Hi Martha,

I have a new friend named Ad-Aware.
And another new friend named Opera.
Thanks for all your help.

Carl

  Good news, Carl!  Now at least once a week, run Ad-Aware &
keep it updated.  Keep your virus software updated, find your
Windows XP CD & put it in a safe place.  You will be ok!

    Hi David, Trapper, Pam, Bob, Bob, Vic, Martha,  and all
you guys,

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
    My problem was spyware.
    Trapper was the 1st to suggest I run ad-aware and I paid
no attention.   I scuff it off.   I even pohoo the suggestion.
I apologize Trapper.   Others of you said it was spyware and
to get rid of the junk in my startup menu.   I must confess
most of that stuff I did not install.     At  your
suggestions, I download Ad-Aware using Opera and then I had to
reboot to safemode to install the software.    I ran Ad-Aware
in safemode and it identified 142 offenders, including
registry keys, files, and 6 folders.   I deleted them all.
Then I rebooted and I can now open Internet Explorer 6 and
Windows Explorer.

    My deepest thanks to all of you.
    I still cannot find my Windows xp cd.   :-(
    Maybe my granddaughter has it.  :-)

    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.
