    Hi, Bill:

    Since AntsPants solved your problem, you might want to go to the little "thumbs up" icon at the lower left of his post and click on it.

    Also, you may want to go to the beginning of your thread and click on the green icon that says something like "solved". That way it shows there's a solution to the problem. What this does is tell those willing to help that your problem is solved and those who want to know how to solve the problem will gain knowledge.

    Thanks.

    [QUOTE=TechnoMage;362637]That program is usually downloaded by a user, in response to an ad on TV. It does not slither in by itself.

    I've cautioned all my customers to NOT fall for that stuff, advertised on TV. (there are several permutations of the same program)
    As a result, I've never seen it on any of my customer's PC's.

    Good Luck!

    I didn't knowingly download it, and it's a new computer. My guess is that it slipped through while I was downloading something else. These sites are tricky like that. But I've never had one slip in, and not show up in programs, start, or somewhere obvious like this one did.

    I thought I already did that.

    Strange, Bill. I didn't see it when I posted, but I saw "solved" a second ago, so I looked again and don't see it now.

    I'll look a little more carefully and let you know what I did wrong so no one else will do it.

    OK, I know what happened now . . . When I'm notified via email that there's a post to a thread I'm following and I click on the link, I don't see "solved" in the email, nor in the post I'm taken to. So, I mistakenly thought you hadn't marked it solved. Sigh . . . I still have a lot to learn about these forums.
