Operating System : Microsoft Windows XP Home / Professional

Note : This guide should only be undertaken by those with basic knowledge of computers. Newbies may have problems with this guide.

Is your computer slowing down? Are you getting unsolicited ads? Or are you being redirected to unknown sites? If so, please continue to read on because I'm going to show you how to remove them and how to prevent it from happening again.

First off, let's get a basic definition of spyware/adware/malware. They can simply be defined as any software that covertly gathers information about a user while he/she navigates the Internet and transmits the information to an individual or company that uses it for marketing or other purposes.

There's many different variations of these software. Some are hijackers which basically mean they take over your computer. Some are the stealthy kind, which secretly operate and slow down your computer as they gather information and the like. However, the most common are adwares. This is the kind of spyware that's most annoying. It just displays unsolicited ads even when your Internet browser isn't even open. Very, very annoying.

If you have any of those symptoms - redirections to unknown websites, slowing down of your computer, unsolicited ads, etc.; then your computer is likely to have been infected by spyware.

Now that you have a basic understanding of what they are, let's get on to the steps on removing them!

Full guide here...

Dont thank me...thank TeamARP....

So about your problem...i checked around and found that you have nothing to worry about...you may check 2 links below for more detailed info about this...meanwhile...if i sum it up...it should be just a path to non-existant program or something like this...so its not some virus or anything like this....probably you uninstalled some program and it left this line there...so since it does nothing....you may leave it either checked or uncheck it....or even delete it from there so that it wont bother you in the future...all detailed steps to do this are also in one of those 2 links below (in 2nd if i am correct)...

dummy.exe [NWEReboot] is a process belonging to Ahead Nero and acts as a temporary file whilst cd writing is in process. This program is non-essential process to the running of the system, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems.
 
 
So i guess it WAS causing you problems...

Dont worry...its ok...just dont end this process while burning something with Nero...

Hahahaha...no no no...no need to backup your registry...

I just said so because i dont know whether Nero starts this file each time it burns a CD or DVD...thats what i thought...that in case it runs it (dummy.exe) when you burn something...that you dont terminate it in task manager...

Like I said...dont worry...everything is ok...no need to panic...

Ok I understand you....but anyway...at least on my list...Graphic card always had and always will have higher priority than m/b...so i wouldnt even consider buying a m/b before i bought apropriate graphics card... But then again...thats me...Graphics Silicon Freak...

And yes...I am also aware that computer addiction is very serious thing...so if you would be 2 weeks without your computer...serious problem may appear...it would be life or death situation...HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA... (but then again...i cant live without computer for an hour...so 2 weeks....huhhhhhhhhhhhhh....i rather dont even imagine what would it look like....I would drink 10+ beers per day...smoke 3 packs of Marlboro...had shaking hands and much much more...(and that would be just the beginning of this crisis)....
