    I downloaded and ran new Ad-aware 6. It did not recognize or delete TopMoxie (MoeMoneyMaker). But it found Alexa toolbar. Very interesting. Have you folks tried this new Adaware yet?

    Yes, it's similar to Aluria Spyware Eliminator in terms of capabilities. I'm working on a PC (not mine) which is infested with two porn diallers - IEAccess and Comload - and the Friends Greeting application.

    Now, Andrew Clover's site at Doxdesk.com detected both spyware plugins, but Aluria and AdAware only detected the IEAccess software.

    What actually removed Comload was Spybot - listed on Andrew's site. Best of all it's free - although if you find it useful I really would make a donation. It detected a whole load of other rubbish like bits of Alexa, IEAccess, Friend Greeting etc that I thought the others had cleaned off.

    Spybot is definitely worth a look. I was very impressed indeed.

    Damn. That sux. I wonder whats up with it not even detecting MMM. Maybe because thats supposedly a user's choice to install? argh.

    What are IEaccess and Cumload specifically? I see the are pron related, but, are they spyware/hijackware?

    Wow. Soon the average pc will have more garbageware running than legitimate appliations.

    Comload!

    They're porn dialler trojans - normally usually marketing as "free galleries but you need to use the special program". They then drop the modem connection and redial using a premium rate number.

    Some of them also carry the usual payloads of popups, redirects etc.

    Andrew's site detected both of them. Not bad for a web page!
