    Immediately after I install Vista Business (before I connect to the
    internet) one of my spyware checkers (XSOFT) finds two problems:-

    1 PCTattletate File Keylogger C:\Windows\System32\winload.exe SEVERE RISK
    2 Troj/Agent Host File Item Trojan local host Severe Risk

    XSOFT will not allow me to remove these as they are in use????

    I have run three other spyware/virus checkers and not one of these have
    found anything.
    My main AV is Norton and it has not found anything

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    TIA

    This is probably a false-positive. I would be very wary of using any
    antispyware programs that aren't specifically designed for Vista.
    Contact XSoft regarding this.

  3. There have been a few false positives with Vista and the software not
    designed for it. It one finds it and the others don't, it's almost a
    for-sure false positive.

    You might check to see if there is a Vista update for your software.

    I don't suppose you happened to use a DVD image you downloaded from the
    net, did you?

    More then once I've been at a customer's side who "lost" their XP disc,
    but had a copy that had various forms of malware added to the unattended
    install.

    I haven't seen it happening under Vista yet, but it's only a matter of
    time.
