As of late, my AD-AWARE and SPYBOT scans have been relatively clean. Then... this morning, for the first time in several weeks I fired up AIM and when I did a scan late tonite it found all kinds of stuff, Wupdater, Newnet among others.

Is AIM the likely culprit of these programs? I use OPERA as my browser and since making the switch to it have had hardly any spyware. AIM seems to open up IE for any of it's updates, games etc.... I was just curious about AIM contributing to this new spyware I found on my system.

Thanks

Hmm, think I read something about the New version of AIM carrying spyware... I'll try to find the thread.
