Spybot caught a couple of potentially harmful things that were trying to enter my computer. I denied the entries, but did not write down what the programs were. Since these thing make no sense to me I deny everything.
I would like to Google them in order to find out if they were harmful.
Is there a log of some sort that I can review in the my Spybot program to see what they were, or does Spybot erase all traces of them if they are denied ?
