Anyone else with Quicktime installed get a flase alarm about CWS.Qttasks? Nothing from Adaware, Spybot or MS Antispyware....

Variant 21: CWS.Qttasks
Approx date first sighted: November 23, 2003
Symptoms: IE pages being changed to start-space.com
Cleverness: 2/10
Manual removal difficulty: Involves some Registry editing
Mimicking the legit 'QuickTime Task' autorun entry in the Registry (which is in the HKLM hive), this variant loaded at startup and changed only the Start Page to start-space.com.

the only sign i have of "infection" is the startupentry which turns out to be a genuine QuickTime entry. No other sympoms...

if i manually remove the QuicjTime startup enty CWS detects nothing....
