Thanks! The http://virscan.org link in the second article was especially useful.

Thanks guys for running this to ground. There should be no adware or spyware in the dll. It was created with a older free version of SynthMaker (SynthMaker CM). However, this version does place a clickable link logo that takes you to the SynthMaker home page.

Thanks again,
