Repa,

After finishing up my scanning today, all scans showed up "Clean", No Threats! That includes Spybot also. I scanned safe mode, as well as normal mode. All that was found was the Rogue.SmartEngine ,that was caught by Malwarebytes yesterday, 10/27/10.

I haven't got CC Cleaner as yet, but, doesn't the "TrackSweep" function of Ad-Aware, do the same thing?

CardSpace, that we talked about, was not found in Add/Remove.

I forgot to do a Search for; xpshieldsetup.exe, and antivirus2009. Should I still do the search?

Keep an eye on your email, please.

Ccleaner does a lot more than tracksweep in ad-aware. It gets stuff no longer needed in Windows Explorer, enpties the trashcan, gets rid of temporary system files no longer needed, etc. It also has a good registry cleaner. It cleans a lot of stuff off your system that accumulates as you run that is no longer needed after a certain point in time. Tracksweep doesn't do anywhere near all that. So, it's your choice. I recommend ccleaner.

You don't need to do those searches unless you get that problem again. Sounds like Malwarebytes did what it should have done.

NO, NO, I don't have a clue. I only mentioned Tracksweep, because I noticed it the day I posted. I've never even used it before. And, I know that you would know the best one to use. CCCleaner it is. Thanks.
