although my 10yo posted on here and tried to get help (ain't kids wonderful), i think i had better ask for the solution to something called Joke-bluescreen.

When i boot the pc and choose any profile to log in under i have a totally blue screen with a box in the middle that stated "Warning Spyware detected on your computer. Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer" Then up pops a Windows script host box that states cannot find file "c:\Documents and settings\dad\localsettings\Temp\.tt5.tmp.vbs" Finally, McAfee comes up with an alert for Joke-bluescreen.c and gives the location as c:\windows\system32\blphcgwpj0e93n.scr.

However, even though i tell McAfee to delete, have run Spybot S&D and CCleaner both in normal mode and in Safe mode, the poxy thing is still there. Now, this may not be dangerous but it is very annoying and i want it off of the computer please.

thanks for your help

a backup operating system because IE does tend to go wrong!, I'm using LinuxOS right now, it is free and you can run it straight from the cd without actually installing anything until you decide if you wish to..........my XP Pro suddenly refused to recognise my modem because of a fault in microsoft toolbar...i was advised to reinstall XP, but have no disk, meaning i could not get online........solution, run Linux cd, hi presto I'm online lightning fast, can play music enjoy free chess.i love it............
