Adaware 6 - Please read urgent help needed...

  Gaz 25 01:41 17 Feb 2003

I know there is a peice of bad Spyware called xzoomy (FreeScratchandWin), I have fully updated Adaware, Spybot S&D, Spyware Blaster and Flamewall SpyRemover.

None of them detect it, even though in their search includes it does say it finds xzoomy.

During the scan by Adaware it waits a little on file in the Internet Explorer area and I ma not sure if it is in the registry or hidden amongst all the files on my C: Drive.

See a screenshot now click here of Adaware waiting on it.

Please help?

It has not changed my Homepage or anything and nothing detects it, anyone else have this file show up in Adware?

Have you tried 'xzoomy' under 'search'maybe you can delete all the files from there.

I will not worry no more.

Only thibg is if they put a stop to spyware and Hijackers and BHO's we wouldnt have to worry.
