Hi

Please run the following progams
to see if there is any spyware on your system:

Ad-Aware - www.lavasoftusa.com
Spybot - http://www.safer-networking.or­g/
CWShredder - http://forum.aumha.org/downloa­ds/cwshredder.zip
Spy Sweeper - www.webroot.com

Try SpyWareBlaster to stop intrusions:

http://www.javacoolsoftware.co­m/spywareblaster.html

Also see the following links:

http://aumha.org/a/parasite.ht­m
http://mvps.org/winhelp2002/un­wanted.htm

Also have a look in msconfig>startup to see if the file is referenced there.
If so, uncheck it, then reboot your system.

Hi

It wouldn't have been installed by SP1. Now you'll have to go to Windows
Updates to get back all the Critical/Security Updates so that your system is
up to date. You'll probably be offered SP2.
