"NoAdware" is a "no no" and may be causing all your problem's. Read this and scroll down the page.
every time I launch IE, Zone Alarm alerts me that a .exe on my machine is trying to connect to the internet. The name of the .exe seems to be randomly generated every time I start IE, or at some pre-determined interval while I'm online. I have Spyware Blaster, Hijackthis, and Noadware, but the problem still persisits. I never allow this .exe to connect, but I would love to get rid of it. Any suggetions? Thanks
