    Please state the exact error message without paraphrasing for the forum to more effectively help you.

    Update your antivirus, temporarily disable your screen saver (choose None) and scan with your anti-virus set to scan All Files. Update and scan bi-monthly.

    You can scan on-line to double-check your Windows scanner at http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

    *** Mandatory (get a firewall of any brand) - Get free Zone Alarm personal firewall anti-hacker countermeasure from http://www.zonelabs.com. (not the ZA Pro demo) 'Don't let anything out to the Internet you don't know what it is.' Also please see http://www.firewallguide.com/ for more information on why all on-line home computers should be firewall enabled.

    Get the firewall if you have none, then do on-line scan.

    The exact error comes up when I log onto my windows XP. The error says exactly this: Library watchdll.dll not found
    System watching is disabled

    I ran my norton anti virus and it didn't catch anything.Thank you for your help.
