    Go here http://www.spywareguide.com/txt_onlinescan.html and run the online scanner - it's very cool and very free. Another quick fix tool for all of us, not perfect but neither are any of the others.

    just did the scan and it went from a-z and said done and closed.

    I guess i am bug free although it gave no prompt

    I did see it say nothing detected before it closed itself auto

    You may also notice it says 5 CLSID (well CLISD actually but not every software writer can spell you know) these are the class identifiers installed by the software in question. WooHoo!! You got rid of some more crap from your system.
