Well I ran Windows Washer on my friends computer, and it washed 1 GB of IE temp files. But while it did this, an error popped up in the tool bar. Please help me with this error so I can fix my friends computer.

Please put the file in JPEG format next time so that it isn't almost 1.5MB in size. I have changed the file to JPEG format this time.

wwDisp.exe is part of the Window Washer software from Webroot. I would just uninstall the software and the problem will go away. :whistling:

Fenor is correct about the file wwDisp.exe belonging to Window Washer. Removing and re-installing it may correct the problem if you would like to continue using Window Washer, or you can remove it and install a similar, free product called "Ccleaner" which has never caused me any problems.
You can get it here: http://www.majorgeek...wnload4191.html

I recommend you get it from the link above (not the ccleaner website) because it is the "slim" version which does not include the Yahoo Toolbar which you may not want. If you get ccleaner from the ccleaner website it will install the Yahoo Toolbar unless you de-select that option.

Yes it is. ATF is what I would suggest over CCleaner, but I'm biased because I know the person who created ATF... :whistling:

But seriously, it is better then CCleaner.

Ok thank you both pip22 and fenor.

One last question, is it really possible that Windows Washer removed 1GB of temp internet files. It also moved a lot of temp Windows files and I just stopped it becuase I received that error and didn't wan't to screw up his computer. Becasue that seems a little too extreme...

On a computer that isn't cleaned that often, removing 1GB isn't that unusual. I've cleaned up almost 4GB on a machine before.
