I have an old backup Pc, I ran a virus scan on it lately and the following came up:
C:\HP Internet Surfboard/KillWind
C:\HP bin/KillWind.exe
C:\Restore\Temp\A0004580.CPY
C:\Restore\Temp\A0004581.CPY
C:\HP\bin\Terminator.exe
C:\windows\options\CABS\Term

My question is would a program like spyhunter (scans your registry, memory, cookies and files for parasites, adware etc and removes them) remove those viruses?

This is related to a HP Keyboard app - Not any sort of virus.

None of the others appear to be virus related espcially the
C:\windows\options\CABS\Term

This is an integral part of Windows 9x


Finally to answer your question about spyhunter i'll refer to your previous thread.

And your question was...

Well the basic answer is no it won't

Hope this helps

you could download a free antivirus software package from the internet and run it and see if you have viruses or not.
