Virus or new Webroot's anti-p2p policy?
Hi everybody, and sorry for my poor English.
Few days ago, I noticed all emule-related *.exe files had disappeared from my internal HDD. I tried to copy them from a USB HDD, copy happened but two seconds later, the file disappeared again. This problem stopped when I deactivated Webroot Spy Sweeper's shield. After installing the Mule without Spy Sweeper, the install was completed successfully, but at the first boot after after having re-installed Spy Sweeper, I had a light blue screen annoucing "emule.exe deleted, eMule0.47a-Installer.exe deleted, shareazaa.exe not found, limewire.exe not found, kazaa.exe not found", etc.
Would it be possible that Spy Sweeper has been infected by some virus, or would it be an anti-p2p policy applied by Webroot?
My security tools are NAV 2006, NPF 2006, Ad-Aware, Ewido, Arovax, and formerly (of course) Spy Sweeper.
