Download and run Issues. It removes 'leftovers' from un-installed software. You can safely delete anything it finds click here

What issues? C Cleaner?

MoveOnBoot should get rid of the dll file from click here

On the web page, click on File Utilities and scroll down to the bottom of the page to Old Version (Freeware). After installing, right click the dll file and in the context menu you will have an option "Delete file(s) on the next boot".

I take it you don't have CCleaner.

'Issues' is one of the clean up options available within CCleaner.

Many thanks for the info.

I have C Cleaner but have used it only once, found it rather severe!

I'll gen up on 'issues'.

Thanks again

CCleaner is one of the best free registry and crap cleaners available and is regularly recommended in these Forums.

It does appear severe, particularly the first time you run 'Issues', because there is usually a lot of redundant bits and pieces to clean out, especially if you have installed and un-installed a lot of software in the past!

Thereafter, especially if used regularly, you'll find there is a lot less rubbish for it to deal with.

You can safely delete anything that it finds.

If you're a bit nervous it does give you the option to back up your registry before deleting stuff.

For what it's worth, I've been using it for about 6 months now, I've NEVER backed up my registry and never had any problems with it.

A friend has recently both upgraded to XP and changed to broadband.
His web pages now load very slowly and have big blank areas on them.
He has also started to get a message up all the time telling him to connect to Global E-access.
I think it may be a virus but he hasn't been able to detect anything using AVG.
He has a 40Gb HDD and 1.7Gb processor.
Any ideas?

Sorry about that, I'll post it where it should go!!
