Is this spyware ??

I have a registry entry that keeps popping up (even after many deletions) and I have virus-checked; and I have spy-ware checked; and I have registry checked; and it keeps coming back.

I emailed the NetCaptor people - and asked them how to get it off my system (as I had never been to their website or downloaded their product) - the closest I came was the google taskbar (now removed)

They said I must have a virus - Is NetCaptor a Virus ?

Is there a dll (or similar) on my system that keeps making a registry entry on a regular basis - reminds me of the gator thing.

cheers

You could try a registry cleaner and/or HijackThis.

thanks Jim - will have a look now

Hi Tommy - I have Hijack-this - two registry cleaners - adaware (with RegHance) - Zzonealarm - two virus checkers - BigFix - and I'm running a RAM DRIVE where all my internet stuff goes (cookies, Temp files, history) ...

and this one still got through

cheers

> I have ... <a whole bunch of junk>

Woah... like seriously. Got Paranoia?

If you are that scared, use a browser like FireFox or something that is far less susceptible to crap than IE.
