    I have moved your post to it`s own thread. This will save any confusion.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Protected Storage PassView 1.50 is one of Password Cracker spywares.
    Finding it on your computer means that your computer is infected with Password Cracker and crucial data could be endangered or even lost.
    This Password Cracker is also known as:
    •TrojanDropper.Win32.PVStealth.b - named by Kaspersky.

    As you can see from the above, this is a very dangerous infection.

    I strongly urge you to follow the instructions in the links I gave you.

    Regards Howard :)
