Recently I ran a scan with spysweeper and it showed coolweb search and CWS variants.Deleted and still had after reboot.Freaked and ran free scan by NoAdware.net.It found numerous "Dangerous" infections.Mainly referring to WebPi applications,I believe.(key loggers,screen shots,whole nine yards)Really freaked.I was running ghost surf 2005,spysweeper,mcafee antivirous suite-although last one was expired a couple weeks.Anyway somehow I came across files that were password protected supposedly.I deleted manually.Then wiped drive.Relegated computer to games only since it was time to upgrade anyway.My question is:Has anyone heard of the WebPi false positive with NoAdware.net?>I did a little research on them and they are questionable at best.Also ,can WebPi be installed without physical access to computer?Can it be installed through a backdoor remotely?Thanks :thumbsup:
