Hi Carl, Thanks for the information! Are you saying that (fsg-xxx.exe)is the same thing as ginst_001.exe? Either way I did find Gator on that machine and got rid of it. My son goes to cartoon sites and plays games. I suppose it downloaded itself from one of those sites. I have all my machines locked down so that nothing can install itself without my permission. Sounds like maybe Ryan has been exploring settings on that machine. I know how to fix that! ha Pam =) -----Original Message----- From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Carl Sent: Wednesday, October 29, 2003 3:59 PM To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [pcductape] Re: ginst_001.exe Hi Pam, Someone ask this question on a yahoo group and a reply was as indicated below.
