    Hi

    I installed Block-checker and have uninstalled after finding it
    useless.

    I use Microsoft Antispyware (among others) to keep my computer from spy
    and adware. The trouble is, that everytime I switch on or reboot the
    computer Microsoft Antispyware pops up a message saying that
    "Adware.BlockChecker" is trying to install. It trys to install itself
    in part of the registry.

    Microsoft Antispyware give me the choice to remove the entry into the
    registry, but how do I stop it trrying to install itself? What and
    where is the install program for this?

    Can anyone help me?

    You installed *WHAT*???? Don't do things like that!!! Did you ask anyone
    first? Did you research it on the web? C'mon, man *think* first.

    Okay. Have you ran Spybot Search & Destroy? Or Adaware SE? If not, update
    them, reboot in Safe Mode, and run them. See if that helps. If not, post
    back here.
