    get your self a copy of ad-aware
    http://www.lavasoft.usa.com

    also pick up "Spy Bot (Search and Destroy)"

    both are excellent spyware/ malware/ adware killers


    also for shits and giggles try using an anti-virus software to see if the program is a virus

    i have used spy bot search and destroyed; it destroyed it all right but the sucker came back, somehow. i will try again anyways. i think i will try a virus scanner/anti-virus program; can you guys suggest a good one? dont even say McAffee(spl?), i used that; up to date and everything and still caught the loveletter virus.

    thx crx-yem for the reply.

    no prob, best antivirus out there is Norton Antivirus.

    if spybot got rid of it and it came back, it's acting more like a virus
