Ad Aware 6 question

  Rhuddlan 19:51 24 Feb 2004

After the search for sypware etc has been completed, do all objects pose a threat?.
For the past week now after scanning everday, I have found 5 objects, all the same results appear everyday:

1: Alexa
2: Coulomb Dialer
3 & 4: Kontiki, this is found twice, one next to the other.
5: ZeroPopUp

Never heared of these before, the location of all of them seems to be in the registry,
any ideas, Rhuddlan.

do you actually delete the ones it finds?

Your wise to ask , some things can show up and should not be deleted , for example Ad-Aware can pickup parts of Spybot-S-D , so always check to see where these files originate from on your machine.

With regards to the files you listed Alexa comes with IE but is safe to remove , the rest are trouble , Kontiki click here , Coulomb Dialer click here , ZeroPopup click here , all can be deleted.

Good news is with AD-Aware you can quarantine them , so if a mistake is made it can be rectified.

Try "Spyware Blaster". This stops most of this kind of stuff getting on your system in the first place. click here
