    My free-version SpywareDetector program continually locates a file called zintro.ocx in the Windows\Downloaded Program files\ folder, and describes it as a high-risk, backdoor Trojan worm. However, zintro.ocx is apparently supplied by Microsoft and should therefore be expected to be innocuous.

    Can anyone please advise me whether or not I should be concerned by the presence of the zintro.ocx file on my computer, or should I ignore it? If the former, how do I succeed in getting rid of it?

    Incidentally, Spybot, Ad-Aware, and SuperAntiSpyware all failed to detect the zintro.ocx file.

    this forum is biased!
    please upload the file to Virscan and check to see if it really is a threat, you should know if it is from the results you see.

    And uninstall SpywareDetector as soon as possible . It used to be treated rogue software but I think you can never trust such a vendor/product .

    You are more protected by legimitated programs like the 3 you mentioned
