A week or so ago, I DLed a little supposedly cracker search tool called "Piratos." I scanned it; I have Sygate, so it couldn't get out, so I thought "I can always uninstall." Well, when I tried to use it, it tried to dial Germany. I forgot about it for while and then removed it, using Add/Remove. I've always used Cleansweep - had it even way back before Norton bought it - but, for some reason, I used the Win app. The icon and the program seemed to disappear. While searching today, using Cleansweep, for another program that needed uninstalling, I saw the "Piratos" name again. So, I started to remove it using Cleansweep. When it started removing stuff, I saw suddenly that the amount to be removed was about 50 gigs, and I saw "My Shared Folder" start flashing by. I backed out in a hurry and selected "confirm each item." I then tunneled down to find that Piratos had hooked itself to my Shared folder and "Remove all files," and then "Remove folder after empty" had been automatically selected. I know many of you have found yourself trapped in never-ending popups, but this looks like an act of pure vengeance. After I de-selected the Shared Folder dlls, only 4,096KB was left of the program which was supposed to already have been removed. Any other experience out there with these folk?
