    I have an Unknown program in my Windows Core Components in the Registry Run Program: The unknown is {EDB0E980-90BD-11D4-8599-0008C7D3B6F8}

    I'm running a Win 98se. The unknown program comes up in red. Any suggestions on what to do and where to go?

    Hi Candy!

    Just a little one here and there! I know, I know! It must sound like I'm a sucker for worms and trojans and things of that nature, but until the 95 picked up that virus that I still have not totally gotten rid of (but I'm working on), I thought my Linksys Router with a firewall was protecting me. I stated checking the 98 because I thought maybe the 95 infected it when the Direct Connection Cable worked. But, no, a new one turned up. :D :D

    But I am seriously thinking about reformating the Beast. The RegRun program keeps coming up with the message that a part of the virus is still on the system, even tho I deleted the main body. Keeps me from getting into trouble. LOL. :D :D

    Yes it is! You have told me. I won't say I should have listened, because I did learn a few things; but in the end you were right. LOL

    And thanks for all your help. :D :D I appreciate it very much. :D :D :D
