    Hi,

    Could you provide a bit more information?
    What was the name of the program that you downloaded?
    Do you know the address of the site that you got it from?
    What are the specific error messages that are coming up?
    Have you ran a virus-scan on your system?

    Please post back with more info.

    Ok I got it from that kazaa crap, it came as this long *** file name.
    I typed in palystation and it gave me this file that claimed that it could burn px2 games the file name was like" learn to burn playstation2 to games............. then on and on? I am at work so I cant get the exact name now. Ive tryied to delete it but it cant because its a .ocx. Now ive ran a virus scan that is called PC-chillin

    Hiya

    First off, Kazaa is Spyware. You may want to get rid of this and go to,say Morpheus. Uninstall it, then run the following program. AddAware www.lavasoftusa.com
    Install and run it, allowing for the DOS window to close. You can remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net.

    Also, this may solve this issue that you're getting. If not, ket us know. Its just that as you say you click it, it tries to go online. This is typical of spyware.

    When you get home, find out the full name of the file as well.

    Regards

    eddie

    Hi Kevil,Eddie is right,Kazaa is loaded with spyware and some of the real nasty ones,that act almost like a virus or trojen.If you look in your startup programs in Msconfig,you will find NewDotNet,Ezlue Main,webhancer,toptext,and cydoor.Ad-aware 5.6 will remove some of this stuff,but not all.Newdotnet,and Ezlue main,are one of the worst and more difficult to remove.You should contact newdotnet for the removal instructions,there no# is 626-229-7800.I see you also posted this in the security forum,I think you should follow Rollin-Rogs advice first before you do any of the things Eddie and I suggest.If it the chi virus,take care of that first before downloading Ad-aware.
