    Not really sure whats wrong with my computer, but its been acting up all day today. I installed Norton Antivirus 2003 today and it didn't find anything. However these executable files keep popping up:

    winnet.exe
    stub.exe
    fsg_3202.exe
    msbb.exe

    Are these files important or do they need to be erased? What is their function? I'm just trying to get my computer to start behaving properly again. Thanks!

    Hi MustangFan, Welcome to TSG !!
    Those are spyware. Go here and download spybot. Install it and run the update. Let it search and see what comes up. The items in red are ok to remove. If you feel better just tell us briefly what items do come up.

    Last dumb question, I promise...I forgot how to get into the directories using DOS. For example the file stub.exe is located in the directory EBKRDR which is found in the program files. How do I get into the EBKRDR directory?


    EBKRDR <DIR> 02-01-03 9:26a ebkrdr


    C:\Program Files>
