    Hello.
    My question:
    When i do a onlinescan with Windows Live OneCare from their homepage, do i scan for adware/spyware and rootkits also or only for viruses and trojans?

    the reason i asked for this is that i see the top AV's as kav, bd, drweb and avira seem to miss alot of zlob variants and i think i am infected with zlob and microsoft and Eset seem to detect most of the zlob, and i thought i will scan online my pc, but i am not sure if the onlinescanner detects spy and adware also?

    What definitive proof is there that Dr. Web and Avira miss a lot of zlob variants?

    I think some of it came from solcroft, so the assertion is suspect. That is why I want proof and I am sure there ain't any. :)

    see solcroft post (5th one down)
