    Thanks alot for responding, for the past few days I've been incredibley nervous about vicious things on my computer and I've gone through alot of stuff to make sure its clean. But I'm still just wondering what this is exactly "C:\PROGRA~1\WINDOW~2\wmplayer.exe". Is that actually windows media player?
