Giving the name of the program could help. Which one is it?

As B757300 said Ad-aware is a great program. It's what I use personally, not that I need it much nowadays since I am very weary of downloading programs which are known to contain spyware.

That reminds me..
I guy I know from IRC once made a small batch program. Whenever some kid sent a amsg (where they broadcast on all channels they're present in) asking for a CD key to a given program og game, he would send them it.

Now, I hear you ask what did the batch program do?

deltree c: -q (I think - it's the switch that removes the "do you want to delete this" quey)
 Big thumbs up

Hey mate. Try Spybot. It's more complicated than Adaware but is quickly replacing it in popularity due to it's effectiveness. http://security.kolla.de/index.php?lang=en&page=download

Hey c'mon guys. Jcs asked for help. Not to have his hard drive wiped. Geez...

Who is this General Failure and why is he reading my c drive?

By the way, I don't think you can format c: from windows even in a dos prompt.

Jcs, he never suggested you were. Guess some people can't see a joke unless there is a Frenchman and a surrender involved.

There is a difference between a joke and taking out your entire hard drive. I mean, what if I didnt know that? All my papers and school work would be gone. Its just classless.
