For Starteers:

spybot click here

adaware click here

a squared. click here

down load each, and run. If they don't auto update on first run, update then run. Then move on to the next. If this does not shift it, post back.

Thankyou very much guys......I already had adaware installed and up to date...it found nothing, a-squared found nothing but Spybot got the beggar......I ended up with a message at startup saying it couldn't open prog files wildtangent cdaengine0400dll.....I know I haven't installed any wildtangent stuff so did a search and deleted anything I found to do with it....I then unticked in startup the cdaEngine0400 thing...I hope I did right as all seems well now....once again, many thanks to the two of you. Andy
