I had posted information relevant to this in another thread, and now cannot locate the original messages so I will try to direct this post to "Anthony" who had responded to my questions about this critical problem

Here is the new post relevant to this problem, directed to "Anthony".

"Anthony, I cannot locate the last message from you, however I had copied it and printed it out and intended to follow the directions in that message to remove the dangers posed by the ADLM,

I followed step one, and removed it from the "add/remove" list per your instructions.

When I attempted to locate the NOS file, I tried everything and could not locate it. I see a prompt saying "Refers to a location that is unavailable, etc.". I have tried everything to locate it without success.

Would you say that I am "safe" or is this C:\Program Files\NOS\ folder still lurking somewhere on the computer?? Is it possible that this file was removed when the ADLM was removed??

PLEASE HELP ASAP. Thank you for your recommendations and assistance.

DO YOU THINK I SHOULD START A DIFFERENT THREAD ON THIS PROBLEM SINCE I COULD NOT LOCATE THE ONE WE HAD BEEN ADDRESSING??

Warmest regards,
Quick

Hi Quick ,

I have followed your breadcrumb trail and here we are :)) Was "busy" watching Test Match Ruby yesterday :))))

If you killed the ADLM in "AddRemove" you have done the "security" fix . Odd bits and pieces may hang around but that becomes housekeeping ; I"m still an ardent "non-techie" fan of 'if it ain't broke , don't fix it".

I am not sure what your "prompt" is saying and who is saying it to you , when and where ; I need actual details to comment .

Have you actually been into the C:\Program Files\ .. folder and looked for a folder named "NOS" ?? ; all you need to know is that if it's there zap it , if it's not , excellent !!.

Again , if you are not sure , just ask .

Anthony

PS: if your Computer is hiding something from you there is usually a good reason for it to so do ; you'll get there when you are ready to get there without breaking things !!

PPS: if you click on your (screen) name to the left of any of your postings it will list all the threads you have made and all those to which you are contributing .

Anthony, Anthony!!

Thank you so much for all of the information. I felt "lost" for sure.

I did go into the C:Programs file and there is nothing there for the "NOS", so it must have been deleted when I deleted the ADLM. Also did a complete search of the computer. I agree with your philosophy:

"If it's not broken, don't fix it.". I did a complete search several times for this file and it was nowhere to be found. The prompt was one by the computer itself so apparently it is either not there or not accessible so best to leave well enough alone IMHO.

Thank you for the tips, especially how to locate messages which I have sent. That helps tremendously. I think I subscribed to one thread by accident and that was a problem. Have unsubscribed so now that will not be a problem in the future.

Thank you once again for your invaluable assistance. You are TOP NOTCH!!!! Hope you have a great day there!!

Warmest regards,
Quick

Hi Quick;

Glad all is well.

Do not compliment Anthony too much. It gives him a complex and then he is hard to deal with! :)
