Hi all
I've recently downloaded adaware and spy bot S&D to help this comp

my virus scanner is detecting virus' with application names that use both adaware and spy bot in the names..

I'm wondering if this means that the programs are helping it to find them and then deleting them,or if these programs actually have malware attached?!

What are the paths to the viruses detected? That would determine if they were in the quarantine files of either Ad-Aware or Spybot. If you could provide an example, it would clarify the question. I have never read anything to indicate that either Ad-AwareSE or Spybot have ANY malware in their application downloads.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
