Ran spybot under my login and fixed. When my daughter logged in immediately after, there were many more probs. Normal, did I miss something in Spybot setup to scan all? Thanks

If I remember correct you must be an administrator for this program to work correctly.

Copied from link above:
There is a difference in scanning Internet cache and cookies between Spybot and Ad-Aware. Spybot only scans the current user's Internet cache and cookies due to restrictions in Microsoft's Application Program Interfaces (APIs). From posts I have read it appears that Ad-Aware scans for all user's cookies. However that does not explain the situation that you are describing.

Spybot will do a full system scan. It must be run in safe mode. If you are using XP Home, you must use the administrator account.
