Adware

Hi.
I currently run xp with sp2.
When i ask nortons to scan my discs for viruses it shows 4 results that cannot be deleated.
NDNUNINSTALL 6 38 EXE
newdotnet 6 38.dl
uninstall 38.exe
upgrade .exe.
Any ideas how these can be removed.
Im fairly new to this so if you can make it idiot proof.

Many thanks
Peter

Sometimes I can't get housecall to run on some PCs.
The java version might run if that is the case.

Thanks.

Winsockfix

A while back Bob Proffitt showed me a sockets fix program.

Everyone should have something ready to fix a sockets problem if it occurs.

You are right that spyware can overtake the sockets and removal can stop your network connections.
Winsockfix will set the sockets back to the way they should be.

I use it quite a bit on PCs.
