    Adware on win ME
    I've got bargain buddy visiting but he won't go away even with adawareSE. I always get a program in my startup window NPTK with a dos icon.
    Ive screwed with registery and add/remove,deleted in task manager and rebooted, all for nothing. It seems to reload when I use my dialup connection.
    Seems with win ME I'm limited to what antispyware I can use... any other suggestions?

    Adaware on Me
    Hiya Dave.
    I run Windows Me and have no trouble with spyware, run Spywareblaster, Ad-aware and Spybot with no problems. It's a wonder Wendy hasn't been on now telling you to change your O/S, Windows Me is like a red rag to a bull with her. Sorry can't help mate.

    Bargain Buddy
    Hi Dave.Not going to get into a discussion about Windows ME,as I use XP,but try this link.It might look a bit of a mine field,but if you take your time,you might find it useful for helping get rid of bargain buddy.If it looks all Klingon to you,maybe a family member or friend can help you.As for your other problem,I don't know.

    Good luck,

    Once your PC is working correctly again,please back-up the registry before you mess.I've also learned the hard way over the years :D
