    The problem is Norton, shut it down before running AdwCleaner..
    Go to -> Here for your reference on how to disable Norton..

    @ddp, That's not the kind of updates he is talking about.. Programs not Drivers. And you can get all your driver updates delivered to you by setting your windows to update them automatically.

    Secunia PSI is extremely good for updating everything except drivers.

    windows updates are not always correct as i've got the wrong ones a few times from them, mostly video & sound.

    It was a media player called potplayer. I've been trying to see if I could find a good player I tried several and it had good reviews.

    Best media player are VLC and my personal favourite for stability and audio excellence is KM Player!!!

    Never download from the outlet website always go directly to the coders website and download from there - checkit with av and antispyware - check the signature of the file using properties and only then install!
