Hi VoG the unblocker got rid of the dll but the event viewer now says that that boot-start or system-start driver failed to load VFILT

Hi VoG sorry about the delay in replying i went into device managers hidden devices and found entries relating to outpost firewall:
outpost firewall kernel driver
ditto plugin ADBLOCK.DLL ARP.DLL CONTENT.DLL FTPFILT.DLL HTMFILT.DLL HTTPFILT.DLL IMAPFILT.DLL MAILFILT.DLL NNTPFILT.DLL POP3FILT.DLL PROTECT.DLL SECRET.DLL all of these entries are plugins and give the option of disable enable and uninstall should I uninstall all of these items as i no longer have outpost installed the kernell driver has a exclamation mark Cheers Chippy

Try this, In Run Type regedit press enter, go to Menu under Edit click find type outpost firewall Delete if it's the right one, next press F3 for next entry. Do this until you get to the end
