Solid Peer is spyware/advertising ware; which gets into computers from the net.
Here are steps to get rid of it; along with some great free programs:
If you think you already have Spyware/Advertising Ware in your computer, run these as follows: http://www.security-related.com/download2.htm
Download: SpyBot Search & Destroy; 1.3
AdAware at: http://www.lavasoftusa.com
CWShredder at: http://www.intermute.com/products/cwshredder.html
(CWShredder is intended only for removal of CoolWebSearch files; placed as spyware on the harddrive). It is not a "stand alone" scan, but needs to be run. Download the free version by clicking on "Download stand alone version of CW Shredder".
All 3 of the above programs run better and much faster when run in SafeMode.
To get into SafeMode:
Re-boot the computer, and immediately after starting up, Press and hold down, F8, at top of keypad.
When the options show on the screen, use the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard to select
It's best to run the AdAware scan first; 3 times; then re-boot.
Then, run the AdAware scan again 3 times; then run the SpyBot. Then, run CWShredder.
Reason for running so many times:
Some of these trojans' files can be deleted the first time; leaving some others; but on re-boot, they re-write the files that were deleted.
Running multiple times deletes most of it the first
If you wish to have a great program, after you clean out Spyware/Advertising Ware:
SpyWare Blaster 3.2
Great, free, program that STOPS spyware, trojans, home page hijacks, etc, BEFORE they get into your computer. Check it out at CNET at link: http://www.download.com/SpywareBlast...ml?tag=lst-0-2
If you will try the above, I am almost certain that it will solve the problem for you.
