    Hi, today I decided to try ZoneAlarm's free firewall. Before I could download it, the website strongly recommended I run they're "free" online spyware scanner.
    I did so, and this is what it spit out:

    I've looked up the first item the keystroke logger, and it seems to me that really the only place I see it referenced is someone panicking from a Zonelabs "free" scan.
    The scan ran in less than 10 minutes, which seems fast to me considering I've got about 60gb of assorted stuff on here.

    What got me wondering is that other FREE spyware scans haven't picked these up, they take much much long to do the scans and IF they catch something, they offer a repair button that WORKS.
    Zonelabs repair button simply pops up a page that says you need to buy their $49.95 software to complete the repair.

    I dont want to sound too bitter but that seems a little cheesy to me.

    I regularly run Avast AV and Spybot SnD, and Adaware SE. and occasionally Enwido as well as Microsoft Antispyware with no results.

    Any comments? or am I really infected do you think.
    Thanks in advance.
