i have a presario sr1200nx w/xp sp2 AMD
upon running spy bot s&d it identified "wild tangent" 9 entries.
i went to remove (fix) them and every thing was fine till i rebooted.
a RUNDLL error apeared in a small window center screen.
ERROR loading C:\Program Files\WildTangent\Apps\CDA\cda Engine0400.dll
then i remembered that when i went to "downloadthis" site
i had downloaded "ancient pyramid" game. i remember seeing wild tangent associated with the game.
i used up my 60min of free time with the game and then used the "uninstall" program with the game to remove it.
i guess my question here is,
is my sh-t ok? is this wild tangent just part of a game that sb s&d thinks is or could be potentialy harmfull? everything, so far, seems to be ok.
now i under stand from reading the tutorials that it can be up to the admin of the pc as to what is good or bad.
i am your typical un-educated new pc user. i got this pc for my wife for xmas and am trying to manage it for her.
im a little shell shocked cause the pc was highjacked instantly upon connecting up to the net via dsl. we didnt install any of the programs on the desk top till we needed them. as a result, IE was installed and she went on line with no protection or firewall. thats what you get for not reading and just plugging in. its been cleaned by a trusted inlaw.
now im trying to get familiar with programs and such.
i sorry for the rambelings.
please help, oh loards of the computer world.
thank you sirs and mams.
