Hi hookem_horns79

Click Start , then Run , type msconfig , and click "Ok". Under the "Startup" tab, look under the "Command" column for C:\programfiles\accerlation software\anti-virus\sstsmon.dll. Is it listed there (maybe a blank entry)?

(Note: Please be patient, the "Malware Forum" is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual.)

Also let them know about "eacceleration"
