"STATIC" problem

  so3003 19:34 09 Sep 2005

Whenever I click a link to open a new internet explorer window, my system seems to stop - and on pressing ctrl+alt+del I find a program called "STATIC" (block capitals) running, and when I choose to end this the system starts moving again. Can't seem to figure out what this program is, and virus / adware etc scans (with latest definitions etc) haven't shown anything up.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks, that is exactly the same problem I am having. Unfortunately this group haven't got any idea what it is either!

Do a search for Static. Where is Static located?

Right-click it & select Properties, then Version. What does it say?

What happens when you try to delete it? G

Doesn't find it when I search unfortunately.

Running Windows 98, IE6, AVG antivirus, ZoneAlarm, Ad-Aware, latest updates of everything etc etc

I don't know if it'll help, but it's better than doing nothing I suppose. G
