    Default Apparently I have adware in my empty DVD-drive

    Observe the above

    Notice the top five hits that Spybot found.

    Now note that my D drive is my DVD drive -and it was empty during the scan.

    Kindly explain?

    Also note: I've checked whether Spybot just got a drive letter wrong. It hasn't. None of my six HDs has a root directory called \C-Backup\. It does not exist.

    Advice would be nice

    Thank you for reporting this error.
    We are actually very puzzled why this occurred.
    More information could help us solve this issue.

    Please do the following:
    • open a command console for instance by pressing Windowskey+r then enter cmd and confirm
    • enter set > set.txt then confirm with enter key, this will create a text file set.txt containing information system variables and basic information on the computer

    Attach the set.txt to an email to with a reference to this thread.
