    hey guys im fixing a friends computer

    have you ever heard of a program called moslo? i went into the readme bit and it says this: "Mo'Slo lets you to slow the speed of your computer to 1-99% of normal in 1% increments." i dont understand it.

    also, they had gator on their computer. i deleted it using add/remove programs. it didnt fully go away so i did something stupid: i deleted the rest of the folder through windows explorer. i rebooted the computer and at the start the desktop showed that they were searching for "offers" that i deleted from the gator folder. yeah yeah i know i should've downloaded spybot or something. :p so what can i do about this?

    also there is another file on there, im not sure what it is. anyone heard of Isfyzqvo.twj, and inside it is a file called Swapfile.hdr anyone know what it is? i dont know what the .*.* is.

    i'll download the spyware remover in a second. they dont use a download program like kazaa or getright or anything. they have norton av, and it says it doesnt detect anything. i have attached their startup list for your uh, viewing pleasure. ;)

    but the major problem isnt internet security related its to do with microsoft picture it publishing and ulead photoshop. microsoft picture it publishing is saying that theres a kernel 32 error (i think). what does that mean?

    GMT is still showing in the startup list - that's gator stuff - as is the trickler "CMESys.exe" gator related.
    The Isfyzqvo.twj is a temp dir or file left over from a gravis ultrasound install I'm guessing (but could be from anything that uses that particular installer)- delete it.
