I posted a hijackthis log and questions a few days ago and no one has replied. the following is related to that post, so if this piques your interest and you'd like to take a look i'd appreciate it.

as mentioned in my earlier post, i had downloaded the free spyhunter weeks ago and it also showed seekseek. i also did not want to buy spyhunter, so searched the internet for instructions on how to remove seekseek. what I found gave instructions for removing specific files and changing specific registry entries. I did not have any of these files or entries on my computer, leading me to believe that spyhunter was mistaken and probably intentionally giving a false alarm in order to sell their software.

the post above tends to confirm that suspicion.

last week, based on info here, i downloaded ad-aware, ran it, and removed what I think were some dialers inadvertently downloaded while surfing. ad-aware did nto show me having seekseek. i also have webroot spyseeker, which has never shown seekseek.

today i updated ad-aware, scanned again, and lo and behold it showed the spy hunter software as undesirable, calling it a data miner. so i deleted spy hunter.

it appears ad-aware has concluded that no only is spy hunter ineffective but is a form of spyware (malware? I'm not sure I've got the terminology down yet) itself.

anyone else have the same experience? i'd like to know, and I am posting this for general info.
