    I have Windows XP Pro x64.

    I've been looking through my Program Files folder today and noticed a folder that contains a program named Search Guard PlusU. I never downloaded this program. It's not listed in Add/Remove Programs or Revo Uninstaller and the uninstaller for the program doesn't work. I ran MBAM and it didn't find it a threat.

    I also found a folder in my Programs Files folder named SGPSA. Inside of it is a file named BHO.dll. I Googled it and found 2 references for it. One reference said it was a virus and another one said that it is a Windows file but that it should be inside of the Windows folder, not inside a folder in Progam Files. MBAM didn't see this as a threat either.

    Does anyone have any ideas about these two?

    Hello there! I am assuming you installed My Web Tattoo.

    First of all, tool bar's can be bundled within installers, so make sure you know what you are installing :)

    Secondly, I recommend posting a hijackthis log at a site like http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum22.html.

    When posting on the forums I suggest you include this in your message;
