I now get a message when i start up my computer saying that it cannot find
"c:\progra~1.newdot\~1.newdot\~1.dll". How can I rectify this error message?
And if I needed it why did Antispyware suggest deleting it in the first place.

Dazzed and confused :S

Lockeyphage,

The message means that Windows is trying to load NewDot.net but can not
locate it. Go to Start, Run, type in
msconfig
Click OK.
Click the Startup tab.
Under Startup Item look for NewDot.net and UNcheck the box next to it.
Click Apply, then Close. You should be prompted to restart the system.
Do so and the message should not appear again.
Also, suggest you boot to Safe Mode :http://snipurl.com/dmbp
and then do a Full system scan with all 3 option boxes checked to ensure
the crud is gone.
