That's cool! Spyware is becoming a big pain and it is easy for someone to
accidentally click yes when they are in a hurry and low and behold they now
have it installed. Great and enjoy surfing, you should still keep your eye
open for your cd. Take care, Dave

Hi 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

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