Here's one for the record books.

I have SpySweeper installed, and recently, I'm getting constant pop ups from it stating that it's blocking access to several spyware websites, but yet I have nothing to cause it. It happens whether or not a browser is open. I've scanned with Trend Micro's HouseCall, McAfee Anti-Virus, Spybot S&D, HijackThis and Webroot SpySweeper. None of them have found anything.

I have downloaded MS's Network tracking program, but it doesn't give me a name of a process. Not even Process Explorer shows anything...

What else can I do?!?!

I woud try Un installing it from Safe Mode. then reboot and install again.

SpyBot's Tetimer function may also be in the way.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
