Ive read so much info on java lately I am completely lost as well as "in limbo" upon removeing it properlly from the machine.
Upon doing a visual look into my IE's
Temp Int Files>
Downloaded Program Files>
a week or 2 ago I noticed that the 3 Java active X objects had became corrupt and displayed a CREATION DATE of 2068 I believe it was.
Haveing a major problem with SpySubtract (that I did not download or use) by simply visiting a link that Windows Update and SP2 information leads to (all clickable links via SP2) I finally got strightened out. For the record ZA 4.5.594.0 version useing it's "default settings of IE & Win32" will not stop from loading this
1. Surrogate, dllhost.exe is a known malicious program, also known as "Nachi" or "Welchia"
2. MS DTC console program
3. WORDPAD MFC APPLICATION
nasty little thing on a persons machine.For the record.
Anyways back to the question, Should I? or should I not? remove java? and if so, the correct way to do so. All I did was delete the 3 active X objects in the folder mentioned.
Please keep in mind the vunderability of me useing DIAL UP and I have not upgraded to SP2 as of yet.
All my comp info is on profile as the 500 words or less allows.
Far as I know my machine is clean, but I am stuck on what to do about Java.
Thanks! (Yahoo Pool seem's to work ok far as I know)
