    Sorry for the double-post, but my last post is cluttered enough. What does it say when you try to delete them? What I do in cases where it tries to give me guff, I download killbox.exe. If it says that it's write protected or in use, tell killbox to delete it on startup.

    That should take care of most whatever is visable!

    And this has to do with carnivorous plants how?
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    Welcome to the General Discussion forum. What goes on here does not neccessarily pertain directly to carnivorous plants. If you really want me to pull an answer out of a dark recess: our buddy JLAP couldn't bloody stand using his computer because of these problems, no computer no TF, no TF no cp fix.

    TF is about more than just plants, it's also about community. And that's one of the things that makes this place great.

    Holy cow I've only got like 6 running processes. You need to be more carefull, in some cases its alot easier to just reformat the hard drive and reinstall windows.
    My life sucks

    Betcha you've got more.

    "Running processes" is more than what you think you've got going. If you're using XP, hit CTRL+ALT+DEL and go to the processes tab. If you're using 9x or anything later, go to start-> progs -> accessories -> system tools -> system information and go to the "running processes tab." Alternative to that, run adaware and look at the log, it'll show you some of the processes running.

    That's one of the reason that problems like these are such a pain for people- you can't always find them the way you find other things.

    Firefox is not the solution because the problem isn't the popups, the problem is what's spawning the popups. The effect is unrelated to browser. HOWEVER I'd advise that people use firefox because it can help to prevent situations like this where malware is secretly installed on to your computer.

    I agree with youdude, IE is horrible. But that is not the problem here. Like est said this is something totally different.
