[Inactive] Default Mail Client Opens by itself
« on: December 19, 2008, 10:28:58 PM »
The default email client opens by itself and will not stay closed or will not be closed when I try.  I tried installing a second email client - same thing happened even while on another login.  Tried housecall.trend..., AVG8, and Norton (latest free trial) and no problems were noted.  Please help if you are able.

Hi brs.  Is AskBar still installed?  I would like to see some more comprehensive logs but before you provide them, you need to know that I have made a personal decision not to help anyone who has peer to peer software installed on their computers (and this includes Bit Torrent software) so if you want my help, please uninstall any such programs now and reboot.

Go here and download DDS to your Desktop and doubleclick on DDs.scr to run it.  If your security software includes script blocking features, please disable these before you run this utility.  When the scan has finished, DDS.txt will open.  You will also be asked if you want to perform the Optional scan.  Click Yes and save both reports to your Desktop.  Copy and paste both reports in this topic.  The logs will be reasonably large so you may have to divide them into sections and make several posts to post them.

Please do not run any programs other than those that I suggest or install any new software while I am helping you.
