I managed to clear out all the ctfmon. exe from this hear PC that was causing me grief only to run (an advised to) shareware spyware jobby which told me I also had a trojan. So I went hunting for it, DOH ! Ended up with a good dozen bloody web host hijackers on here now and can't get away from the little buggers, so it's a total re-install tomorrow if we can find the discs.(May have to resort to something.

So I may be gone a while ;) :blush: :biggrin: :sad:

Oh god I know that job, a lost day babysitting the reinstallation!;)
Strange that all these sort of probs stopped when I moved to Apple.

Good luck finding the discs.
See you on the otherside,

doesn't anyone do a ghost image of their pc's like i do once they've got it set up as they want it?

15 mins to create image run, 15 mins to reimage and you only have to be there for the first couple of mns to start it running.

I gave up on Windows just over a month ago (viruses, bloatware etc.) and switched my home PC to Linux. No need for extra anti-virus software and my PC is now fast and responsive again. Best of all, it's free, including the office apps. And a doddle to install - even for me!

Linux comes in various 'distributions'. Of which Ubuntu is probably the easiest to install and use.

I actually love reformatting my computer and reinstalling everything and I do it at least once a year. It's a nice feeling when you switch it on with a brand new install and clean registry.

listen to what the man says…
Double double Macs are trouble
Put them out with all the rubble
Sliver of ipod
In the skip throw
Screen of mac and software of Apple
Tunes of Ipods and keys of powerbooks
Like a hell company is all rubble
Double double macs are trouble
Apple burn at the consumers double


...see even Shakespeare thought they were shoot!
