hi all, i have just done a fresh reinstall of XP this weekend and today i updated and ran spy sweeper. it found one item sdbot as adiras.ini http://img443.imageshack.us/img443/4303/spysweeper7hx.jpg adiras.exe (any relation?) is on my startup list and after googling i found that this was related to my adsl modem (usb). Is a false alarm? thanks betauser2 Note there are two traces of this the second on my Firstdefence-ISR snapshot.
