MessageHi David,
Yes I fixed my problem.
No I do not know which file was the culprit.
I used Ad-Aware and it identified 142 registry keys, files & folders that were 
spyware;   so I deleted them all;   each and every one.

  Good morning. So I take it that you have fixed your problem, I haven't read 
all the e-mails but assumed you found the culprit as you indicated you are up 
and running. :>) Dave

    before I install any more new programs.
    Thanks,
    Carl

      Carl, you may want to check out SpyBot as well, it sometimes finds thing 
that Ad-Aware doesn't.
      http://snurl.com/kr7
      To check to see if a program is Spyware before you d/l & install, look 
here:
      http://www.spychecker.com/ 

      They may not have it in their database & it could be spyware, but if it 
is in the database could save you some grief later.

        Hi Vic,

        I must have read the same report about Ad-Aware because for a long time 
I refused to use it.    Several people on this list and some other lists 
suggested Ad-Aware might solve my problem.   I did not believe them.    I was 
wrong.

        When I ran Ad-Aware I was at the point where I had almost decided to 
format my harddrive and start over.    So, when I ran Ad-Aware and it 
identified 142 registry keys and files and folders as being spyware, I deleted 
ALL;   every single one.    And it worked.   It fixed my problem.     For the 
past year or so I have been very faithful to check for anti-virus programs 
upgrades on a daily basis to prevent the bugs from entering my unit;   little 
did I know that spyware was just as dangerous.

        Carl
        :-)

          Speaking of AdAware    Take care and make sure you back everything 
up, I have heard from reliable sources that the latest version of Adaware - 
ver. 6 - is very aggressive and sometimes cleans a bit too much.

          Carl,

          You want to get rid of NEWDOTNET, it's a baddie... Adaware should 
pick it up.
