No you got it right

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter, click start up to look for anything similar to ca4py5vw, if it is there, remove the tick(s), click apply then reboot to see if you can remove it

Use search, including hidden and system files to look for CA etc, try to remove those, send them to the recycle bin, leave them there, reboot the PC if they go, if not try to get a clue as to the programme they are from

Click start then run, type regedit then press enter

Expand HKEY_Local_Machine then go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace If it's there, delete it.


All my own work :tazz:
