i have just down loaded readable dials mod from http://u-boot.realsimulation.com/ and got an alert for spy ware by the name of downloader.lunii when i un packed the dials file.
i have not run this pice of software yet because i do not want a nastys on my crusty old machine it slow enough as it is , is this normal for this particular file or has some on hijacked the contents and uploaded a dodgy mod ?

I have the redable dials mod and it did not come with spyware. It has been a while since I got the mod, I think I got it from subsim.com.

Maybe its the programme you use to spot the spyware thats the real culprit,I never got anything bad from realsim and theres a lot of stories about so called "spy removers"

Yeah,

Windoze has come a long way since repackaging Apple's GUI as Windows 95 (genuine compliment - I still prefer the Mac OS).

It's really sad though to see how vulnerable Windoze STILL is to 'malware' - to the extent that one can't even trust an anti-virus programme (not to mention the number of such programmes to choose from).
