    NewNet is foistware that was installed on your computer without your knowing, probably while installing a program like Kazaa.

    Please do this:

    Go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php#startup , and download 'Startuplist'.

    Unzip, doubleclick it, and it will generate a text file that will list all running processes, all applications that are loaded automatically when you start Windows, and more.

    Go to Edit > select all, copy it and please post the contents here.

    And one thing you can do right now:

    Go to Control Panel > Add Remove programs, and find and uninstall New.Net (domains).

    Reboot when you're done. That ought to take care of your error message.

    WEll, you have some spyware there.

    Do this:

    First uninstall NewNet the way I described before.

    Then do this:

    Download Spybot - Search & Destroy

    It looks for spyware, but also targets dialers, keyloggers, and other nasties, and it's freeware.

    After installing, go to the Online tab, and search for and install all updates.

    Next, go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
    These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

    Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, hit 'Check All', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

    Good luck,

    Well, one important way of making sure you get no more spyware is watching what you download.

    P2P programs like Kazaa, Imesh, Bearshare and others contain lots of spyware.

    Here's a useful article:


    Also go to IE > Tools > Windows Update > Product Updates, and install ALL Critical Updates listed.

    As for updating your Sound and video drivers, go to the maufacturers sites and have a look there whether there are updated versions available.
    They will have tips on how to install them as well.
