A friend of mine suggested I run a web based program called Housecall from Micro trend.

I did this and it found some "infections" that I was not famliar with.

The infections ( aka as greyware) had names like TRAK_*** and Ad_****.

Does anybody know anything about this program and these infections?

I exited the program without doing anything

Thanks

Read here about the 'Greyware' threat.

You should rescan with Housecall and let it clean whatever if finds.
