Hi, just found while running the tools section of counterspy to see what was running that there was a program called camerafixer.exe running. Also a program called LightScribe by Hewlett Packard. I do not remember installing anything like this and am worried they are spyware programs. They are both running at startup and dont appear in my list of programs that I am able to remove :thumbsup:

"LightScribe Frequently asked questions"

Should be located in C:\WINDOWS\CameraFixer.exe. If you right click on the file you should get:
CameraFixer.exe -
The version is 1,0,0,2
Copyright © 2005
Company - Its empty
Product name - CameraFixer Application

Do you have webcam or digital camera software installed? It could be related to that.

To ensure its not malware related, you can submit it to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
Post back with the results of the file analysis.
