    AdAware detects this intruder every time I run AdAware. I understand it's a parasite. How can I get it off my machine o_O

    Hello Frangord !

    Welcome to Wilders ! :)

    MarketScore aka Netsetter indeed is parasite which claims to increase the speed of your internet connection. It runs at startup to ensure all your web connections are routed through NetSetter's proxies.

    In order to remove you need to run a hidden uninstall feature. Open a DOS command prompt window (from Start->Programs->Accessories) and enter

    For Windows 95/98/Me:

    "%WinDir%\SYSTEM\NSCheck.exe" /uninstall

    Note : Windir mean your windows directory like c:\windows.

    Or

    For Windows NT/2000/XP just:

    NSCheck /uninstall

    Hope, it helps !

    With Thanks !
    Newkid !

    Fran, Please proceed in this way..

    On the Start menu, use Find, or Search, and search for NSCheck.Exe on your local hard drives. Next, point to Start, click Run, and type :

    full path of the file/NSCheck/uninstall and Press Enter. For instances,

    C:/system/nscheck/uninstall and press enter


    Or

    Drag NSCheck.Exe from the Find or Search box into the Run box before /Uninstall and click OK.

    Or

    At an MS-DOS prompt go to root directory by typing Cd \ and press enter, and then type:

    cd < full path of file>/NSCheck/Uninstall and Press Enter.

    Hope it helps !

    With Thanks !
    Newkid !

    I have attempted all suggestions, but my Search (including searching everything that is an option in 'Search') finds nothing. I attempted to do a RUN NSCHECK.Exe and get a message that it can't be found. I did another AdAware run, and MarketScore still appears as RegKey. Each time I quarantine it, then rmove it, but it repeatedly comes back. Since my computer can't find it, I don't know what the full path is. Could this be a problem with/in AdAware? I seem to be going in circles.
