Hello! I'm new to these forums, and I hope you can help me out here.
I've recently downloaded Ad-Aware 6.0, Spybot Search and Destroy, and SpySweeper. I ran Ad-Aware and Search and Destroy, found some small bugs, re-ran the scans, and came up clean the second time. HOWEVER! When I ran SpySweeper, it detected a few files, I supposedly quarantined them, and ran it again. They're still there. Of the remaining, there's a few Adware and one big thing...IOpus Starr...So, I did my research, and I've come to learn that IOpus is a monitoring program ideally for network admins and parents. There's a few things which don't make much sense about IOpus.
1. Why didn't AdAware and SpyBot detect it?
2. I read that IOpus can only be installed MANUALLY (I assume only physically; I ran HijackThis so I doubt it could have been hijacked) on the computer or by a network admin. How do I have it?
3. Why won't it go away!
This is vital for me to figure out, as my security is at risk!
Note: I ran HijackThis and all the files there are legit (alright), and from progs such as FlashGet
