I should add I haven't used this computer in (2) years so I also uninstalled old versions of programs that have since been updated.
System is IBM T30 with XP Pro and up to date SP2, including all IBM hardware updates as well.
I found (3) problems:
1. Uninstalled old Lotus Smartsuite but during reboot cycle I get message "Windows cannot open this file; Lotus Quickstart.Ink.disabled" and asks if I want to go to internet to identify it or if I want to point it to a program to open it.
2. I uninstalled old version of Spybot Seach and Destroy and now get "Spybit S+D Resident; Spyblocked Avenue A" when I change websites/webpages. How do I stop this message? I will update later to newer version of SB but would like to get rid it first.
3. I uninstalled Norton Systemworks 2004 and the old Norton Antivirus because I am running Bitdefender 9 now. However I forgot to go in and clean out the Quarantine Files before uninstalling. Now I've got (2) sets of quarantine files; one under c:/program files/Norton Systemworks and the other under c:/program files/Norton Antivirus and both are loaded with the "netsky" bug of a couple of years ago...I tried to simply delete them but I wasn't allowed and my BitDefender went nuts....blocking all the viruses. I still have the CD for Systemworks but can't find the one for Antivirus...
Best regards and thanks in advance.
