    woodcock23,

    Never Delete a file that you are not sure of. see what i can find on the file.

    Have fun at the computer show....

    This is what i found lets see what the Spyware guys say about it.


    The item that Panda found is a known false positive. Are there any particular problems or is everything OK?

    Hello Jim

    Panda should have come up with this line:

    Potentially unwanted tool:Application/Pskill.A Not disinfected C:\WINDOWS\Motive\btbb\pskill.exe

    Zep is correct, it is a false positive. Here is a link for some info on it:
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sys...es/pskill.mspx

    Due to the nature of the program I believe all online scanners will report it.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks Zep and Clarke 76 I read the link message but did not really understand it, as things seem to be running ok I think I will just ignore this file ? cheers Jim
