Ive just run a scan with Spybot and it found two entries by the name 'True Sword' and i have never heard of this.Ive never installed anything with that name.

Ive ran all other scans and they come up clean. Even the online scans.

According to Spybot its removed it, but im just wondering what this is, any ideas?

Thank you :thumbsup:

Googling "True Sword" produces a ton of download sites. Spybot lists it as malware. One bad review stating it was junk. You might look in your ad/remove and see if it is there. I would also run some scans with Ewido and an antivirus in case what Spybot found was dropped there by a trojan. Keep in mind that Spybot has been known to report false/positives.

'True Sword' is on the Spyware Warrior: Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware guide...... take a look ..Here
That may explain why 'Spybot' flagged it up.
