eTrust Pestpatrol trial version found Anti-Leech Plugin in hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\anti-leech alie

    Is this a false positive?

    I have already talked too much. I thank you all for any help that you could give me.
