I ran all the programs that you advised me to run . Both Spybot - Search and Destory and Ad-Aware and I am still having problems. The programs were unable to get rid of d?xplore.exe. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi dmj923 and welcome to the BC forums. Before we get started with a fix I need some information on that file. Please do the following.

Open Notepad and copy/paste the text from the quotebox below into the new document:

dir C:\WINDOWS\system32\d?xplore.exe /a h > files.txt notepad files.txt

Include the information from the files.txt file in your next post.

Save the document to your desktop as findfile.bat and close Notepad. Locate the findfile.bat file on your desktop and double-click on it to run it. Notepad should open up with some information in it. Include that information in your next post.

Post back here with the information from running findfile.bat and I will review it when it comes in.

Cheers.

OT
I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.
