Help deleting Spyware

  Thomo1 00:21 18 Mar 2005

Hey all.

Spysweeper will not detect it. Adaware will not detect it. a2 will not detect it and Spybot will not detect it.

BUT my NIS 2005 AV scanner DOES detect it.

Adaware.BargainBuddy.exe. It finds it in file - ccsetup116.exe.

BUT it wont remove it for some reason. Tried to follow the manual instructions from the Symantec site but got lost deep within the registry. lol

Could some1 plz assist me with this 1??

ccsetup116.exe is a CCleaner installation file which you must have kept on your hard drive after you installed CCleaner. It sounds like a false positive but you should just be able to delete the file.

nope NIS says the file is a high risk threat but it cannot remove it.

Have you installed CCleaner? If so, can you locate where the ccsetup116.exe file is by going to Start\Search. When you find it, try to delete it.
