    Default HotsearchBar DLL (NSCMPS.DLL) is part of Office 2000?

    Hi,
    when I just ran Search&Destroy using the latest update it popped up with "HotsearchBar", Library "C:\WINDOWS\system32\NSCMPS.DLL".. I must say I was quite surprised, considering that I'm really careful with my PC... and therefor before simply going ahead with the fix I checked online and it seemed that this file is actually part of Office2000..
    What's next, do I need to report this to somebody else?
    Cheers,
    Andres

    Default I would like to add the following:

    This File entry is what I see:

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ NSCMPS.DLL

    not the system32 one and it appears on my Windows 98SE computer but NOT on my Windows XP one. It was also fixed.

    edit:do you have Office 2000 on your XP??

    Hi Danny,

    I talked to my husband and he thinks we have Office 2000, we have Office for sure. It was put on when our computer was built in 2000 or 2001?

    Right now I have near to nothing on my XP computer, except stuff to get rid of stuff ... no Office (or Works anything) except Viewers for Office programs.

    edit:If you have Office 2000,may be your
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ NSCMPS.DLL
    is associated with Office.....if you want a good advice,don't delete this one until the Spybot team reply.

    Hi :(

    I already did the fix but have not tried to use any of the Office Programs since.

    (We only use it for the Word & Excel. We were told that we needed the Word to have spell check in Outlook Express? And it was only available in a "bundled" product? Having to get a "justified" high priced "bundle" for a program or two did not thrill me.)

    Okay, I checked and when I went to "Word" I saw it is 2000.

    Don't be too sad about the fix you have done...you can reinstall Office after all...if it is necessary.
    edit:go see in the "recovery" section of your S&D....maybe you can find this .dll ...and restore it if it needed
