I have been receiving notice " the program failed to initialize properly." I have run Spybot Search and Destroy, Spyblaster, AdAware Personal SE and my Norton Internet Security system time after time and slowly but surely have removed some of the adware that entered my computer. BUT...this MediaAccK.exe seems to be imbedded pretty good. Can someone tell me how to rid my HP of this blight?

Hi computerdumdum and welcome to BC

You need to remove Media Access from Add/Remove programs, delete the mediaacc.exe and mediaaccess.exe files and then find and delete the C:\Program Files\Media Access folder. If you were to post a HiJack This log as detailed here the HJT team can help you out to.

It is adware.

Download, update and use the Microsoft Anti-Spyware beta:

Try running this one too:

Thank you Leurgy and Enthusiast with your help I think I got this thing out . I have a good freind who is quite literate and he is also always there if I need him but it is certainly nice to be able to "pick" someone elses brain for once. My freind also suggested I go into task manager and eliminaate MediaAcc.exe from the processes. I did this but it kept reappearing. I right clicked on the MediaAcc.exe and shut it down by the END PROCESS TREE tab. I will run the scans one more time to make sure but I think I have had a victory. Thanks again, computerdumdum
