Hi stu37

Please Download and install SpyBot,

click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

Go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

Hi stu37

before you ran spybot did you click the online tab to search for and download the updates - because I expected spybot to take care of this problem

Also you have a lot of programs starting at startup

see this link :-

And decide which programs you can untick

To untick them go to :-

type msconfig
startup tab

See less See more
i did but no updates showed. I was kind of wondering about that too.
Hi steamwiz, the link you provided came up as page not found
I've just done a search for updates and at this moment I am d'loading release 4 - released today 29-12-02

Have you not seen this when searching for updates ?


ps. maybe you d'loaded release 4 and allready have the latest updates ?
ok, i checked spybot and last time i used it today it was :
SpyBot-S&D1.1 rel4.
The link you referred to i already had if this is it:
Will check my startups, thanks
Have a look at this website - half way down the page is a picture of the "wild tangent control panel"

Make sure the box "automatic updater enabled" is Unticked

The references to the registry should have been deleted by spybot, so don't worry about them

thanks a lot steam, i checked and the update box was unchecked, it must have been some game i had downloaded that installed it, thanks again
When does this message popup

At startup ?
Random ?
Or when you play a particular game ?
Or when you do something else ?

Try this - go to C:\windows\downloaded program files

Look for this plugin and delete it :-

InProcServer32 = C:\WINDOWS\wt\webdriver\wthostctl.dll

Then go to C:\WINDOWS\ and delete the "wt" folder

Keep these in your recycle bin for a few days to make sure nothing else on your comp is affected

see if this gets rid of the pop up

Seven out of 27 processes are Norton related. As I have said before, Norton is one of the most BLOATED software packages out there! Do you REALLY need all that crap? There are better antivirus programs out there than Norton. VCom's System Suite (formerly Ontrack) has free updates and it doesn't load at startup (unless you want it).
ok thanks steam, all is resolved and Bruce, nortons seems to be doing a good job for me, and i have no loading up problems or slowdowns that i can tell, may check things out after year runs out.
Is yours really that much better? Let me know
Hi stu37


Just for the record I've had Norton anti-virus for the last 4 years and I'm very happy with it.

I never installed in in 2k that I have been running for well over a year, but when I tried it in ME it put so many lines in the auto exec.bat even when it was disabled, I removed it! I hate programs running in the background when I don't want them or are using them. System Suite runs either way and there are no DOS entries (for lack of a better term) and the updates are free. 80% of the time I read about software instalation problems the solution is to disable the antivirus software and it is Norton that ALWAYS comes up!

Can't argue with that - Had trouble installing a re-write - untill I disabled norton
