    Hello all! :D I am a newbie and this is my first post. This is an incredible website. I have been reading through many of the message boards and am gaining quite an education. Thanks to all who contribute by sharing your knowledge and experience. :-*
    I am wondering if anyone has dealt with Memory Meter. o_O Is it harmless? It has somehow found it's way into my system. :mad: It appears on my lower right taskbar as a little meter which gauges the real time memory currently available in my system(?) This means it is constantly running. I want this out of my system but there is no uninstall and do no know of a way to get rid of it. Right mouse clicking shows 3 options. The first is .. Upgrade to Memory Blaster; the second is About and the third is Close. Their website is http://www. memorymeter.com/ and gives no information on removal. They have a site noted for support but will not give you any until you have filled out their form...(me thinks somethings amiss and smells like old fish!)I have Spybot S&D and Spyware Blaster. I am a little uneasy about using the advanced mode in this removal. I have found it in under Tools<ActiveX in the advanced mode of Spybot S&D. I am unsure about how to dispose of this garbage. I would appreciate any feedback! Thanks ;)

    Hi MsDSizz,

    Welcome at Wilders. :)

    MemoryMeter is part of TotalVelocity spyware.
    If you like I could help you remove it.
    Could you post your HijackThis log
    Download, Unzip and run HijackThis, Then click Scan > Save log, save the log as a .txt file and copy & paste its content into your next post.
    Don´t fix anything yet. Most of what it finds is harmless.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    If the usual spyware programs do not do the job maybe DRDelete is worth trying;

    http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,7374516~root=winme~mode=flat

    A quick search over at google suggested that Memory Meter is a nuisance to many!!!!!

    For Example, Check out this one;

    Reboot after doing so, preferably into safe mode and delete:
    C:\PROGRAM FILES\MEMORYMETER <= entire folder
    C:\WINDOWS\TVTMD.EXE

    Hi MsDSizz.

    If you're looking for a free program to monitor and display memory take a look at WinBar.
    It doesn't have spyware.
    It's customisable and seems to be accurate.
    Some of the options are; a clock,CPU usage,running up-time,RAM available(free)or RAM used.
    The clock can display time,day,and date.
    It also has an uninstaller.

    Hi Root,MsDSizz.

    No Problem.
    I've benefitted from a lot of tips on software myself,especially in this forum. :)

    Hope you like the program.
