Ad-aware found these this morning??

  golfpro 09:42 29 Jun 2004

I ran my Ad-aware this morning as I have been having problems with Mailwasher etc. It found no less than 14 registry files and other files infected with something called "MediaticketsInstaller.ocx" linked to a "clickspring" whatever that is. I did a check in google and it seems it is "Spyware" of some sorts.
I deleted these with Ad-aware, but my question is would they remain in my registry or are they gone for good, if not what can I do to get rid of them completely.

AdAware usually does a good job of completely removing adware, spyware etc. If there is a registry entry it usually tells you so. You can prevent a lot of these things getting on your computer by using a HOSTS file. This contains a list of sites you don't want to download onto your computer, although this can cause complications. You can read about, and download a HOSTS file from this site click here. I have had a look and the HOSTS file from there includes

I just did a Google search for MediaticketsInstaller, and it found 3,630 references! It appears that have upset a lot of people.

Thanks Gongoozler, I will do another Ad-aware scan and then a reboot if it is still there.

Hi, has anyone had a problem with ad-ware hanging or freezeing on them, I have the latest full version and more often than not it refuses to respond, your help will be much appreciated.

Hi andy03. I've had no trouble with AdAware actually freezing. It does sometimes appear to do so, but it is actually deep scanning some files and folders, but leave it alone and it eventually finishes the task.

Thanks Gongoozler, I'll see how it goes.
Cheers matey.
