Hi Carl, That's interesting, I did the same thing, at Google groups and only got the foreign language sites I mentioned. I have to laugh about the irony you mentioned. For those of you all who don't know Mike Baynes, he is the guy who's signature line I borrowed, and who is a very knowledgeable person in virus problems, spyware, and general computer stuff too. How ironic that I borrow his signature for a problem and now Carl you are telling me that he inadvertently answered. And I find it even more interesting that it was he who taught me a while back to go to google groups to look up such stuff. Thanks Carl for finding and posting what you found. Now to go figure out why I got different results than you did. And why just now when I tried it again I got the same results that you did. Ok, so now you all know now that I'm easily entertained. ;-) My grandmother used to say the same thing, as Robert's (my husband) grandmother must have said because he says it to the kids at appropriate moments. I like Matthew 7:12 too, about treating others how you want to be treated.

Also shows in running programmes. "Trickler" c:\windows\temp\fsg_tmp\ginst_001.exe any ideas please Kan 24hoursupport.helpdesk - Oct 29, 2003 by KanKaroo - View Thread (5 articles) and when I went to the group I noticed that someone had asked the same question you did and the answer was spyware but he did not explain why aginst_001.exe became fsg-xxx.exe. You mentioned in one of your emails that you like the phrase "It is a good day when one learns something" and I think he is the guy that answered the question about ginst_001.exe. One of my favorite phrases is "Treat others like you want to be treated". My grandmother use to say "If you can't say something good about a person, don't say anything".
