I have a problem with my computer where I cannot get it anything to work, cannot even get anything to load, etc. I will hit cntl, alt, delete and all these programs will come up, (Rundl 32, Rundl 16, and others) that once I hit end task on them, everything works ok for a few, then it starts again. The thing is, I don't even know what many of these programs are, and cannot find them on the add/remove program list in order to get rid of them. Even some that are on there and I have removed, just keep coming back.

Any advice?

The first thing that I would like you to do is download and run the following program (Spybot S&D), scan, delete everything in red.


Then, please download and run the following program (Adaware). Scan and tell it to fix everything that it finds.


Then come back to this thread and tell us how the computer is begaving. What you will have done is delete all the nasty adware (plus possible Trojans) from your system.

There is much more that can be dome, but this is the best starting place.
