I don't know anything about that, but I do know that the best solution currently available is this:

It is a little bit inconvenient though, so not what I would quite call elegant.

Any more tests you want to see? Should I start apologizing now? Or should you (bknblk)?

Hmm...a sony style rootkit? Thats the only thing I can think of that can hide it better

If that is in fact the case, there isn't any software out there that can remove it, let alone even detect its existence, that I am aware of.

Damn Elvin...you really do go Gungho when it comes to keeping your system running clean. I hope that those 14 processes were a result of a Safe Mode boot. I like to think that I run a rather clean system and I still have around 40.

Nope. That is my standard task manager. It's really only 13, one is the task manager itself. I told ya I was anal. LOL.

I don't allow anything that is not necessary to run until I start it up. Period. No themes, no system restore, no auto updates, print spoolers, help and support, fast user switching, DEP, indexing service, etc., etc. I love it too. Makes everything fast and snappy. I can't even stand to use other peoples PC's because they feel all slow and bogged down to me, even if they are "bigger" hardware.

I stand by my statements and you need to ask one of the Admins what the policy is before approaching me.

So many others have conquered, ruled, thrived and ultimately perished there that the list would take hundreds of pages. A mere sample would include: Byzantines, Persians, Arabs, Turks, Circassians, Kurds, Abbassids (Iraqis), Egyptians, Kharezmians (Genghis Khan), Mamluks, Mongols, Latins (Crusaders), Ottomans, French and English.

It is not and never was Palestinian land.

We don't use an ad server. The only ads that are external to nV News are PriceGrabber and IntelliTXT. The next time you get a pop-up while visting nV News can you provide some basic information such as:

- The URL the pop-up is originating from
- A privacy report (provided by the browser)
- Attach a screenshot of the pop-up

Also, check out IE-SPYAD.

https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www...ce.htm#IESPYAD

Quote:
IE-SPYAD adds a long list of sites and domains associated with known advertisers, marketers, and crapware pushers to the Restricted sites zone of Internet Explorer. Once you merge this list of sites and domains into the Registry, the web sites for these companies will not be able to use cookies, ActiveX controls, Java applets, or scripting to compromise your privacy or your PC while you surf the Net. Nor will they be able to use your browser to push unwanted pop-ups, cookies, or auto-installing programs on your PC.
Other browser configuration changes you might want to consider:

- Always ask for cookies
- Do not accept 3rd party cookies
- Update security settings to disable or ask to be prompted (ActiveX controls, scripts, etc.)
