  1. Something has changed. For the past week I have been getting a list of some 50 to 100 Mb of Norton files listed in the Windows\Temp or Documents and Settings\temp directories. For example:- ANALYSIS COMPLETE - (0.583 secs) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 49.2MB to be removed. (Approximate size) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Details of files to be deleted (Note: No files have been deleted yet) ------------------------------------------------------------------------
  2. Hi, Just to say that I have never had any trouble installing CCleaner... However I read somewhere that xSoft Spy is itself a spyware program...
