    I'm a newbie, barely computer literate. My first computer is a Toshiba Satellite A135 S4727, Windows Vista, Intel Pentum Core Duo acquired August of this year. What is {8FFBE65D-2C9C-4669-84BD-5829DCOB603C}? I find this item in the Windows Downloaded Programs file... Status: Unknown, Total Size: 4KB, Creation Date: None, Last Accessed: None. In the same file, Java Runtime Environment occurs three tmes... Status: Installed. Total Size: None, Date Created: 5/22/2007 , Last Accessed: 5/22/2007. I find these items suspicious and when I try to delete them funny things happen so I have to cancel deletion. I need your advice desperately, Thanks for your attention.

    Not sure what 8FFBE65D-2C9C-4669-84BD-5829DCOB603C is.

    Go to add/remove programs and remove the old java.

    Thank you Cybertech. The Java Runtime environment and the 8FFBE65d... are Active X in the Windows Downloaded Programs file. They could not be deleted even with supervisor account. They do not exist in the list of programs that could be uninstalled. They probably were originally installed by Toshiba. I read somewhere in your fora that 8FFBE65D... is part of macromedia. I don't know what macromedia is and do not remember downloading it. Thanks.

    There are a few products by macromedia. Flash Player is one that comes to mind.
