    delete in safe mode.

    search on internet

    Just delete the files and remove the registry entries and shortcuts for it.

    tried deleting the folder in programs but it tells me i cant as its in use!

    deleted it from the start up list will restart and see what happens next!

    thatshould work - I would suggest you download 2 programms from cnet.com for free

    CCleaner - good way to clean up all the cookies and **** that is constantly clogging up the PC - also quick way to clean cookies before using quidco

    Advance Windows Care - looks for spyware and checks registry as well as a host of others - easy to see file for start up files and programmes - easy to switch off

    thanks very much all :-)

    Another way maybe is to download a prog that will let you choose which progs start up when you switch pc on ]download for free here you can select/deselect exactly what you want to start or stop from a list.

    I haven't used this one myself but it has got some really good reviews !
