Problem solved. http://img.tomshardware.com/forum/uk/icones/smilies/bounce.gif
I ran Windows Uninstall: it showed that the program was, or had been, present, but gave no options to deal with it. The Uninstall Program that I used to get rid of it showed VW as gone.
Then I cleaned my registry, of 23 items and the problem is now gone. http://img.tomshardware.com/forum/uk/icones/smilies/hello.gif
I prefer to use non-windows products since I don't trust Gates. Or doors, or windows.
I D/L'd mosox's recommended uninstaller, and will try it. Later, Thanks all for your help. Jim
