Hey guys... I've taken to leaving my computer on and connected most times for p2p, etc... anyway, my sister installed the full version of Kazaa on my PC recently, but I have since uninstalled, and used Ad-Aware to remove all spyware components, etc...

Now, I've found that every now and then, after leaving my PC on for AGES, popup shows up?? This popup shows the website "firstlook.com" ... I have no idea what it is, and using the latest reference file for Ad-Aware, can't seem to find anything to cause it to open... Any ideas??

Thanks,

Lo.

Something's running in the background. Open up msconfig (Start > Run > type msconfig, hit Enter), and turn off anything in the startup tab which looks suss.

Go here (http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_pages/startup_full.htm) for a good list of start up programs and what they are/do.

Thanks dude... it was the "newdotstart.dll" prog running in the background... apparently not "spyware" but anyway...

Thanks again!
