Spyware question re Acrobat Pro 7.0 - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

I'm using Acrobat Professional version 7.0.1 on my Mac OS 10.4.2. Recently I upgraded Allume Systems' Internet Cleanup from version 2.0.3 to version 3.0 and the first time I ran SpyAlert in Internet Cleanup 3.0 it identified the following eight files, all of which are in the same directory within the Acrobat program (the particulars of which are typically hidden from view in Finder) as Spector/Spector X spyware and recommended their deletion: Embed Page Thumbnails.sequ Fast Web View.sequ Open All.sequ Print 1st Page of All.sequ Print All.sequ Remove File Attachments.sequ Save All as RTF.sequ Set Security to No Changes.sequ Has ...

    Default Spyware question re Acrobat Pro 7.0

    I'm using Acrobat Professional version 7.0.1 on my Mac OS 10.4.2. Recently I upgraded Allume Systems' Internet Cleanup from version 2.0.3 to version 3.0 and the first time I ran SpyAlert in Internet Cleanup 3.0 it identified the following eight files, all of which are in the same directory within the Acrobat program (the particulars of which are typically hidden from view in Finder) as Spector/Spector X spyware and recommended their deletion:

    Embed Page Thumbnails.sequ
    Fast Web View.sequ
    Open All.sequ
    Print 1st Page of All.sequ
    Print All.sequ
    Remove File Attachments.sequ
    Save All as RTF.sequ
    Set Security to No Changes.sequ

    Has anyone else using these programs run into this, and more importantly, are these files really spyware? Internet Cleanup indicates that spyware often masquerades as legitimate files, but I'm not sure that these are actually spyware, so I don't know whether I should remove them or not. I would appreciate any help/advice.

    Thank you.

    Those files aren't programs, so I don't see how they can be spyware.

    Those are the default pre-made batch processes.
