Ok when running spysweeper It keeps detecting Gator's adware software on my computer yet I have no symptoms or installed files (im guessing thanks to Spyware Blaster?) but it still keeps ending up in my temp folder. heres what im talking about

Did this just start appearing after the last update? It was also detected on my computer. I ran it. Re-started. It never returned. I'm just curious; I don't have an answer for you. Sorry. :(

Same here. Last update yielded 1 instance of Gator(GAIN) and 3 traces. When I deleted all from quarentine it said something re Webroot? Am I getting paranoid or something. Webroot is SpySweeper's parent company??? Well, no one else found Gator; I run 8 various Spyware/Trojan/ ActiveX blockers/CWS destroyers, etc. Maybe I'll email them and inquire.

I also noticed that the files are named .tmp.dat and .ink.dat so their not really ink and tmp files their really dat files? And yes I started getting these after the update.
