    CBXXUVU.DLL is definitely known spyware of some sort. It is part of the spyware group SpywareQuake, but is a bogus spyware application. If you use that DLL in a Google search, you will find heuristics that will safely remove it free of charge.
    This spyware usxs seven different file names... when you get the correct spyware removal application, run it twice, once in Safemode.

    Prevx1 appears to be a valid company. We have had not problems using their downloads in the past 49 days we have been using the product. Seems to work great so far.
