    Hi,

    It's an advertising trojan: http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=58856&highlight=FTAPP.DLL

    It can be removed with <A HREF="http://www.lavasoftusa.com/index.html">Ad-Aware</A>

    After having downloaded AAW, also download the latest Signature file (Reflist.sig) : http://www.lavasoftusa.com/ls/reflist.zip

    Unpack it to the Lavasoft Ad-Aware folder in Program Files, and have it overwrite the one that's there.

    Then have Ad-Aware scan your drives and registry for spyware, check all found files and reg keys, click continue, and have them removed.

    Good luck,

    After following your instructions I found out I had 49 different spyware programs running. My God, what do they know about me?

    Thank you, Tony, for your quick reply and help. IE seems to be working fine, now
