It's doing much better, but I have noticed that Ewido eats up my CPU completely, it leaves me on 2 or 3 megs of RAM for more than 10 minutes, till I get tired of it and reboot. I don't know, but I think it might need some more fine tuning. Is there something like a general routine I should do every now and then? I ask because, evidently, everything I did before didn't seem to be good enough. Besides, I installed McAfee Managed Viruscan, have you heard of it? Do you know if it's good or not? I found out each program I used detected different things, and of course, you can't install ALL of them, so... if you know which could be considered, say, the ones one-can't-do-without... Eli

Backup your Registry...
- Press "CTRL - ALT - DEL" keys all at the same time to start "Task Manager"
- In the Task Manager window click on "File", then from the drop-down menu select "New Task (Run...)"
- In the "Create New Task" window enter\type "regedit" (without quotes)
- Once Regedit opens click on the FILE menu and select Export
- Save the file as backup. Save the file somewhere you will remember and not delete.
IMPORTANT: make sure to set the export range to ALL



I recommend you download RegSeeker. Extract it to it's own folder, open and double click RegSeeker.exe to start the program. Maximize the window and click clean registry. Check all sections and click OK. When the scan is complete, verify the backup box in lower left corner is checked and click the select all button, then select all again. Then right click within the search results and select delete. Run it again and again, deleting everything it finds until it finds nothing. Reboot and make sure your programs are working properly, control panel and add/remove programs windows open, etc (basically just do a quick check of everything). In the event anything was 'broken', you can open RegSeeker, click backups and double click any/all files to put the information back. A reboot may be required for the effects to be seen. Reboot When done.

You can uninstall Ewido, if you want. It's only a 14 day trial anyway.
