    Mine never done this, but Im running an older version. Bastards. Also I got a dose of that msbb.exe too, but it couldnt do its thing because of a firewall..

    Adaware doesnt pick either of these up [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    I always delete anything thats spyware, doesnt matter how cool it is.. If the bastards cant be bothered telling me they are gonna hijack my PC, then I dont wanna know bout it [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img]

    It was only a matter of time. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    Yankee, watch out about Morpheus - who knows when that codebase may include the spyware... [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    its code thats impregnated within a program that you download (usually free stuff) that tracks your internet/computer use. It then sends that information out to larger companies with very large databases for storing this info, that helps them market products and lord knows what else.

    They say that no personal information is transmitted, but I get the feeling that even if thats true, its only just around the corner.

    Thats a good link goo.

    Also, if you go to www.shareware.com and search for spyware, there is a program out there that scans your computer for spyware for you. Its free, so it probably has spyware itself [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I've seen that! Although I think it was beer, not a virus, because I woke up on the floor a few hours later. [img]smilies/scared.gif[/img]
