All of my anti-spyware programs pull up a hit called Hi-Wire. Anyone know what this is? For some reason I think that it's part of something I installed so I haven't been deleting it. Maybe because I have a wireless thing called 2Wire hooked up to my laptop I think I need to keep the HiWire.;g ^8

ETA: It seems to be connected to MusicMatch somehow. That particular program was already installed on the laptop when I bought it.

Be careful where you get your info.Some websites are fakes to install things on your PC.This website seems okay.

Hi-wire I think came in Limewire.Newer version of Limewire are suppose to be spyware/adware free but don't count on it.

That last link you provided mentioned lavasoft in it. I have AdAware installed and I believe they are from lavasoft....is that where the Hi-Wire came from?

No,I think Lavasoft detected it and F-Secure repeated what Lavasoft said about it.
