Hello, I checked and ran a virus check, deleted any at risk files, restarted
my computer and then tried to delete my internet files folder and I received
the same error message as I posted earlier ... You mentioned a "proggy"
called "Hijack This", what is it and why am I having this problem? Isn't
deleting temp. internet files part of regular computer maintenance? Please
advise. Thank you for your help!

Hi again TJ as I said I've never experienced this one and I am only going on
what I read on another website forum where someone else had that same error
as yourself. I googled your error (which is always a good start to finding
solutions to your probs because there is generally someone else out there
who has had the same thing happen). Anyway, on these 2 pages Hijack This was
recommended. Your prob may have a different source/solution but it can't
hurt to try something.

I have used Hijack This once before for a spyware prob (not for the same
error as yourself) and this is the fab website with alot of great info that
I went to:
http://mvps.org/winhelp2002/unwanted.htm

It has a link to Hijack This and tells what steps to follow.

Best wishes from ~purplegrrl~
