Hi again BC

I had RegCure & XoffSpy installed along with AVG. When I scanned (daily) with AVG, I would always have 1 threat (regsver32.0xe). AVG would delete it but it be back the next scan. I uninstalled both RegCure & XoffSpy and installed AdAware. Now I scan with a "No Threat" result. I was suspicious because RegCure would "clean up" more than just the registry. Any reply?

hello

According to http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm they are not rogue spyware, having said that, the list hasn't been updated recently.

The reason ad aware didn't register a fault and the other product did is probably down to false positives.

I would recommend that you run an online virus scanner, just to be safe. http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Alan.
