Have you looked in "Add\Remove Programs" in the Control Panel? You want to start over? Do you either have the XP disks or restore disks that came with the computer?

yes i looked at the remove facilities.....it is not on the list...........therefore my question--i believe it to be and to have been installed in someother piece of software.......it is not stand alone there on that list with that name or anthing else i dont recogonize

doing the restore is really my last resort........but i am out of effort on cleaning up my gear......i have deleted most everything and still dont have much space............17%-----------my guess is it should be around 50% or it was in the past.

thanks for your help

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.
A member of the HijackThis Team will walk you through, step by step, how to disinfect your computer.
Once you post your log, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

Read Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log.

Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link below.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/ Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, as these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.


Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
