Spyware Blaster
NIS 2005
Microsoft Anti Spyware
Spyware Guard

last night i was using windows explorer to find an HP program. ended up using the "search" option to help me. Then outta no where comes a Spybot alert window. the "allow/deny" change window. before i could react, MS antispy pops up saying it denied a change and disappeared. i looked back at the Spybot and not knowing what a bunch of numbers meant, i denied the change to be safe. i did some looking in Spybot and MSantispy and found,
This from MSantispy;

Internet Explorer Bar Microsoft Windows Shell Common Dll c:\windows\system32\shell32.dll has been denied permission to be installed. This program is in the user's blocked Explorer Bar list.

About Internet Explorer Explorer Bars: An Explorer bar (band) is a panel like the Favorites, History or Search panels that you see in Internet Explorer (IE) or Windows Explorer.
and this from Spybot,

9/4/2005 11:09:05 PM Denied value "{C4EE31F3-4768-11D2-BE5C-00A0C9A83DA1}" (new data: "") added in User-specific browser toolbar!

i pasted shell32.dll at Processlibrary.com and got this.

i ran Norton, MS, Spybot, and Adaware. Nothing found.
i was going to do an online scan, but i thought someone could direct me to one that would be the most applicable in this instance.

The pc seems to be fine. no issues, out of the ordinary. IE surfing is uneventfull. there has been this on going issue that i've been attributing to having only 192mb of ram.

the only thing i've done is dl CCleaner and a CPU monitoring program called CPUUsage from here.

BC Staff only pls,
there is one thing i have done that may be important. i don't want to post potentialy dangerous info here. if a staffer will pm me, i will explain

dont know where to go from here.


a2 online; nothing.

is it legit? i hope i'm not wasting bc time with this
