    Hi,

    If you are running windows ME, 2000 or XP please download ths file:
    http://www.wilderssecurity.com/attachments/processnames.txt

    Then doubleclick it. It will display a prompt with all the running processes on your computer. Click OK and it will make a .txt file out of that.
    Post the content of the .txt file and I will tell you which one needs to be stopped, so you can use HijackThis and CWshredder.

    If you have script protection, you may get an alarm about running the vbs
    Ignore that, this one is harmless.

    Regards,

    Pieter
