Hi there idiotpcuser, welcome to BC! :thumbsup:

If my assumption is correct, you are trying to use the "Casino on Net" program?

Casino on Net, while a legit program, may be classified as adware by some anti-virus and anti-spyware programs. Can you tell us which anti-virus and anti-spyware you use (and whether the Casino on Net worked before you installed them or before your last scan?)

Casinonet is adware. That is, it serves up advertisements to the user. Also, according to some reports, it transmits info about the user to third parties without consent.

Are you sure you want to use this program? There are many other casino games out there!

If you do, let us know and we can try to help fix it; if not, we can help remove it and clean your system.

hello again-

i have been using this casino program for some time now, and i have been quite content. is there a real threat? i don't gamble on this site, just play cards, so no financial or real personal info is at risk, right?

also, from time to time i return to my computer and find this note once i have rebooted it; verbatim-"You received this message because a device driver installed on your computer caused the Windows operating system to stop unexpectedly. This type of error is referred to as a "stop error." A stop error requires you to restart your computer." this is part of the given explanation microsoft offers after i permit to report the error.

is all of this related?

does it deny certain programs, have a new sound (driver?) problem, and need to restart on its own from time-to-time, for the same reason(s)?

thanks for any advice in advance,
B
