I was unzipping a file and noticed that in this folder:
c:windows\Appplication Data\Spybot-Search & Destroy\Recovery
There are zip files of all the spyware programs that Spybot located. There are more than one version of them and they go on as 1, 2, 3, etc. Here are some of the ones I saw:
Spy bot got hung up a few times when I was running it or maybe I did something incorrectly that kept these files out on my hard drive?
Should they still be there? Can they and should they be deleted?
One other question:
All my programs are running fine except my MS Word program. I have the MS Office XP Standard version.
When I had my spyware problems, I had tried to update a document in MS Word. It doesn't work now. When I click on New Document or try to go into it from the Start menu under Programs, the MS Word initial screen shows up and stays there.
The last time I tried it said there was a problem with MS Word and it was going to open it up in Safe Mode. In safe mode, it said something about doing a virus scan....??? and then got hung up and never finished anything.
I have to end task to cancel it and then I get the meesage:
NAVW32 has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.
PowerPoint, Acess and Excel start and seem to be working fine.
If you need me to to run another HJT report first, let me know. Thanks again!
