    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.
