    Spyware had detected alot of spycookies and I just quarantined everything (linksky was included.) I only realized that it looked familiar after I deleted everything that was quarantined.

    Any easy way to undelete it? (and why would it have been detected in spyware?)

    Also I uninstalled netscape by accident - I'm afraid to do anything now!

    thanks for any help.

    Are you still able to connect to the internet?

    Do you have the Linksys installation disk?

    If you still have the disk, reinstall Linksys.

    By "Netscape" are you referring to the browser or to the ISP? Whichever the case, you should be able to download and reinstall either.

    Go to this Linksys site and select your adapter from the drop down, click Downloads for this product and you will have Driver,User Guide, and other downloads that you might need.

    That sounds easy enough. I don't know my adapter, but I'm sure I can find that out.

    I just emailed webroot about this.
    Why would linksky have a red flag?
    It was on my warning list.
    Unless something got attatched to it...hell, I have no idea. I'm not saavy.
