Hi

I have just run NoAdware on my computer and it threw up a report saying that it had found the file - System32\dllcache\svfile

It said that it was "serious"

What is this file and should I delete it.

I have my doubt.

Regards

The programme you should be running is Ad-aware - download the FREE version from this website
click here
Also download and install Spybot Dearch & Destroy also a free download from this website
click here
and also download, install and run Spywareblaster v3.2 from here
click here
That should keep your PC clear. Leave the file No Adware found until you have run the other programmes.

Thanks for your reply.

I have the programmes you suggest and the file in question did not show up on them. That's why I said "I had my doubts"

Do you know what the file is??

No Adware I 'think' is a rouge application - I wouldnt delete the file.

Thanks for your input.

I think you have confirmed my suspicions.

Will delete the programme when I get of the net.
