To Know About NewDotNet
New.Net loads with Windows and even with MSCONFIG or a third-party program made to help you control start up programs, you'd have a hard time keeping it from starting up with Windows. The program is loaded in several places in your computer and the start up command is buried in several places in your registry. You might find yourself on a merry-go-round - when you remove it form all known startup locations, you'll find you've missed one, New.Net loads with Windows and puts all the hidden startup information back in your registry etc. Because New.Net is running at Windows startup and all the while Windows is running - you cannot completely remove it. Unless you use an anti-spyware program that will ferret out all pieces of the program and remove all of them at next boot. Pest Patrol, SpySweeper, and several others offer this functionality. If you don't find a program to remove all the pieces of New.Net during boot (before Windows loads) it will be very difficult for you to remove the program - the only other way is to find all the tentacles of its start up entries and then reboot and hope you haven't missed a startup entry somewhere. If you do get lucky and get all the start up entries you can, at that point, remove it with SpyBot since New.Net will not be running. It's a good place to mention that, in Windows, you cannot delete a file that is in use.
Generally, SpyBot does a great job. But it's a free program and as such is limited by the fact the developer simply does not have the revenues or the staff to keep up with all the changes going on in the world of adware/spyware. That being said, the multi-million dollar companies with staffs of hundreds can't keep up with it 100%. That is exactly why we recommend two anti-spyware tools. Spybot and SpySweeper make a good one-two punch.
Our suggestion? Download SpySweeper (or another highly-rated anti-spyware program) and sweep your computer. After the scan, you'll almost certainly need to reboot to remove the files which were in use when you did the scan. (You'll be prompted with a prompt something like "Some files cannot be deleted because they were in use, SpySweeper will remove these files when you restart your computer. Would you like to restart your computer now?" After you've restarted your computer you should be free of New.Net (NEWDOTNET).
