hi, I should know better by now but stupidly posted this in the wrong forum!

I recently downloaded a program called Kompozer which is a basic, free web page creator. The following day my computer was very slow once I got to desktop, so I did a SpyBot scan. It found SpyPry in location C:\windows\system32\aamd532.dll. I let SpyBot deal with it. I googled, and discovered SpyPry is a program which claims to get rid of spyware but gives false positives. Anyway, I thought I had got rid of it, but today my computer was once again slow at desktop so I did a general search for aamd532.dll and it is in my i386 folder. Another google search on this file seems to suggest it too is spyware of some sort. At the moment I don't know whether to delete it from the i386 folder. Can anyone shed any further light on this, and should I get rid of the file, and also Kompozer which I assume is how the file got on my computer? I ought to say I have commodo firewall and Kaspersky AV, and would have thought they would have flagged up this particular file. I downloaded Kompozer by recommendation from someone on another forum. Thanks in advance for any advice.

TetonBob, thanks for your response. I will do as you recommend. I let SpyBot deal with SpyPry, which it flagged up, and don't actually know if it deleted the System32\aamd532.dll file itself, which is where it said SpyPry was located, but SpyBot said it had dealt with the problem In my general search the file came up as within the SpyBot folder. When I saw the same file name in i386 I was worried.
