    your saying one of those running process&#39;s are ad-ware ? The only one that even looked suspect to me was the nwiz.exe, and looks like its ok too

    hmm, i&#39;ve just done some quick research and found that i&#39;m just being really paranoid (just changed my AV)

    i unticked the ones i thought were suspicous, mainly because i&#39;&#39;ve never seen them before and the mspy2002 especially threw me

    to conclude - Ad-aware not crap, yay
