Old user, but don't remember how to run beginning scripts.
Obviously had "Defense Center" on system. Suspect teenagers but don't really know how it got into the computer (hate to think i did this myself). Ran through the help steps to remove Defense Center and thought the problem was over. However, I'm still getting pop-up web sites and several programs do not run properly (Especially my Outlook and AutoCAD software). I have to restart the computer to get these programs to work. Computer almost never shuts down now by itself and I have to hold the power button to get it to go off.
I get a scripting error often for all kinds of programs that are trying to run. The "just in time debugger" pops up trying to find the error.
Tried to gather initial system analysis files for you but the dds.scr script returns an error that says "this program cannot run in dos mode".

Had Defense Center and tried to remove it. Still having problems. Running through your step-by-step guide to post new problems. Can't get past dds.scr commmand. Computer not letting this script run. From windows it opens a window full of jibberish with the line "this program cannot run in DOS mode". If i execute dds.scr from a DOS command window I get the error "cscript.exe - Entry Point Not Found, The procedure entry point DoOpenPipeStram could ot be located in hte dynamic link librayr ScrRun.dll"
Please give me some direction on how to get these initial analysis files posted to you so we can start a fix. Thanks
