I don't know if pest patrol gives you the option to ignore that file or not. unfortuanately a lot of progrms use this file including WebHancer, a spyware program.

only suggestion I can make is to remove pest patrol.

Just to confirm what's been said

You could try Microsoft antispyware beta as you seem to have everything else

Sporder.dll definition, relationships, removal: Back to files sporder.dll description:
sporder.dll is a DLL used to investigate the LSP chain order. It\'s presence doesn\'t necessarily indicates a virus/spyware/trojan/adware presence. Any regular LSP makes use of sporder.dll during it\'s setup.
Investigate further to determinate any pest presence. You should not delete this dll, in fact deleting it could disable the correct install or uninstall of LSPs. Although related to spyware it\'s also related to normal software.

File sporder.dll is related to adware WebHancer.
File sporder.dll is related to NetSonic.

it sounds like your well protected. I've used pest patrol. I used it to clean up a pesky infection (e-universe). anyway I think spysweeper and counter spy are much better programs.

you can check here for more information. you should only use one virus program. ewido seems to be ok with another av app, but in general principal they don't play well together.

Antispyware apps on the other had are not that way. it normally takes 3 to clean a system. microsoft antispy is free and offers active protection. counter spy and spysweeper both offer trial versions (time limited, fully functional).
