I downloaded and ran Spyware Blaster from the Webroot site. I got a return that Cdilla was on my system and was flagged as High Risk. I have no idea what this is? I have the latest Ad-aware SE and Spybot S&D installed and neither ever return anything that concerns me (no mention of anything called Cdilla). Virus scans are run weekly and also nothing is ever found. I went to MSconfig and clicked the Services tab. There I found the following listed:

C-DillaCdaC11Ba Macrovision as a running Service.

Anyone know what this is?

Cdilla - C-Dilla, What is it?
C-Dilla, Cdilla and cdac11ba.exe

* Process File: (cdilla) cdac11ba or cdac11ba.exe
* Process Name: cdac11ba
* Description: Associated with MacroVision’s SafeCast copy protection software which enables other software manufacturers to protect their products from illegal copying.
* Company: MacroVision
* System Process: No
* Security Risk ( Virus/Adware/Spyware ): No, but double check using this spyware test
* Common Errors: N/A

CDilla - Detailed information

C-Dilla [ cdac11ba.exe ] was the name of a company that was acquired by Macrovision in 1999. Some Macrovision SafeCast technology is derived from earlier C-Dilla products, and some of the files and folders used by SafeCast-licensed applications today still have "C-Dilla" in their names.

For example, TurboTax has been known to install and use C-Dilla. What disturbs users is that Macrovision / C-Dilla License Management System can be installed without clear notification and remains after you uninstall the main application. To uninstall this software, you have to go through the uninstall procedures like you would for any software, and select this product.
cdac11ba.exe - spy ware?

Is it spyware? Spyware, also called adware, is commonly defined as any software that covertly gathers user information through the user's Internet connection without his or her knowledge, usually for advertising purposes. Spyware applications are typically bundled as a hidden component of freeware or shareware programs that can be downloaded from the Internet. Once installed, the spyware monitors user activity on the Internet and transmits that information in the background to someone else. Because the Cdilla does not gather Internet connection information, the program is not considered spyware.

Thanks, I appreciate your prompt response. I guess there's no need to be concerned, so I'll leave it alone.
