Hi All! I can normally do pretty good when it comes to cleaning up computers with a ton of spyware. Something I do for friends and family mostly with kids Anyways I have my cousins here right now which was infested probably the worse I have ever seen a computer be. The problem I am having is at start up a few xxxx.dll try to load up. The question is can I just delete them. If so would I just type in the run box - COMMAND-the name of file - and then just delete it? Any suggestions? One site which I am sure most of you know is Computercops.com which is pretty awesome. The link I gave is one of the 3 files showing up which LZIO adware.
Are they in the start menu? Any advise is appreciated.The Answer to the New York Tax Law - Repeal, REPEAL, REPEAL -

you may have to check for viruses on that also.
meanwhile, Adaware has gone through some changes, I'm told, and it sounds like a new version or product is out. should be a freebie. take a look at lavasoft.de and see if there is anything there to download.

Have you gone into the system configuration utility and unchecked some of the start-up programs?
I had one program that kept re-installing itself even after I deleted it, (or most of it) I couldn't delete all of it because [windows message: the file is currently in use] the program kept re-installing.
I looked around, and found that the start-up programs was where the problem lay.
I went to
typed in "msconfig" (no quotes)
and got the system configuration utility
On the sys config utility window, the last tab is labeled " startup"
Look at all the programs and applications listed. Start unchecking the most obvious ones, and restart the computer.
If the puter messes up, go back and re-check the last ones you unchecked.
The only programs I allow on start-up are
my battery backup,
Everything else is unchecked. My computer runs MUCH faster, and I don't have programs rushing in at start-up and creating a bottleneck jam.
Go to www.pchell for tons of virus, dll, trojan, and general computer problems. It's been a lifesaver to me more than once.

I'd boot into safe mode before running your spyware software and see if that takes care of it.
