    startup program (WinXP)

    I notice that one of the programs that starts up automatically with my WinXP is called I_anets.exe. I wonder if this is a spyware. I have used Adware to check but cannot identify this exe. I also notice that when I close IE, an blank Windows pops up and the heading is about an Ad. Does anyone know about this I_anets.exe?

    Thanks

    Re: startup program (WinXP)

    I would try disabling it as a startup item and see if the pop-up goes away. If you did not knowingly add this EXE file as a startup item, more so the reason to disable it.

    New spy/adware comes out all the time, and I would not be surprised to discover that this is a new one.

    I think that is a spy/ad ware. After I disabled it from the startup, my IE returns back to normal. The only sites that I went to are yahoo.com and cnn.com.

    Thanks
