    I ran Ad-Aware this morning, and it came up with 2 alerts for a 'possible attempted change to a registry key' -

    1st One

    Root: KEY_CURRENT_USER
    Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    Value: MyWebSearch Email Plugin
    Data: C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEB~1\bar\2.bin\mwsoemon.exe

    2nd One

    Root: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Key: Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
    Value: First Home Page
    New Data: http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?Prd=iePver=5.0

    Do you know what these represent? I don't know whether I should be blocking these or accepting them, which are the 2 options offered by the Ad-Aware SE Plus program that detected them.
    Tks!. Rodfly
