    I have a question. I tried to delete a file called "ncmyb.dll"

    (C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp\ncmyb.dll)

    but can't seem to find it...I followed the path in safe mode and in regular mode, but can't locate it to delete it. When my Norton antivirus 2004 locates it, it doesn't delete it when I choose that option, but it says that it can "skip or exclude" it in the future. Of course I didn't choose either of those two options, but I can't find it...

    any ideas??

    I tried that, but it didn't help any. I also deleted the registry key, and that didn't help...Norton still finds something.

    I just finished both of those scans, but it's still there. It just won't delete, lol. Oh well, it's not hurting anything as far as I can tell but I know it shouldn't be there and that annoys me! It's like having a sliver -- it won't kill you, but it sure will bug you knowing it's there!

    Thanks for the help, if anybody else has any ideas, I'm open to suggestions. :)
