You're welcome but be sure to let me know - because if NVIEW wasn't causing the problem we can put it back :tazz:

I'll be on for several more hours if you decide to do it tonight.

Removing it from startup is sufficient - that way if you ever do need it, you can run it manually, but you can remove it.

Things are moving fairly well. For now I will leave Nview in the backup and if I ever need it Im sure I can retreive and run it manually like you said. Good enough? FYI I dont think Nview was causing any problems.

Sounds like a plan ;) If you have any other problems, you know where to find me ;)

Congratulations your log is clean! Great job on the clean up :tazz:

I recommend checking the Microsoft web site periodically for critical updates to install.

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program<= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kapersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall<= A firewall is definitely a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneLabs.
