Please Help! What is Inetpub? In Windows.

Hay Sup:D

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?

TaZ :eek:

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???

Yah I figured that, No worry about spyware now that I know how to turn it off thanks to this Thread... I was just wondering if it had anything to do with he DVD playing software, that is the last thing we did... Well we also did some windows updates..
