Question: Hi Andrew. I have a Windows XP (SP1) that I think got some spyware on it. Ever since installing CuteFTP 5.0, things are strange.

i got an 'iSearch' in the explorer toolbar.

And a 'ghost' window in explorer that I can't get rid of.

Also, my notepad.exe is missing. and so is all my search features.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Answer: Notepad missing? I think that might be a virus. Start by going to www.lavasoftusa.com and downloading adaware. It's a good product and it has a free version. Install it then run it. As far as the notpad deal goes try these sites:

You should load norton or mcafee. You can also go to trendmicro.com and get a free online scan.
