When my old 486 dx2/66 starts up, it displays a "Performed an Illegal operation...." To get around it, I just close the screen and everything starts ok. It is getting to be a pain in the a__. I have no idea what Tsadbot is, what it does, or what. Is one of my programs that start up causing it? I found the program in one of the Windows directories, but hesitate to delete it because I don't know it's importance.

Can someone tell me: What is Tsadbot? Is it essential? can I dump it alltogether? How can I get around this problem?

Thanks.

Hi,

Tsadbot is spyware, part of TimeSink: http://www.cexx.org/tsadbot.htm

Do this: Download <A HREF="http://www.lavasoftusa.com/index.html">Ad-Aware</A> , have it scan your drives and registry, check all found spyware references, click 'Continue' and have Ad-Aware remove them.

Good luck,
