Spybot results - Strange?

  Gaz 25 01:41 01 Feb 04

I have a fresh install of XP, ok.

Have Spybot on disc, with all updates.

Ran it, and it detected CoolWWWSearch.800k and that PeopleOnPage spyware.

Now everyone I know has had the same results, and if I reverse the clean and run CWShredder I show clean.

So why is spybot detecting these, are they preloaded with XP then?

Has anyone else had these found after the latest update to spybot?

Odd. It shows up clean on the CWShredder but not in Spybot.

Please tell me its not only me?

Not found.

However, every PC I have scanned was infected. Odd, even though they are FRESH installs.

is this full xp cdrom or a recovery disc version?

i have a packard bell.if i use the return to factory settings disc it installs "backweb" and a "teknum systems" folder as part of the PB pre installed software(activsurf) for example but its known to be spyware.

if i install xp only without the extra software its not a problem.
