    i have been using spybot for awhile now and last week i found something it cannot fix and i have not been able to figure out what it is. i am pretty sure it is some type of spyware. i'll post the log here in hopes of someone being able to tell me what it is and how i should go about wiping it from my system.

    thanks

    MS DirectInput: Most recent application (Registry change, fixing failed)
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-329068152-1220945662-725345543-1003\Software\Microsoft\DirectInput\MostRecentApplication\Name=

    MS DirectInput: Most recent application ID (Registry change, fixing failed)
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-329068152-1220945662-725345543-1003\Software\Microsoft\DirectInput\MostRecentApplication\Id=


    these two will not fix and they seem to generate stuff constantly which spybot can clean up.

    hijackthis and ad-aware 6 havn't been able to help either.

    does anyone have any ideas?

    Directinput is windows method of dealing with input data that comes from a device that is unsupported by microsoft api's. These keys are records of the last device to use directinput and thus changing.

    These are not anything malicious.
