Hi williamtell,you can run an online scan here if you can stay online long enough.

http://www.housecalls.antivirus.com

Before you run the scan if you can that is,post your startup programs back here.Go to Start>Run>type in Msinfo32,click ok,click on software environment>startup programs>click edit,select all >Click edit>copy and paste the page back here.

oops,wrong page williamtell.When the window opens for system information,click on the + sign next to software environment,then click on startup programs,then click on the edit tab at the top of the page,click on select all,click on edit again,click on copy,then come back here and right click and choose paste.That should paste your programs you have running at startup here.Let me know if you have any problems.

Ok i see you got it.You have some nasty spyware on your computer,plus you have way to many programs starting up.Lets take care of the spyware first.Go to start>run>type in msconfig,click ok.Click on startup tab on the top of the page,Take the check mark out of

Ezula Main
Newnet

Then click apply then ok.The computer will want to reboot,let it.

Next go to Start>settings>control panel>highlight new net,click the remove botton.Reboot.Do the same thing for ezula main

Now i want you to go to this site and download a program called Ad=aware5.6.This is a free program that will scan your system for spyware.After you download that also download the ref-file at that site.Now run the scan and see if there is anymore spyware on your system.Dont be surprize if it finds alot.

Ad-Aware5.6

Lets know if you need any help with any of this.Am sure this is what is causeing your problem.Newnet is just like a trojan

Newsupd.exe is also spyware: http://www.cexx.org/newsupd.htm

And there's more unneccessary stuff.

Do this:

Go to Start/run, and type msconfig.
On the Startup tab, uncheck EVERYTHING, EXCEPT for the following items

StateMgr
Adaptec DirectCD
AudioHQ
DMIStart
Intel File Transfer
Intel PDS
LoadPowerProfile
Norton Auto-Protect
PCHealth
ScanRegistry c
SchedulingAgent
StillImageMonitor
SystemTray s
TMA Distribution
User Space Manager
WinPoET

Click OK, close Msconfig, and reboot (important!)

Now go to Software add/remove and remove New(dot)net application.

Reboot AGAIN.

Download and install <A HREF="http://www.lavasoftusa.net/index.html">Ad-Aware</A> . This is a program which scans your system for spyware.

After having downloaded AAW, also download the latest Signature file (Reflist.sig) : http://www.lavasoftusa.net/aaw/binary/reflist.zip
Unpack it to the Lavasoft Ad-Aware folder in Program Files, and have it overwrite the one that's there.

Then have your drives and registry scanned for spyware, check all found files and reg keys, click continue, and have them removed.
Reboot one last time.

Your computer will thank you for this, and you'll be amazed about how much more smoothly your system will run.


Good luck,

You're welcome, WilliamTell,

All these things that start up behind your back are bound to slow you down, so it's always good to remove everything there but the esssentials.

And it certainly is no big surprise that it solved your problem as well.

Incidentally, this is the site that beach51 was talking about: <A HREF="http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_pages/startup_full.htm">Startups - full list</A>

If you're ever in doubt what any of this stuff in Msconfig/startup is, you'll often find it there.

Good luck,
