Hi,

Ran through the procedure followed by AdAw, and... bang! They're back!!! :)

Sheez! They're stubborn little monkeys!!!

I had also ran AdAw after the procedure before this last one and as suspected, CWS showed up... so i wasn't too surprised to see it again!!!

What to do, what to do? :tazz:

Here's the AdAw report from this round... cheers,

Copy the part in bold below into notepad and save it as fix.reg
Save as type:All files (The first line in the file should be REGEDIT4)

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\currentcontrolset\enum\root\legacy_*008f__6q*00d4*00f5*0013'*00aa*00b4*00c6*00d08]



Double click on fix.reg and let it merge with your registry.



wbemess.log is a log which keeps track of certain events. No idea why it is being picked up by Ad Aware as CWS infected. We can classify this as a false finding by Ad Aware.

Do you have any other issues with your PC???

Hi Tampabelle,

Thanks for all this... i've returned the PC now saying that i've done all i could and that it would appear to be well... Although I still feel a bit uneasy about this CWS showing up?!? I've told this chap to be very diligent and run AdAw, SBS&D, and keep his Norton updated... I might suggest downloading FireFox and Pheonix, or Netscape instead of using IE and OLx...

I've got another friends PC to mend but i'll post that under a separate subject...

Again, many thanks for time and effort.

John
