Does anyone know what Pzx is? When i hit alt, control, delete to see what programs are running, this is there. Now when ever i click on something a message pops up telling me that Pzx has preformed an illegal operation and will be shut down. Can anyone tell me what to do to get this to stop popping up? My OS is Windows 95 if that helps any. Thanks

Do a find, search or what ever Win 95 has (I am rusty on Win 95) and see if it will find a location for the program. This might tell you more. Chances are it is spyware or such. Can you highlight the Pzx and end task to eliminate it?

Sure to be spyware, no telling what else could be there.

Might pay to do a HiJackThis log to security forum?

95, who knows, you could give these a try, but............ You have a old monster and its time to move on!!

SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
AdAware SE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
definition updates
and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
SpyBot - After an update run immunize

Do these and reboot before the next step.

Then get HiJack This http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html, put
it in a permanent folder (C:\HJT) , run it , DO NOT fix anything, post the
log here.
