From this i can see the dxsetu O4 line. I tried fixing it and disabling dxsetu.exe from running at startup, using msconfig, but it seems to regenerate itself.

I have tried finding the file on my computer, but to know avail. In msconfig it says the file path is C:\Windows, but I cannot see it there even with hidden files shown.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Adi

mines started to get very slow too and i'm having some hard disk problems. all bad.

i've looked at others who have had similar problems and the only reason i can't follow the instructions to get rid of it is because i cannot find dxsetu.exe on my disk anywhere

Hi...while you are waiting to hear from one of the experts, you could update hijackthis to the latest version, which is 1.98.2.
