Norton detected adware but was unable to delete them. I went through their removal process for apropos and it went away. I renamed the others (cal3dmod.exe, carosoft.exe, eltupt.exe, nsvs.dll, nsvsvc.exe, picsvr.exe) and rebooted to see if things worked without them. I then noticed 3 things: 1) at srartup I had 21 WordPad windows opened instead of starting the programs, 2) any dbl-clich or right-click/open I did opened the appl with WordPad, and, 3) my browser was switched to Netscape.
I've reset all renamed programs but there's no change.
I typically run Mozilla Firefox, but now IE is all that will start. I noticed limeware on my desktop, which was probably loaded by another family user.
I can get Firefox going by getting an "open with" on an existing file and working past the error.
How do I get my apps to run? and remove whatever infection exists??
