ok, i deleted all that stuff, im now doing scans.

already used CCleaner, and doing ewido (it rules, finding much more then other scanners) then im gonna do CleanUp! and maybe one more spybot (will be the third run of that) then ill restart, already did the MSconfig stuff, then i restart and run it all again, then defrag the hard-drive, maybe do a free-space-wipe to get rid of any resonant problems, and then i should be good, right?

i cant find how to start Windows Defender, where is it?

also, im running CleanUp! and WOW, i did a demo mode (scan mode i guess) and it came up with over 22K hits! freeing over 800MB of space! wowowowow, i was amazed. but now its going to take a few days to finish, but its worth it!

im also running ewido (at the same time) and it is 43.3% of the way done, with 497 hits already! ad-aware only came up with 2!!!

thanks a ton Warez Monster and Bradybnmci, this is really going to help

i also have the Ewido gaurd thing, that will help a lot too

Ive never ran it yet so just look around for it....When Ewido is done, and after the rest of the scans complete, reboot and run Ewido again is it might find more items.
