OS WINDOWS XP PRO
When ever I run ‘House Call on line scanner’it finds the following pests:-
1. PSPY_AGENT
2. ADWARE_FLASHGET
3. SPYWARE_KEYL_ASTLOG
4. TSPY_ANALOGX PROXY
5. ADWARE_BHOT_IEHELPER
Bit defender on line scanner and McAfee’s Stinger do not detect any of these.
I have installed and am regularly updating the following software:
1. AVG
2. Spybot S&D
3. Windows Defender
4. Ad aware
5. Advance Windows Care
6. Cookie Wall
7. PC Guard Firewall, Anti Spy ware and Pop up blocker
8. Microsoft updates and security patches are installed on regular basis.
None of these reports any problems!!!
I do run House Call in Safe Mode and after repairing reset System Restore. Thus lose all restore points.

I wonder if any of these pests are for real.Is any body else is geting these? Please advise. Thanks.

Come on guys. I am getting these pests daily. Keep running 'House Call' on line and cleaning thereafter. Re-runs not reporting any infections. Next day I get these again!!! I do not open Emails from un-known sources or not in habit of downloading unnecessary programs from the net. Any idea please?

Try turning off system restore before running a scan, turn it back on when your sure the nasties have been deleted.

Try running Panda online AV. That is a good tip to turn off System restore before scanning and removing then turn back on

Thanks for your response. I have just did what you both suggested and run 'Panda on line Scanner' which did not find any infecton. I shall run 'House Call' in the same fashon and will post the result. Thanks again guys.

After Panda AV I immediately ran House Call on line guess what it reported as usual which I did clrear. Hope this will be the end of it.
My question is, has anybody else tried running House Call on line scanner,if so what was the result???
