Acting funny? Can you expand on that? Now that you've scanned your system with Ad-aware, the next step is to click the DELETE button so Ad-aware will ditch the spyware.

use kazaa/morpheus/grokster or any other clones of those programs? that cydoor thing is needed by those programs, but it can be gotten around by using a fake file. I'm looking for the instructions now, as I never bookmarked them

i dont know anything about this spyware stuff but i guess that cydoor must be spyware? and i used to use kazaa but i havent lately. my computer will sometimes slow to a crawl online and get to the point where it wont even load pages all the way. none of my neighbors have the problem with their service so i figured it must be my computer

Cydoor is spyware and is loaded on your system when you install Kazaa. If you haven't already, get rid of it with Ad-aware.

Lavasofts Ad-aware seems to be a good program. Sometimes though, even with ad-aware, spyware is a real pain in the ass to get rid of. Had something called 'gator'. It's some marketing ad/spy software but it kept reinstalling itself into my registry after I deleted the directory, removed them from the registry etc. Sneaky bastards. Took awhile to figure out but it's gone for good. Made up an alias hotmail account and bitched them out. I figure with scum like that, you use your real addy and they'll sell it anyway. I'm sure they don't care, but it felt good bitching in their general direction. [:D]
