My 16 year old daughter downloaded blubster and afterwards, we began to get pop ups all the time. So, I uninstalled it and now when we start up the computer, we get a softwrap file error 1 message everytime. I read other posts about this, and all I learned was to uninstall blubster, which I have already done. Can anyone tell me what to do to remove this error message?

A:softwrap file error 1

Is this when you log on?

Try checking your startup items to see if blubster is there?
To do this

Code:
- Click Start->Run
- Type "msconfig.exe" and press enter
- In Msconfig click the startup tab
- Look for some program related to blubster
Cheers,
Jamey

I use Video Studio 10 which seems to install the registry key below which Spybot identifies as Grokloader.
HKEY_USERS..............\Software\Softwrap\Adtracker
Spybot will remove the key but it reappears whenever Video Studio is run.
Is this really malware and, if so, how can it be removed?
Thanks!

About a year ago I installed a cyber sitter called "iProtectyou" on my son's computer. I decided to uninstall it for him recently because it didn't work, and it only seemed to give him a hassle when he tried to use the internet or play games. When I tried to reinstall it, it would not take the password I used (I could of forgotten it, but I had it written down).

After hours of trying to uninstall it, I went to the internet and Googled how to get rid of cyber sitter's with a forgotten password. Luckily there were several people with the same problem. I downloaded the applications they gave out on the site, and eventually got rid of it. They also had me go to the "Registry Editor" (run: regedit) and screw around in there. The program still shows up in "Programs and Features" but theirs no publisher now, and I still cannot install it. Except now, instead of asking for a password, it just says that their was an error with database.

Now when ever we open up anything, we are swarmed with windows telling us "Crictical Error Occured While Opening Database."

Any help would be great.

Every time the computer is turned on or restarted it runs Starup Repair. When i look at the diagnosis it says 'boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupt'. I have already tried to restore the computer but i don't have the discs where i have backed up the computer. I have also run a virus scan with Avira and it did pick up 4 viruses and i removed them but the error still occurs. If someone could help me and give me guidance it'll be much appreciated.

A:Startup Repair error : Boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupted

After the PC tries the start up repair, select advanced options. From there you should be able to access CMD.

Once you get CMD open run this command. sfc /scannow -This will scan the integrity of all protected system files and repairs the system files if needed.

Hello.

I'm not sure what nasty I have. In normal mode, I get three critical error messages like below with different file numbers.

---------------
Critical Error!
Windows was unable to save all the components for the file \System32\496A8300. The file is corrupted or unreadable. The error may be caused by a PC hardware problem.
-------------

I have a black screen, can run nothing, cannot access files, cannot connect to the internet.

In safe mode, I can get the files to display and can access a CD and external hard drive, but still cannot access the internet.

I used a laptop to transfer DeFogger, DDS, and GMER. I ran Defogger, obtained DDS logs, but twice GMER caused a stop screen error: RQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and dumped the memory - had to reboot.

Previously, I had run rkill, TDSS, and MBAM. Once, the TDSS log indicated it had stopped C:\WINDOWS\system32\grpcon.exe - I believe it was the third time I ran it. Otherwise I get zero files terminated. I cannot run MBAM. I get run-time error '53' mbamnet. I tried using randmbam.exe, but was still unsuccessful after 10 attempts.

I get locked up in safe mode and have to turn off the computer and restart the whole process. This morning, I missed the safe mode tap and when starting up in normal, Spybot popped up and stated it had terminated a file called win32.zbot.

I got another call from my Dad today. After cleaning his computer completely last month with help from BleepingComputer.com there is another problem so I went to check it out. I can't believe it.

Now on startup a fake system scan runs with many warning of I/O errors and critical hard drive problems. It tries to take you to file-recovery-system.com to buy something. Obviously it is a virus/hijack. I searched on the web for fixes and was able to use RKill.exe to at least stop the process and the warnings. I tried to install MBAM but the install failed twice, I get a permission denied warning. I tried to install after restarting in safe mode, but had the same access denied at the end of the install.

Computer is Windows 7. I am posting from my clean computer since the browser redirects on his computer make it almost impossible.

My internet stopped working tonight, so I restarted it. When it restart it went directly to Startup Repair, it wasn't able to automatically fix anything. I've tried restarting it and even removed the hardrive and it does the same thing. I can't get past the startup repair screen. It is more or less shutdown and restart, contact the administrator or your computer provider. The "root cause" seems to be the following:

A:Need Help:Boot Critical File C

Hello,

This is very strange. Normally from this position we would insert the Windows CD, boot to the Recovery Console and we would send you a list of commands to copy back the file from your Vista DVD. However, I do not have this file on my working Vista Home Premium, and searching Google comes up with not a single hit. It is a bit strange for a virus, but I suppose it could be. It is not any normal System file, or any normal file of any program. It is not even showing up in manual virus removal websites. Also, have you tried Safe Mode and Last Known Good Configuration?

In a stupid moment I ran an exe which probaly contained malware... I saw MSE popping-up a warning that it detected 2 virus infections but before I had the chance to click "Remove it" the PC rebooted. It got into an endless loop of failing to repair startup issues. Within the log file, there was a bit of helpful information, ?Boot Critical File d:\ci.dll Corrupted?. Searching Google I found it is probably a rootkit or something like that.

From the recovery console i tried following things:
I tried restoring to the previous system restore point.
I tried restoring the ci.dll with sfc /scanfile=d:\ci.dll but that fails with the message: "There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete..."
Then I tried restoring the master boot record using bootsect /nt60 d: but that failes with the message "... The update may be unreliable since volume could not be locked during the update: Access is denied".
I also tried running FRST64.Exe but that crashes during the scan: "Line 3294 (File F:/FRST64.exe) Error: Error in expression"

Anybody who can help resolve this or is the only way out a clean install and does that guarantee that the rootkit is removed?

The problems started yesterday when my computer went to blue screen and automatically shut down and restarted. This happened twice, then I did an AVG scan in Safe Mode. It placed several infections and a few malwares into the virus vault. However, it "did not test" dozens of files because they were "locked". There were Boot directeries that were listed among the locked files.

I restarted in Normal Mode, and got a message that Windows found a malicious file and "partially removed" it. When I clicked on the message to find details about the file, this webpage popped up: Encyclopedia entry: TrojanOS/Alureon.A - Learn more about malware - Microsoft Malware Protection Center
So the infection was TrojanOS/Alureon.A (edited to add: the smiley face appears where : D [without the space] is in the trojan filename)

About an hour later, the computer crashed and restarted again, then again a few minutes later. I did another scan and no malicious files were found.

When I turned the computer on 20 minutes ago, I got a screen telling me that the computer was unable to start, and Windows was searching for solutions. It apparently worked because I'm using the computer now. However, when I clicked to see the details of what happened, I saw this: "Boot critical file c:\windows\system32\kdcom.dll is corrupt".

So I don't know if it fixed the file or if it's still corrupt. I'm concerned my computer will have trouble rebooting. Thanks for any help in... Read more

I was downloading a file from the internet, about half way through the download the computer shutdown and restarted.

On restart, the computer stated that Windows 7 could not load and started to do a startup repair, which did not succeed.

I opened Startup Repair and Diagnostics and the report log stated:

Boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupt.

I have tried system restore at several points and run sfc /scannow, which told me to reboot my computer, but I kept going round in a loop from there.

I suspect that I am infected and would appreciate your help and guidance on this.

Thank you.

Hello, I was downloading what appeared to be an update for Java but about halfway through the download my computer shut down and restarted.

On restart, the computer stated that Windows 7 could not load and started to do a startup repair, which did not succeed.

I opened Startup Repair and Diagnostics and the report log stated:

Boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupt.

I have tried system restore at several points and run sfc /scannow, which told me to reboot my computer, but I kept going round in a loop from there.

I suspect I have the exact same problem as referenced by Jan Soall and solved by m0le and farbar (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic396014.html). My computer is also a Toshiba and does not come with a disk to re-install Windows. I've picked up right where farbar started assisting on the thread and have downloaded and run frst64.exe. The resulting log is below.

Thank you SO MUCH for helping me with this.

Hi,

PC spec - Windows 7 Pro (32-bit) Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB Ram, 2x 250GB HDD

I think I have succesfully removed a Root Kit virus using Kaspersky TDSS Killler but would just like to make sure no other malware etc remains. I'll explain from the beginning.

1. PC was running fine then Windows start-up repair appeared. In the diagnostic & repair details it spotted an error - Boot Critical File E:\CI.dll is corrupt

2. could not repair, restarted, PC would'nt boot up

2. I searched online and found a thread recommending to use Kaspersky TDSS Killer.

3. the thread advised to boot-up with signature verification disabled (F10) - This worked but before I could use the TDSSKiller, the PC crashed. There was also several Trojans and worms being detected, eg: W32/Blaster.worm by what looked like windows defender, but not sure - having searched google about these, it may be a fake Anti Virus software running. I read W32/Blaster.worm does not affect windows 7? and nothing is being found on scans.

The signature verification option did'nt work after that PC crashed

4 Instead I created a windows recovery CD using a different PC - this allowed me to start the PC into Command Prompt MS DOS.

5 I ran the TDSS Killer Software directly from the a CD - after scan finished it said something about MBR, and use standard boot option, (sorry can't remember exact line) I clicked on yes to use standard.

6 PC restarted again as normal and everything seems to be running fine.

There have been a few of these lately.

Suggest you try running sfc SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

Try a malware scan from a bootable a/v Avira AntiVir Rescue System - Download

If necessary replace ci.dll from another source e.g installation dvd.

Quick background: I've been an IT admin for a major university for the past 12 years managing 300+ Windows and Mac user machines. So, this likely isn't your average network connectivity/name resolution/permissions/firewall issue.

I have an important user's Windows 7 Enterprise (32 bit) machine that cannot connect to any windows file shares (Known good ones on multiple servers). At this point I would have normally just wiped the Windows install out and reinstalled but the user apparently has had this issue for many months (Possibly since May) and hadn't noticed. This resulted in his home directory being stuck in an offline state and all of his modifications are "stuck" on this laptop.

To further complicate things, before I knew the extent of the problem, I removed it from our domain and whatever issue is plaguing this windows install also is preventing me from being able to re-add it to the domain. Therefore I cannot login as the user with the cached offline files at the moment.

Here's what works:
-DNS name resolution
-NetBIOS/WINS name resolution
-Pinging the machines with the shared volumes
-Web access

Here's what doesn't work:
-Accessing any file shares. After about 30 seconds the error says "Windows cannot access \\servername\share"
-Accessing local file shares (i.e. \\127.0.0.1\c$ ...\temp, etc.). I get the same error here.
-The network troubleshooter doesn't find any problems.

The above behavior is the same whether conne... Read more

A:Critical file sharing issue

Well, couldn't get the file share access thing worked out but I did some experimenting on another Win7 machine and figured out how to get another user's offline files back (Assuming you have admin rights).

Here's what I did:
-Disable offline files
-Navigate to c:\windows\csc
-Take ownership of the directory and all sub directories
-Assign your account full control permissions
-Copy the files you want out of there

This sounds relatively simple but I was very paranoid about messing up the files in the process. Windows XP used to keep offline files in some sort of convaluted/compressed format that was not really usable on its own. Apparently they changed this is Win 7 and that's a good thing.

Hi there,
I have been having several errors- one being a Blue Screen Error (which has been occuring for probably over a year now, every so often) and another one occuring only on my other account on this computer (which says something along the lines of "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute.") right after logging in (after some programs have loaded). I never really bothered with resolving the Blue Screen Error because it wasn't that serious to me- though it was very annoying, but this new critical error when I log into my other account is REALLY frustrating to deal with. I am not new to computers and have quite a bit of knowledge about them, so don't worry about holding back any details or technical explanations, I'll probably understand most of it. Anyways, here is the problem report for the Blue Screen Error:

Hiya,

The missus has a mini notebook (ee) that has Windows 7 starter on it. Whilst using it last night, there were some updates from Microsoft available, and I set the updates in motion.

One of them was to install Explorer 9, and I declined that, as this is the wifes computer and she uses it for work, didn't want to stuff anything up.

Delayed doing the restart for a while as i was still doing some minoer work on a Word doc.

When it went to restart, it went into a screen trying to auto fix and issue. After much time and multiple attempts, it could not do it, and any restart went into the same mode.

In the end, it could not fix the issue.

From the error report, the following message comes up ;

Boot critical file
c:\windows\system\system32\ntkrnlpa.exe is corrupt
Error code 0xa

As this is a mini notebook, it doesn't have any floppy disc etc, and I can't even get it to start in safe mode to try and fix.

Help !!!

Thanks

Michael

That is the Windows NT Kernel.

Try and boot using the HDD recovery partition - try system repair from there.

While the timing with the Windows Updates may make hardware failure seem unlikely - it is a possibility.

0xa = driver referenced invalid or bad memory. It could be either software or hardware (specifically RAM) related.

I was downloading a file from the internet, about half way through the download the computer shutdown and restarted.

On restart, the computer stated that Windows 7 could not load and started to do a startup repair, which did not succeed.

I opened Startup Repair and Diagnostics and the report log stated:

Boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupt.

I have tried system restore at several points and run sfc /scannow, which told me to reboot my computer, but I kept going round in a loop from there.

I would appreciate some help and guidance on this. Thank you.

A:[SOLVED] Boot critical file c:/ci.dll is corrupt

This error has been known to be caused by Windows Updates. Every reference I've read on that issue required a re-install of Windows 7 since nothing else worked.

Provided you've taken the sensible precaution of backing up your files before that happened, re-installing will not involve losing anything. Better still, if you've created a "System Image" which Windows 7 allows you to do (& which everyone should do as soon as possible after installation), restoring Windows will be even easier.

Hi,

I'm an intern with an NGO organization where one of the desktop computers started having problems about a week ago. The computer is a Dell running Windows 7. Every morning, the first person to turn it on sees a whole bunch of updates being installed. The boot screen is irregular, it doesn't include the F2 or F12 options for changing the setup, and it never goes to the log screen. Instead, it goes to a "Startup Repair" window, runs a "scan" that can't be canceled, and then reports that Windows was unable to fix the problem and offers an option to restart. If I click to see the full diagnostic, everything checks out except the last item, which says that "critical boot file ci.dll is corrupt." If I go to "Advanced Diagnostic Tools," it doesn't allow to me do a system restore or much of anything else besides open the command prompt, and I can do only limited diagnostic tasks from there. If I restart, though, it restarts and functions perfectly normally. I installed Avast on there when I started working with it and the full virus scan finds no problems. The computer functions normally for the rest of the day; however, when I go to shut it down after 5 oclock, it says that it's installing 67 updates, every single day.

I can't figure out whether this is some bizarre virus that just makes it take a little longer to use the computer every morning, or a much more malicious virus whose effects simply haven't mani... Read more

Someone told me that I'd need the Windows DVD version of my version of Windows to fix this and a repair install doing? I have no idea what that means and the only DVD I have is a recovery one I made via the laptop a month or so ago, which someone told me if I use could wipe all my data and I really don't want that to happen. 
 

 
 
Thank you for reading. 

A:boot critical file c\windows\system32\drivers\ksedd.sys

Try performing a repair installation.  This will require the installation disc, if you do not have one you can download a ISO image and burn it to a disc to create one in the instruction as Window Vista Forums.

Hi.
In this order,

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
You may need to run it 2-3 times to "fix" everything.

Run RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Let it run until at least 9 passes are completed, or errors are found (whichever comes first). The longer you run it, the better.


Finish with the above steps and post back with results\news.

If you have time I have a large problem with my computer. When I startup get a "RUNDLL" message popup stating "Error loading C:\Program Files\WildTangent\Apps\CSA\cdaEngine0400.dll The specified module could not be found" -- On occasion I also get one that says "The system has recovered from a serious error." and another one everytime I startup saying "winxah.32.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." This causes me to reboot and I must do it every time or leave the message up, technically keeping errors all over my computer and i cant really do much

Please help promptly if it's not asking too much --- I have important things to do on my computers. Thhhhhhhaaaannnnkkk YYYYYoooouuuu!!!!!
 

A:Critical Error(s)

The first error is referring to WildTangent which is considered spyware.

The second I have never seen before but it may be spyware related as well.

Hi,

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to hopefully bring up the task manager. Click on the file menu then click run. This should hopefully bring up a Run box in which you should type cmd. This should now bring up the console. The next and final step is in the console type chkdsk /r.
This runs a diagnostic on the hdd and tries to repair any bad sectors.

Hope this helps

Hi and welcome

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Hi

Been having problems with my router which appear to have been caused by uninstalling Norton. However although I can now configure my router it wont connect to the internet.

Checking the relevant service dependencies gives a WMI Critical Error. Further investigation in the event viewer shows the following;

WinMgmt could not initialize the core parts. This could be due to a badly installed version of WinMgmt, WinMgmt repository upgrade failure, insufficient disk space or insufficient memory.

Can this be reinstalled easily ??

Cheers

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.

Since it does have something to do with heating...I have dusted my computer with the canned air stuff and as for fans and such...i got a heat sink on top of the cpu.

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!
Click here to download HJTInstall.exe

Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
Click on Install.
It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Started getting this flashing pop up threatening to steal all my passwords etc yesterday on various pages.
So i spent the day running adw cleaner and jrt and spybot and spyhunter etc which cleared out some temp files and fixed a few registry issues but today it's back again.
So i'm here again looking for help.
 
After running FRST I deleted and uninstalled a bunch of files and programmes from mcafee, mywinlocker, all the acer games, old avg files etc
I just noticed you have a self help page now but I'm not sure if this error message was the same one.
So hopefully you dont mind checking through my logs

I've been having that same exact problem. And so far, I have some toolbar that says protection bar, remove adware popups, SPAM protectiom, Scan for spyware, and Security test. And each one redirects you to some spyware they want you to buy. I also have two icons on the bottom toolar of my computer where one is just a triangular yellow sign with an exclamation point and it keeps having this popup come up that says System Alert: [email protected] And another one that flashes between a question mark and a blue circle with an X in the middle. That one just keeps saying critical system warning or something. Ive downloaded SpyBoth S&D, and deleted around 50 things, but it still hasn't fixed these, I also have AVG on my computer. I might download more, but apparently I've already done too much downloading. I con only hope that this log from HijackThis helps...

Hi and welcome

I have split your post off into your own thread. In the future if you have a Question/Problem please start a "New Thread".
It gets too confusing trying to address two different people's problem in the same thread and you may get overlooked.

Please continue in this thread.

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

I have found a fully automated fix to correct both the Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware and Giant AntiSpyware 'Critical Error 101' which I will share with you at Grinler's request. I have tested it and retested it on my system numerous times.It consists of a DOS batch which uses the pskill utility by Sysinternals to automate the killing of the process gcasServ.exe for XP home or Windows 2000 users. XP Pro users do not need to download pskill and may use the taskkill utility which comes with the XP Pro Operating system. See *Note below.XP Pro users - use the line in the batch with taskkill and omit the pskill line in the batchXP home or Windows 2000 users - use pskill and omit the taskkill line in the batch. You may download pskill from Sysinternals, which operates the same way as taskkill and unzip it to C:\Windows.Directions:1.) Copy the text in the quote box to a notepad text file.2.) If you have XP Pro, omit the line in bold below from the text file which reads: "pskill gcasServ.exe", and proceed to step 4.3.) If you have XP Home or Windows 2000, delete the line in bold which reads: "taskkill /F /IM gcasServ.exe" from the text file, and then save the file as in step 4.4.) Save the file to your desktop as 101fix.bat, NOT 101fix.txt. (To do that, be sure to set the "save as type' to all files)5. ) To run, Just double-click the 101fix.bat icon on your desktop whenever you get the critical 101 error. If you stiill experience problems, see the **... Read more

I manually restarted my computer since it froze up. After restarting, my desktop is completely different and everything is gone. I get a "critical error" message.

In the alert bubble, I get this message:

SLI multi-GPU rendering has been changed to independent GPU rendering because one of your SLI cards has been removed. SLI multi-GPU rendering requires 2 or more graphics cards.

I go to "explore" mode and I find that my desktop is now the desktop under "All Users." The desktop with all of my stuff on it is under the "<My Name>" folder in the C drive. (My name is what I registered the computer under, which is Logan).

So everything is still on my computer. It's just my computer is no longer displaying it on my desktop. It's a whole new desktop now. I even tried opening Firefox and it acted as if I had just installed it.

I open my computer itself and check to see why the error says a card has been removed, but everything is as it was. I even checked my display properties and the computer is still running under my GForce 6600GT.

I need to figure out how to restore everything back to how it was. How can I return everything to how it was before this mess happened?

On first startup this morning I was greeted with a long windows (win 7) loading screen. After a few reboots and patience I was greeted with winlogon.exe errors. After rebooting into safemode, it was ok and I ran a quick malewarebytes scan which was clean. A reboot into normal mode resulted in critical error-shutdown. A few more attempts either resulted in blue screens or critical errors. No longer able to log into safemode without the same issues. ran farbar64 bit and I didnt see anything that required attention.

Contrary to popular believe, Malwarebytes is not an anti virus app. I'm guessing your system is infected. I'm going to ask the staff to move this to a more appropriate forum.

Hi, everybody. I downloaded Windows 10 from the the Microsoft site, because I had reserved a free copy. I had Window 8.1 before this.

Up till now, it seems that most things worked fine. I tweaked it a little and allowed the new program to "get used to my desktop." After first being unable to transfer stuff over, Windows 10 finally began complying with requests for switching things, etc.

A brand-new problem has begun with the Start icon, which is the Micro "flag" at the lower left of the screen. Every time I hit it in order to sign off, I get a message..... "Critical Error. Your Start Menu button isn't working. We'll try to fix it the next time you sign in." It offers me a box to sign off within the error message, fortunately. I went on line and found that a number of people are experiencing this same problem. And many of their concerns are directed to others in the Microsoft Community website. By the way, it doesn't happen all the time, only most of the time. When it doesn't happen, it seems to be because I've cleared by temporary files, emptied my trash bin, and deleted the adware that has accumulated with each use. If I'm lucky, that is.

Another thing I've noticed. I use Superantispyware, among other malware detectors. I've used it for XP, 8.1 and now 10. Each time it has picked up a bit more adware and minor spyware. But, recently, I have found that when I'm done PC-ing and ready to shut down, af... Read more

You may also like to save these instructions in word/notepad to the desktop where they can be easily found for the same reasons as above. A print out of the instructions would be a good reference to make sure you don't yet lost.Also, it is important that you complete the instructions in the right order, and also that you don't miss any steps out!If you have any queries about the process or just general questions, just ask.You are using the LimeWire and BearShare p2p file sharing program.This is not technically malware by itself, but it installs malware in order to run properly.It also opens the door for every other nasty program you can think of. I strongly recommend that you remove it from your computer.Read this article for alternatives that will provide some of the same function without the garbage: http://www.spywareinfo.com/articles/p2p/I suggest you remove the program now.
