    What is this? Spyware, Virus? Maybe I'll just cancel it...heh sorta easy. I ran a norton scan and it didnt find n e thing. Also did a adaware6 pro scan...(i updated it today) found nothing..
    I have the latest version of Norton Antivirus (it auto updates, but i doubled checked and it has the latest virus defs)



    All the location text says after it is:
    HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
