Hi, I have the same problem (Troj/Spywad-B). I did a search and it seems that only 2 AV Programms know about SpywadB:
http://www.sophos.co...rojspywadb.html

and

http://www.nod32.lu/...ts/products.php

Sophos AV is not available online, I registered for an evaluation and they sent me the link to download it. I installed it, but I can't run setup becaus there seems to be some problem with the system (works only on Windows 95/98/Me, NT 4 SP 6 or higher, 2000 SP 3 or higher, XP SP 1 or higher, or 2003) Seems to me it should work. I have XP (I don't know what SP).

So I can't use it, for now.

NOD32 works, but I could only update it at installation, after the required restart it says it is out of date and I can't update it (nowhere to click on that). It discovered something, however, but could't open a lot of files and could't fix anything.

So it's not good neither.

What was your solution, actually? Did you fix the register using the link posted by Cretemonster? I didn't exactly understand what to do, (which reg file should I download to the desktop and where should I double-click) please write me an email .

Thanks.
