Restart - Startup are definitely faster. Still getting "Error 1706-No valid source could be found for Logitech Quick Cam" - continues looping until shut down with task manager.
Adobe photo downloader runs in task bar when started, I have tried removing this from Add/Remove programs. Continues to load on startup.
When I open Internet Explorer, 2 iexplore.exe running processes start - should there be 2?
I have a number of old programs that I cannot seem to remove using Add/Remove Programs, as I no longer have the installation software
Can I get rid of these somehow?

Yep.
Downlad Revo Uninstaller from here:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Download and install it.
Once installed, run the program.

Find what software you want gone, select it, then press "Uninstall" or "Remove" at the top.

Wow, things are working much better now, thank you. I have run anti-virus in safe and normal mode, no problems. Have cleared up a lot of space on the old c: drive.
Can I get rid of all the stuff on my desktop now? Anything else I should be doing?
Your time and knowledge is greatly appreciated.

No, that should do it. Delete all the tools we used.

We need to make a new restore point.

To turn off System Restore, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. Click the System Restore tab.
3. Click the Turn off System Restore check box (or the Turn off System Restore on all drives check box), and then click OK.
4. Click Yes when you receive the prompt to the turn off System Restore.

Now we need to make a new restore point.
To turn on System Restore, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. Click the System Restore tab.
3. Click the Turn off System Restore check box (To turn on System Restore), and then click OK.

Below I have included a number of recommendations for how to protect your computer in order to prevent future malware infections. Please take these recommendations seriously; these few simple steps can stave off the vast majority of spyware problems. As happy as we are to help you, for your sake we would rather not have repeat customers. Goofy

1) Please navigate to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and download all the "critical updates" for Windows. This can patch many of the security holes through which attackers can gain access to your computer.

Please either enable Automatic Updates under Start -> Control Panel -> Automatic Updates , or get into the habit of checking for Windows updates regularly. I cannot stress enough how important this is.

2) In order to protect yourself against spyware, you should consider installing and running the following free programs:

A tutorial on using Ad-Aware to remove spyware from your computer may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
A tutorial on using Spybot to remove spyware from your computer may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Please also remember to enable Spybot's "Immunize" and "TeaTimer" features.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster to prevent spyware from ever installing on your computer may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
A tutorial on using SpywareGuard for realtime protection against spyware and hijackers may be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Make sure to keep these programs up-to-date and to run them regularly, as this can prevent a great deal of spyware hassle.

3) Please consider using an alternate browser. Mozilla's Firefox browser is fantastic; it is much more secure than Internet Explorer, immune to almost all known browser hijackers, and also has the best built-in popup blocker (as an added benefit!) that I have ever seen. If you are interested, Firefox may be downloaded from here:

I also recommand the following add-ons for Firefox, they will help keep you safe from malicious scripts or activeX exploits.

4) Also make sure to run your antivirus software regularly, and to keep it up-to-date.

To help you keep your software updated, please considering using this free software program that will check for program updates.

5) Finally, consider maintaining a firewall. Some good free firewalls are [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], or

Hopefully this should take care of your problems! Good luck. Big Grin

Created new restore point. Seems to be one lingering problem with Windows Update. Keeps indicating that I need old critical update Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 -- when trying to install the following error keeps coming up:
SL44.tmp - Common Language Runtime Debugging Services

Process id=0x830 (2096), Thread id=0xc90 (3216)
Click OK to terminate
Click CANCEL to debug

Should I be worried about this? It is coming up as a critical update when system starts and when going to Windows Update site.


I really like Ad Aware SE, that is their older program is it not? Can you still get updates for it or do you recommend the newer Ad Aware version?

That update is not critical.

I don't really like Adaware, their methods aren't that good.

MBAM is just smoother and faster working on the system.
