so i ran spybot s&d yesterday and it said it found blackcore which is a trojan/cookie. it has not shown back up but i am still freaking out. i check the running processes and i found spoolsv.exe which i read was a worm. i did a computer search and i have found the file in windows 32 and windows/softwaredistribution/download. is there way i can make sure the computer is safe?

spoolsv.exe is a Microsoft Windows system executable which handles the printing process. Not a worm.


Blackcore is a tracking cookie. Nothing to be worried about. Do you use FireFox to browse the Internet?

The BlackCore detection that was found is a Firefox cookie not a Trojan.

Was Spybot able to remove it?
