    Is is safe to remove files from:
    "Document and Settings/HP Administrator/Local Settings/Temp"

    Also I get an error relationg to tha SPA.exe file when updating Norton. Norton people don' have a clue about my issue (surprise) so I found three spa.exe files in the above temp file.

    Also, I posted this problem before and some thought it was a malware but I ran three spybot type progmams plus my Norton IS and no problems were found. Problem is a large black dos command type box is popping up all the time, about avery 30 to 1 min or so.

    Also, when I try to go to some web sites I get a low memory error but usually goes a way in a minute or so. Never had that before and I check memory and can't find the problem.

    Wish I knew more.

    This is sort of a duplicate of this one

    Leave the temp files alone until your HJT log has been reviewed. SPA.exe "may" give some clues.
    The low memory error is almost always a sign of malware infection.

    I recommend you mark this thread as solved (thread tools top) and carry on any other questions in the other thread.
