Cws shredder didnt find anything.And the link you gave me i downloaded,but its asking me to install Spyhunter.Is,nt that a rogue program.

I do believe it was removed from spywarewarrior rogue list,though i havnt checked lately.

I currently have Mcafee siteadvisor and it lists it ok.

Will have a look now,be back in a while Pac

click here it has been delisted,but not totally recommended.So i do apologise about the link.Will try to find something else.

I had a look on spywarewarrior as well.Even though its been delisted i dont want to use it.I really appreciate your help.

Ive had a quick look via Google,and cannot find another removal tool,there is the manual fix but this means deleting from the registry.....can be a bit dangerous.

If i do come across anything,il let you know Pac.

Did the Panda scan give the exact location of the file Search.exe?

It may be a false positive...........Search,exe seems to be a well known file so ALL decent antimalware scanners should pick it up.Especially the likes of AVG Antispyware,A2 and SuperAntispyware which are collectively as good as it gets with regards to adware/spyware detection.

Knowing the location of the file would help make sure.
