Webroot's Spy Sweeper software has identified CWS_tiny0 on my computer. Norton, Ad-Aware and MS Antispyware beta don't see it. Is it really there? Is it a problem? How do I get rid of it?

thanks, mike

Can you post back with the exact information given by PP? It seems to do a more complete scan than those other programs and often finds things the others don't.

I don't know what "pp" is for more informative scan. I can scan with Norton, HijackThis, webroot's spy sweeper, AdAware, or Xoftspy. Can also do a trend scan online. Thanks. Mike

Sorry, my bad. I meant SS (SpySweeper) not PP (Pest Patrol). What I would like to know is what did SS find? A registry key or a file? The full path would help a lot.

The cws_tiny0 refered to: C:\windows\wiaservc.log:nzxnq.

It seems to travel with a number of cookies.

Thanks for help. Mike

Won't SS clean it?

Try going to Admin Tools in Control Panel>Services, double-clicking Windows Image Acquisition service, select Disabled, Apply, and restart the computer. Delete the file, reboot again (Windows will replace the file) and set the Windows Image Acquisition service back on Automatic. Delete your cookies also.
