How do I remove something called search.us.com and TNT2user.exe ? and what are these any how? and they are currently attempting to start but i repeatedly respond no. Just in case, I went to add and remove programs and I found search.us.com and choose to remove it, but, I think that has caused more issues! and now my screen has an area the size and dimensions of a toll bar that will not fill in but always displays my desk top image? so frustrating! i am using XP professional ver. 2002 with service pack 3 on a E machine. My Thanks to all who reply, and help me correct what ever is wrong! I am a novice with computers but can find my way if given detailed, step by step instructions.
