    Is there a list that shows which websites plant spyware when you visit them?

    Since the number of sites delivering spyware could be in the tens of thousands....would you mind providing just a little info so we can determine where you would like to head with this thread.

    Would those numbers (clsid's) you posted be in reference to what a program named SpywareDoctor is showing after a scan ?

    Yes they are from a SD scan.Is this a false detection?
    What do these clsid's really belong too?

    I can not say for certain....but chances are real good that they are considering all these same False positives that are showing up lately....along with False positives for the Keylogger you mentioned. I would suggest you download another similar program called Adaware for comparison and to also help confirm if these are or are not False positives. As for what do those clsid's belong to....they belong to a legitimate ActiveX component named MSINET.OCX.

    Download Adaware SE
