Complete novice when it comes to this kind of thing....

I need to delete some directories but dont know how to as well as registry keys. can someone help me
Im running XP pro.

Use "Registry Mechanic" and delete the "directories" as you would normally i.e highlight it and press the "del" key

If you are a complete novice DO NOT delete registry keys. Make a mistake and you could render the computer unbootable.

Tell us what the problem is and we will be able to give you much better directed help.

Which directories and registry keys do you want to delete, and why?

take this step with the greatest caution. delete anything wrongly and you may loose you system, necessitating a complete reformat. why are you doing this? unless something is interupting seriously i would think twice. as you said yourself a complete novice. a little knowledge can sometimes be more dangerous than none at all

Have you tried this: Go to Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel, choose the 'NavHelper' and click 'Remove'

Have you also tried scanning with anti-spyware programs? There are 2 good, free ones: AdAware click here and Spybot - Search & Destroy click here

Download and install both, tell them to check for updates (they may offer to do this automatically) and then run a scan with each. Spybot has been able to detect and emove this since Novembr, 2003.

You should then run check frequently with them to make sure that you have not picked up any more malware.

press control-alt-delete, click on task manager-processes, see if anything with navexcel is running, if there is highlight it, and click on end process.

Then try your navexcel remover.
