    After running an Ewido scan in Safe Mode, as requested by www.spywareinfoforum.com, I rebooted (Win2K). At the end of the boot, Ad-Watch Event Log displayed:

    Registry modification detected
    Root: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Run Value:Lewido
    Data:
    New Data: "C:\Program Files\Ewido Anti-Spyware 4.0\Ewido.exe" Minimized

    And it did this 109 times until I terminated it!

    What's going on here, and how do I correct it?

    About every 5 seconds ewido attempts to write that entry and Adwatch recognizes this. I am not an Adwatch user so can't advise what you would need to do concerning the logging of that item. However....ewido is aware of this matter and as noted below they are looking into this bug.
