Hi David,

Thanks for your help.
Yes, I un-installed Tweakui.
And I ran Ad-Aware and with it I remove 142 items and it fixed
my system.   You were right;  it was a spyware item that did
me in.   I don't know which one and really don't care.   If I
can avoid spyware I will.

Carl

  Vic: The rundll32 that is being talked to is connected to
tweakui and in
  this case I would end the task. Tweakui can do some serious
things in
  creating problems if you play with it, however, really think
spyware is
  doing Carl in. :>) He has so much junk running we need to
shut some of it
  down to isolate the culprit. :>)

  The long and short of it is --- do not play round with
rundll32 - if it
  is there and running Windows needs it for something.

  Rundll32.exe = Required for Dial Up Networking. This also
appears in the
  Startup list if the resolution monitor (used to change
monitor
  resolution on the fly) is placed in the system tray even if
unchecked in
  Startup.
