netmeter problems

  technique 20:58 05 Mar 2004

every so often I get messages about netmeter. the messages usually appear after a lengthy delay in opening applications (usually IE). what is the function of netmeter, is it an essential application that needs to run in the background and if not how do i disable it so it doesn't slow my pc down?

Got any programs like Kazaa, Morpheus or Grokster ? if so have a look in the registry for the key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run' in the right hand pane is there a value `netmeter` and/or `premeter` . If there you probably have spyware installed .

i do have Kazaa, so if I have spyware installed how do I remove it without loosing Kazaa - or is that the price u pay for downloading free media?

I would check the registry first , to make sure it is indeed that .
