    Question Please Help! What is Inetpub? In Windows.

    Hay Sup

    In my PC under windows XP Pro

    C:\Inetpub\ \AdminScripts
    \catalog.wci
    +\iissamples
    +\mailroot
    \Scripts
    \wwwroot

    What are these files for?

    Are they a BUG? "Datamining, aggressive advertising, Parasites, Scumware, Keyloggers, selected traditional Trojans, Dialers, Malware, Browser hijackers, tracking components."

    What ever it is, its realy deep in to my windows XP Pro!

    Do I need to remove these files?

    One of the things you installed was IIS (Internet Information Services) from the Control Panel | Add or Remove Programs-->Add/Remove Windows Components...C:\Inetpub is the directory created by the IIS web server.

    You probably shouldn't muddle around with any windows files....

    What are you using to scan for spyware?

    Lavasoft's Adaware seems pretty good, and it doesn't bother with my inetpub when I scan.

    the best way to remove this without screwing something up would be to uninstall iis... start > control panel > add/remove programs > add remove windows components > find it there somewhere...

    botteneatrpi, iis is NOT spyware - its simply running a internet information systems service on your computer... aka website, or ftp server, or mail server

    Sorry I know this is an old post... My dad noticed this today on his computer, and he says that it was not there prior to a week ago. I also have it but I don't have (catalog.wci) odd.. Well does it have anything to do with DVD playing software???

    catalog.wci also has to do with IIS. If you really worried, run a spyware and AV scan
