Forgive me, I posted in the wrong area. I reposted under Defender post. Sorry again.



Hello, I guess I am a cluebie.

At the suggestion of my local ISP, I am running Microsoft Defender and Adaware as my "antispyware"
Adaware catches most everything. MS Defender is catching a TV Media Display.

This is what my screen says:

Category:
Adware

Description:
This program has potentially unwanted behavior.

Advice:
Remove this software immediately.

Resources:
file:
c:\documents and settings\owner\Application Data\tvmcwrd.dll

file:
c:\documents and settings\owner\Application Data\tvmuknwrd.dll


When I go to remove it, it fails. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Defender. It still won't remove it. Adaware isn't catching it at all.

I talked to my ISP tech support and they said that the spyware can keep my Microsoft service pack from updating. Any help would appreciated.

Thanks,
Peyton

Welcome to BC!
See my reply to your original post:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/53505/windows-defender-catching-spyware-but-wont-get-rid-of-it-what-do-i-do/

Most members will not look for problems here in the Introduction forum, so your first post was in a more appropriate forum.
Regards,
John
