    Appreciate some assistance.

    Helping someone with an WMe computer containing New.Net foist ware.

    Used CP>Add/Remove Programs to remove the New.Net entry, and followed up checking IE>Internet Options>General tab>Settings button. In the Settings window, clicked on View Objects button but did not locate Tldctl2c Class.

    At some point, had unchecked the New.Net entry in MSConfig, and also ran Spybot S&D, AdWare, and HijackThis!

    After all this, and thinking that New.Net was totally gone, went back to MSConfig, and guess what?? The New.Net entry is still there (unchecked).

    Q#1 How can this entry be removed from MSConfig?

    Q#2 If the New.Net entry is removed from MSConfig, how can one make sure this blankity-blank foist ware is not going to mess up internet connectivity by damaging Winsock settings?

    Sure appreciate the help.

    Thanks for the reply, but doubt the folks involved would want to purchase the software.

    In IE options - click on the Settings button. In the Settings dialog box, click View Objects. In the Downloaded Program Files box - does a tldctl2c Class item appears in the list?
    If so, right-click it, and then click Remove.
    Restart.

    Thanks for the reply, however, as stated on the original post, "did not locate Tldctl2c Class". Bummer.
