I was going to ask you to post a hijack this log, but I saw you just got cleaned up a few days back. Is it the realplayer program? Right click on the folder and tell me what the properties say and post a hijack this log.

You have the realplayer program. That's not a virus. Why do you want to delete it? We can keep it from starting up when you boot up your computer if you'd like.

Have you tried going to add/remove programs and removing it that way? I'm not sure if it's bundled with something else or not. Try that.

What we can do is disable it from starting up.

Start>>run>>type in msconfig

Go to the last tab and find realplay. Uncheck it. Reboot.

Realplayer is not a virus. You need to post this question in the xp/2000 forums. Did you go to add/remove programs and remove it that way? All you did when you went to msconfig is not enabling it to start when you booted up the computer.
