    After I installed CounterSpy2 and the latest version of Ad-Aware. I think I may have unwittingly deleted something that I shouldn't have following one the scans. My "animated" emoticons/smilies are no longer showing as being "animated" on my PC. That makes me sad. How do I fix this?:(

    I think Adaware was doing its job of ridding your computer of potential bugs and deleted the program that animates your icons because it considers the program is spyware.

    Thank you Flag, but I want my smilies animated once again. How do I go about getting what was deleted by either ad-aware or Spy-counter back?

    I'm not sure but doesn't Yahoo have animated icons you can download?

    PQ2: You may enjoy your animated smileys, but some spyware, etc. may come with the enjoyment.
