The only program in that list that really needs to go is SpyBouncer; the porgram is bogus.

I don't have time to run through your whole list right now, but I'll try to repost tomorrow morning. In general though, Downloaded Program Files can be removed by right-clicking on them and choosing "Remove" from the context menu. Also- many DPFs get downloaded onto your computer by websites that you visit; if you chose to delete these from your system, they'll just get downloaded again if needed when you revisit the site that installed them.

HI, I removed Spybouncer like you said and few others that I thought that wasnt important. I also noticed another thing, There's 3 java programs on there. I don tknow if I should remove 2 program and just leave one on there or just leave all 3 on there. Here's updated List of objects that I copied and pasted here....also what do u think about this "House call program?" I think it's junk?

Leave the Java components; one is the initial installation package and the others are updates.

The "housecall" DPF was installed as part of an online virus scan (probably at Trend Micro). You can remove it, as it's one of those DPFs that the website will just reinstall if you ever go there for a scan again.

ok , I deleted some that I know for a fact that I dont need it there like you said " SpyBouncer" and few others. I guess thats all I needed to do. Thanks!

ok , I deleted .. " SpyBouncer"...

Good. You definitely should have some "anti-spyware" programs in your toolkit, but just make sure to use the reputable ones.

Ad Aware and SpyBot Search & Destroy are the two utilities most often recommeded for general spyware detection and removal, and both are available free of charge. Download links for both (as well as links to a few other useful programs & resources) are in my sig below.

Yeah I use almost all of em. I use Spywareblaster, Spywareguard, SpyBot Search & Destroy and Ad Aware SE. Those have been helpful. I wonder if I can use their link and put it in my sig like yours so others can see it and try it as well?

I don't see why not. Most of us who do malware troubleshooting here have those kinds of links in our sigs for just the reason you mention: it's a good way of giving members access to useful resources without them having to search for the info themselves. :)
