Hi, I've read alot of back and forth about the nail.exe file reappearing after being deleted and the mysterious 7 letter exe that keeps changing it's name. Apparently there is a relaionship between these two guys but the precise modus operandi continues to evade me. Does anyone know what's driving this? Like who's in charge or anything? It appears to be a rather ingenious method. I've spent the better part of two days on it now. Can't help but wonder how it can be that a program can run so easily on my computer -- I can watch it -- but I have no say so over it running -- didn't give it permission or anything (really) -- but there it goes anyway. Also puzzled why such programs can protect themselves from deletion when I kinda feel like my right to delete should be absolute -- kinda like a constitutional right.

Tried half a dozen virus scanners adware programs and I also downloaded and ran the "Qoolaid tool" -- Dos batch stuff. It didn't solve any problems by the way and ever since I ran it I see a dos window flash briefly on every restart. Don't know what it did or does exactly.

I also have some reason to believe an OS shell file has been vandalized by one of those guys -- or unknown associates.

Seriously though, who's running the show here? Is it the invincible Nail.exe or the chameleon 7 letter file with no name -- or some shadowy figure yet lurking in the background? Forced to run before the relentless pursuit of the police lieutenant obsessed with his capture . . .

Anyone really know?
