Welcome to TSG!
There are several items you will have to do. Go to http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/ and download Spybot and Startuplist. After download locate the Spybot exe program and start it by double click. When Spybot main screen appears click the online tab and select search for updates. After updates appear make sure check marks are made for all updates and click the install updates tab. After updates are installed click the Settings tab and then the file sets tab. Make sure System internals and the Tracks items are unchecked. After they are unchecked the click the Spybot S&D tab and then select to run it. After spybot runs all items in red are eligible for anf should be removed so let Spybot do that.

After spybot removes all the junk from your system the unzip the startuplist program and run that one. Post the results of then list back here for review.

If you double click the Spybot exe ssd14.exe program it will start the installer. I directed it to install into a separate folder within a a folder I call utilities but you can have it install to its normal place which would be C:\Program files. After install locate the Spybot Icon and there is where you will start the process.

Startuplist after unzip also will have have a startuplist.exe program. This one however does not install since it is freestanding. Double clicking it will create the report.

Hi rickmarlow20

Go to Tools\internet options and "delete files"

Then do as Dave said - this is explained alittle different :-

Please Download and install SpyBot,

http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/spybot14.exe

click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

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, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

you may have to run spybot more than once to clear everything

-------------------------
Then post your startup again like this :-

Please post your startup list by doing the following :-

Please go here and download startuplist 1.51 :-

http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/startuplist151.zip

Download to any folder or your desktop
Unzip the zipfile
Double click the exe file
go to Edit - select all - copy - and paste the results in a new post here

Hi rickmarlow20

Did you "delete files"

Did you run Spybot and "fix all problems"

Seems you have quite a bit of racey stuff in there. As Steam asked did you run spybot already and have it uninstall all in red found? If so the we have much other work to do.

Sorry about the delay but it is my turn to cook supper for the Family.

Anyway lets remove this item here in your startups and then I would like you to do an online virus scan.

Go to start\run and type in MSconfig then enter. Click startup tab up top and scroll to locate the line with this in it: "C:\WINDOWS\TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES\CONTENT.IE5\OP2Z41U7\CONNECT-RAPER[1].EXE and then remove check in front of it.

Make sure there are not two! Then click apply then OK.
Do not restart system yet!!!!!!!

Now go to http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp and run a free online scan. Let it remove anything found but let us know what it was if anything.

Come back and report after scan.

Not sure what happened to you but the last steps are to restart system to deactivate the program running from Temp Inet files and then go to Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\Temp Internet files\Content IE5 folder and locate the OP2Z41U7 folder and delete it.
