    In the past I had BellSouth as my phone/internet provider. I have switched away from them and did uninstall on all their programs. But this I can't get rid of. BellSouthAlertManager.exe
    This shows up in the Windows task manager and is listed in the start/programs list. When I click on uninstall I get that horrible sound and C:\Program Files\BellSouth\AM\unins000.dat does not exist cannot uninstall.
    OK so how do I get whatever is there off my computer? :confused:

    what, is it showing up in task manager processes?
    create a system restore point just in case.

    in task mngr.
    highlight it and end process.
    go to c/program files and delete the bell south folder.
    restart computer

    yeah that looks like a support thingy for bell south.

    if you click ...start>run...type in msconfig
    in the startup tab... see if you have "sprtcmd" and/or "bell south" listed , if so

    uncheck it, Click OK > Restart... After restarting, a System Configuration Utility window with message will appear.
    Check box so this message will not appear again when next restarting.

    after restart you can try to delete that bell south file again.
    if for some reason you can't delete it don't worry...at this point i don't think it's doing any harm.

    i'll do some more checking around on it.
