    I've come across something called "Interstitial Ad Delivery by n-CASE" in my ad/remove function. What is it? How did it get there? Do I need it? If no...how do I get rid of it?

    Thanks for any help!

    Download Hijackthis.
    Save it to a folder on your hard drive.
    Unzip the file.
    Scan your machine, then click on Save Log.

    Post a copy back here and someone will be happy to review it.

    Don't make any changes until instructed to do so.

    Its Spyware and its harmful to the proper operation to your computer. Remove it.

    You should also surf over to www.downloads.com and download Adaware and Spybot - do a search for each one. Once you have the program's downloaded and installed, make sure you Update each one before doing a scan. Fix all problems they find.

    You probably downloaded a "free" program that was supported by advertising. That program may stop working, however there is no good program that is supported by adware so its no big loss if it stops working. Kazaa is the biggest culprit and should be uninstalled immediately.

    I can't open the Hijackthis page...can I find it somewhere else? Also, I already have Ad-aware 6.0 and Spybot which I run regularly.

    Here's a link to their own uninstaller - if you want to trust them to uninstall what they put on your your computer in the first place...

    http://www.n-case.com/ncaseuninstall.html?

    I wouldn't really recommend it.

    You can manually remove it by following the instrucs near the bottom of this page:

    http://www.spy-bot.net/nCase.asp

    That is if you are unable to download HijackThis! and are comfortable with registry editing.
