Hi Pam, I'm saying that when I went to google.com and searched the "Groups", the results were 4 hits and the second hit was Trickler ... up" never seen it before. 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".
