    Ok i notice i keep getting a searchforit result every time i scan with spybot even after trying to remove it any idea why.My other question is i was using spy sweeper 3.1 and it always use to find spyware here and there yet i notice there was a 3.2 version out and i downloaded since downloading it i rarely ever find spyware why,I know for a fact cookies should at least be showing up but none of my scans turn up anything :confused:

    Spybot wants it out, SpywareBlaster wants it in and that's how it comes back. Sounds like Spy Sweper is doing the same - My understanding is it is a false positive.

    I'd leave it alone - They have gotten better, but not nearly as frequent as AdAware.

    If you don't have it get SpywareBlaster as a preventor
