I was doing a Search in my XP-Home(SP2), the subject of my Search was Networking. Among other things the following appeared in the results :-

spybase p2pnetworking.spy

hovering my cursor over that entry produced :-

C:\Docs&Settings\All Users\Application Data\Acronis\Malwarebase

Type: SPY File 8.35kb


I am puzzled, is this a normal part of Acronis (which I do use regularly for backups), or should I be worried? I never ever use p2p type programs.

Doing a Google on this turned up nothing at all.

Hmm, wasn't really in a panic :-)

I found the answer in Acronis FAQ/Knowledge Base. It is a normal part of Acronis Privacy Expert which scans for nasties and deals with anything found. No problem.
