    try running those programs in safe mode but delete all cookies, temp & temporary internet files. also check your msconfig/startup to see what is not to be there

    If you also could download this program, filemon.exe which will tell you what is running in the background on your PC, even if your task manager shows nothing. This to could help you at least pinpoint the exact location of what is causing you grief.

    thanks to you all I took your advice and also used mine another day unplug your cable/dsl first then this is what I did I used all the antivirus programs at the sametime I let them run continually when one got finished I started the other again. Eliminate everything that comes up that says at risk do this manually then I went to the search bar and typed in the viruses name that came up and it found what folder it was attached to then I went to my C:drive and started eliminating but first you have to delete all music dl sites. keep doing this running the virus scans about 2 or 3 times it works the best one was Ad-aware 6.0 and nortons. In your C: in programs you will see these folders mine was a banner ad folder with wuptg.exe, prouskie, Bargains Search engine folder they were all stored there the folder will keep showing up and shows an error message saying that you can't delete because some other file is using it just run adaware again until you can delete the folder it works it took me 3 hours to eliminate all the files. then shut down your system when you feel that you got the germs plug your modem back in and try to connect if no success only unplug modem for 5 seconds then plug back go to control in internet options connect follw screen to reconnect your system so that the box can pick up your IP Address if don't work keep doing it I had to 2 times. Good Luck then dl zone alarm thank you all it was a long week but I succeeded.
