Okay, so here it is. I have a horde of CA security tools that that use almost everyday. they are the line of eTrust EZ products (firewall, Pest Patrol, anit-spam, and anti-virus). I run the anti-spam program almost everyday and have noticed a problem lately. there are a few files that it'll detect as spyware and delete but everytime it's done it'll request me to resart (not unusal). After i restart, the spywares are back again! I've tried going into the file that they seem to live in and deleting them manually but they're locked. Oh, BTW: this is my home computer. Anyway. each spyware file ends in a 0 or a 1 and has a hidden file of the same name beside it (I'll find out what the name of these programs are in a minute). I'm not sure but I think there are reproducing among themselves....like a viral orgy....and keep making copies of themsevle with different endings...any help or insight would be greatly apprecated.

(And yes, I know my spelling sucks)

Thanks,
Dementedsnake
