I had a VERY bad infection at the end of November that it took two days to clean up. I run Adaware and Spybot S&D regularly to check for anything new and just noticed today that I had two items in my ignore list on Adaware. They turned out to be Coolsearch and Clickspring. I took 'em both out, but never put them in there in the first place! A scan turned neither up. I checked the settings on Spybot S&D and found the same kind of thing, and after un-checking all products from the ignore list, a scan turned up a few items from MyWebSearch! I would suggest that everyone check their ignore lists immediately prior to running these tools. And don't forget to update the pattern files!
There are 10 kinds of people, those that understand binary - and those that don't.
