Not that I am extremely worried about spyware, but what would you recommend I use in it's place?  Sorry to put you on the spot, just wondering.

Re: Help save my laptop

I appreciate the help, really I do.  I also don't want to have to reinstall my machine, too many apps to find again.

Thanks a million fellas.

Mandriva 2007.1 Spring Powerpack rocks!

I have reinstalled my Linux partitions with many different flavors of Linux in the past.  I was becoming real fond of Kubuntu Feisty Fawn when I discovered all that Mandriva 2007.1 offered.  It detected all of my drivers, allows me to run the Xgl stuff, Metisse runs flawlessly on my trouble laptop a...

Dave,     I ended up having to run sfc /scanonce to run at boot, and nothing was found.  The error still remains...  :nunu: What to do now?  I will try HJT and Rk-Revealer and see what that comes up with.  It's really getting annoying now.  Thinking about just doing a re-install, I've already built ...
