    Since yesterday evening (November 2:cool: when I carried out a full scan of my PC using AVG AntiSpyware 7.5 paid for version, I see that three items of spyware have been detected.

    I cannot find these or details of what these were.

    Quarantine is empty and there are no reports of any kind.

    What please should I do to see a record of what has happened?

    With the program open....select the Reports menu selection....then select the scan that corresponds to that time frame. From the right side box area copy\paste that info to a post Please.

    I have attached a print of the Report screen Bubba, but this shows nothing reported.

    What items have been found?

    If this is just down to the detection counter showing three items, then it could refer to automatic removal of tracking cookies, if you have that feature enabled in the Guard.

    Trackers automatically removed are not placed in quarantine, nor are reports generated for them.

    Many thanks TopperID for the posting. I hadn't thought of tracking cookies because usually Panda Antivirus + Firewall 2007 seems to get to spyware first. From time to time however, AVG Antispyware collects 2 or 3 entries, without showing what was intercepted, and presumably removed.

    Renewed thanks for putting my mind at rest.
