    I never heard of it myself but found this for you from: http://www.computing.net/windowsme/wwwboard/forum/16607.html

    Newdotnet or new.net is a piece of crap appliction from the frienly folks at new.net. Please feel free to complain to them about it.

    That being said... to remove this:

    1. Click on Start.
    2. Select Settings.
    3. Click on Control Panel.
    4. Double-click on the Add/Remove Programs icon.
    5. Select the New.net Application.
    6. Click on the Add/Remove button.
    7. Once the program has uninstalled, click on the OK button.

    After completing all of these steps, please reboot the computer. This will have removed the New.net application from your system.
    The above steps will fully remove the New.net plug-in. However, the Windows operating system will retain a record that the New.net plug-in previously had been installed on your computer in "C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files." This file is harmless, but can be removed by following the steps below:

    1. Click on Tools.
    2. Click on Internet Options.
    3. Under the General tab, click on the Settings button.
    4. Within the Settings window, click on the View Objects button.
    5. Within the Downloaded Program Files window, locate and delete Tldctl2c Class.
    6. Close the Downloaded Program Files window.
    7. Click on the OK button within the Settings window.
    8. Click on the OK button within the Internet Options window.
    9. Close Internet Explorer.

    newdot net is spyware.....get rid of it a.s.a.p
    go to www.lavasoftusa.com
    dowload "adaware" let it do a full deep scan,if youve never run adaware before,you will be surprised at what it finds.
    good luck.

    Running Ad-Aware certainly is a good idea.
    Also download the latest Signature file (Reflist.sig) : http://www.lsfileserv.com/aaw/binary/reflist.zip
    Unpack it to the Lavasoft Ad-Aware folder in Program Files, and have it overwrite the one that's there.

    However, as of the latest few versions it doesn't touch New.Net, as it's officially 'not considered spyware' any more.

    NewNet certainly needs to be removed, however.

    The best thing to do, is to go to Start/Run, and type Msconfig, then uncheck NewNet application on the startup tab.

    Now go to Software add/remove, and remove New.Net application there.

    Don't attempt to remove the dll manually, because that may cause the loss of your internet connectivity.

    If uninstalling doesn't get rid of the dll (it happens), try this:

    First, you will need to locate the New.net ".dll" file that is on the computer. Do this by doing a search for "newdot*.*".

    The file will be located in your "Windows" folder. Once found, make note of
    the actual filename which should look something like this:

    Example: newdotnet2_90.dll

    Close the Find or Search window then...

    Click Start
    Click Run

    Copy and paste in the following line (adapting the name of the file, if required)

    "rundll32 c:\windows\newdotnet2_90.dll,NewDotNetUninstall"

    Click OK

    You should then see a small window asking if you want to uninstall the New.net application. Click Yes. Once this is done, restart your computer. This should keep the .dll from loading up at startup of your computer.

    Good luck,
