Default Spyware Database

You must think I'm really paranoid about my new computer by now, huh?

Well...

Here's a list of error messages I received on shutting down my computer, all End Now messages:
ShellIconHiddenWindow
CTDVDPET
CcApp

Can you recognize any of these as spyware? If not, is there a safe site where I can run the name, and it'll give me a description? Like a spyware database?

ShellIconHiddenWindow: This is a reported error after installing a program called MusicMatch. The cure in that case is to use Start / Run / Msconfig, go to the Startup tab and disable mimboot.exe.

CcApp: Part of Norton AntiVirus, Auto-protect and E-mail check will not function without this.

CTDVDPET: Unknown, I can't find anything for this...



Edit: You might want to download and install these anti spyware programmes. Update them, then run them...

Spybot Search & Destroy http://www.safer-networking.org/

Ad-Aware http://www.lavasoftusa.com

SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
