    well as always....My advice is go to housecalls & run the free online virus scanner.
    Click here to do so!




    then there is spyware ... go get Ad-Aware
    Click here to download it

    Hi Cyberianhusky,

    Kernel32.dll missing is not very likely.
    What is the exact text of the error message you are getting?

    Greetz,

    Did you mean kernel32.dll?

    Considering your user name, maybe not! :D

    Do you have any installed programs dealing with canine subjects?

    No way kernel32 can be missing, you couldn't boot up without it!

    I just had to reboot my system again. I went to see why I have no sound and my system froze. Then I had a Win 95 RPC Wmsg Window - not responding.

    I seem to be having the same problem as Ginnis12. So I used Adware and deep a deep scan as well as scanning all my hard drives. I did get "Adware cannot delete HBINST file being used by another program". I also have no sound. I also have attached startup files for you.

    Oh man! There's a lot there! This is bound to slow you down.

    First, go into the options of Clean Sweep and/or System Works, and uncheck 'start up Clean Sweep/Safe Sweep etc. when Windows starts'.
    I further don't think you should let Norton System Doctor start up automatically. It's a pain. Disable that as well.

    Then do this:

    Go to Start/run, and type msconfig.
    On the Startup tab, uncheck EVERYTHING, EXCEPT for the following items

    Internet Answering Machine Startup Group "C:\Program Files\CallWave\IAMSETUP.EXE" -start
    SystemTray Registry (Machine Run) SysTray.Exe
    LVComs Registry (Machine Run) C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\LVComS.exe
    NAV DefAlert Registry (Machine Run) C:\PROGRA~1\NORTON~1\NORTON~2\DEFALERT.EXE
    Norton eMail Protect Registry (Machine Run) C:\PROGRAM FILES\NORTON SYSTEMWORKS\NORTON ANTIVIRUS\POProxy.exe
    mdac_runonce Registry (Machine Run) C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\runonce.exe
    ScanRegistry Registry (Machine Run) C:\WINDOWS\scanregw.exe /autorun
    LoadPowerProfile Registry (Machine Run) Rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,LoadCurrentPwrScheme
    Norton Auto-Protect Registry (Machine Run) C:\PROGRA~1\NORTON~1\NORTON~2\NAVAPW32.EXE /LOADQUIET
    SymTray - Norton SystemWorks Registry (Machine Service) C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\SymTray.exe "Norton SystemWorks"
    LoadPowerProfile Registry (Machine Service) Rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,LoadCurrentPwrScheme
    SchedulingAgent Registry (Machine Service) C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\mstask.exe

    Click OK, close Msconfig, and reboot (important!)


    Download and install <A HREF="http://www.lavasoftusa.com/index.html">Ad-Aware</A> . This is a program which scans your system for spyware.

    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 your drives and registry scanned for spyware, check all found files and reg keys, click continue, and have them removed.
    Reboot one last time.

    Your computer will thank you for this, and you'll be amazed about how much more smoothly your system will run.


    Good luck,

    It's the MSN Messenger Query (or Quality, noone seems to know for sure...) Manager.

    Opinions differ on what it does, but you don't need it.
    It has its own little hidden folder in Program Files, incidentally...

    Grtz.

    I found this on it at James Langa's site:

    The file Loadqm.exe is a "quality monitor" that's part of MSN. It collects and transmits anonymous statistics back to Microsoft. You can read more about it--- and turn it off, to prevent anything from being sent back--- by opening MSN Explorer, clicking on "Help and Settings" at the top of the pager, then click on "Privacy" in the left nav bar, then click on "Service Quality Monitoring."

    QMgr apparently is a "queue manager" identified as a "Background File Downloader" that "Downloads data for programs when the computer is idle."

    There is no separate on/off switch for QMgr that I know of, but it can be blocked by ZoneAlarm (and by other firewalls that allow per-application settings). I've noticed no problems from blocking QMgr; if I ever do encounter a download problem, I can adjust ZoneAlarm on the fly to allow QMgr to connect temporarily, and then can re-disable it.

    By manually disabling the Quality Manager and using ZoneAlarm to block the QMgr, you can regain control over some of the less obvious background activities that may be going on in your PC.

    So it is Bill's own spyware, probably... :D

    Hey Tony, I've done what you suggested. But when I went to add/remove programs New.net and webhancer weren't there. I downloaded th zip file you suggest and did a scan. I will keep you posted.

    My computer also has been freezing (when I the bottom task bar) alot and I have no sound. What the heck is going on?

    Is there any firewall that will stop the spywares from infesting my system?
