    Re: newdotnet2_78.dll

    I found <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.cexx.org/newnet.htm>this site</A>it appears this is pretty nasty stuff. Warning: don't go to the website mentioned in Spanitz post without reading the information at the above link. In fact, may I suggest you edit your original post and remove the site reference mentioned in properties? <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15>

    newdotnet2_78.dll

    What is this file? I am very concerned that this DLL somehow loaded itself after I re-installed Win98-SE and Office. I had wiped all clean, and the day after, after connecting to the Internet, before my firewall kicked in, this seems to have added itself to the auto-run at boot (not startup folder, but shows up in the MSCONFIG program). This file is located in my WINDOWS folder, with a size of 88k and a date of last Saturday. I have run a spy-ware scan and virus scan, and nothing shows up. Anyone else know what it is? The PROPERTIES VERSION for this file says it is from "New Net, inc." whoever that is.

    Re: newdotnet2_78.dll

    Thanks. This is the info I was looking for. Scary thing is the ONLY thing that I loaded was the Earthlink software to make my DSL work.

    I also took the "dot" out of the company name...it wasn't a URL, but no big deal.
