Looks like malware. have you updated and scanned PC with antivirus and spyware from safe mode?
can you give a full path to it?
Eg: C:\ windows.....

Hi,

Re-installing was probably unnecessary. Why didn't you just give boopme the full path to the file, and maybe he could've helped you on from there...

Just a thought.

To which I reply:

"But you can hold his freaking head under the durned water until he drowns!"

Seriously, if they can't be trusted, make some consequences for them.

For example, charge them for spyware/virus removal and let them earn the money by helping around the house.
And/or, cutoff the internet until it's fixed, or until they've learned their lesson.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
