    What is the error?
    I know it is in newdotnet2_88.dll, but is it crashing something, or closing wrong, or what? newdotnet is a pain in the arse anyway.

    hi..
    it is spyware.. but i don't think it's part of paltalks software unless paltalk has recently "partnered" with newdotnet.


    a quick search of google's groups showed a bunch of stuff. here are two links.
    these should help you in it's removal. actually, i'll quote the one that comes directly from newdotnet

    quote from one of these pages :
    DO NOT simply delete the DLL, as it tampers with the default Winsock settings and manual removal will cause you to lose Internet access.
    http://groups.google.com/groups?q=ne...ews.com&rnum=9

    which states this:
    Direct form them:
    If you call them maybe you can give them hell.


    If, for some reason, the basic uninstallation procedure does not remove the
    application from
    your system, please perform the following:

    The procedure below is very detailed. Please follow each step carefully. If
    you have a
    question or are not sure about a particular step, please ask as soon as
    possible.
    Also, if you would rather a technician walk you through this procedure over
    the phone,
    please call us at (626) 229-7800, Monday through Friday between 8am and 5pm
    Pacific Standard
    Time.

    Create a backup Registry file in case you experience further problems:

    1. Click Start
    2. Click Run
    3. Type in "regedit"
    4. Click OK
    5. Highlight "My Computer" on the left
    6. Click the Registry menu at the top and select "Export Registry File"
    7. Name the file "backup" and save it to your Desktop. [This is just in
    case you make a
    mistake in the procedures below. Should you do so, locate the "backup" file
    on your Desktop
    and double-click it. Select Yes and your registry will be
    restored.]

    Check for New.net Startup:

    1. In the left pane of the Registry Editor, under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, click
    the "+" sign
    next to Software
    2. Click the "+" sign next to Microsoft
    3. Click the "+" sign next to Windows
    4. Click the "+" sign next to Current Version
    5. Click on the Run folder
    6. On the right, locate the line that reads "New.net Startup" and delete it

    Remove "New.net Application" from Add/Remove Programs:

    1. Under the same Current Version folder from above, click the "+" sign next
    to Uninstall
    2. Locate New.net Application and delete it

    Remove the New.net software folder:

    1. In the left pane of the Registry Editor, under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, under
    "Software"
    2. Locate the "New.net" folder and delete it

    Close the open folders above by clicking once on the small "-" signs next to
    them.

    Locate "Catalog Entries" folder:

    1. Under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder, click the small "+" (plus) sign next
    to System
    2. Click the small "+" (plus) sign next to CurrentControlSet
    3. Click the small "+" (plus) sign next to Services
    4. Click the small "+" (plus) sign next to WinSock2
    5. Click the small "+" (plus) sign next to Parameters.
    You should see 2 folders, "NameSpace_Catalog5" and "Protocol_Catalog9".
    6. Click the small "+" (plus) signs next to both of them
    7. Inside both folders, you should see a "Catalog_Entries" folder. Open each
    of them.
    8. Within each of those folders are numbered folders (i.e. 000000000001,
    000000000002, etc.)

    For the "NameSpace_Catalog5" numbered folders:
    A. First, make note of how many folders there are
    B. Highlight the first one
    C. On the righthand side, locate the line "Library Path"
    D. In that line, the rightmost column should begin with something
    similar to
    "C:\windows" or "%SystemRoot%".
    E. Locate any of the numbered folders that read
    "C:\windows\newdotnet2_109.dll"
    (or similar) in the "Library Path" line
    F. Delete only those folders referring to "newdotnet"
    G. If needed, rename each numbered folder so that they are all
    consecutive.
    For example, if there were 4 folders and you deleted folders the
    first 2,
    you will need to rename the remaining folders 00000000001" and
    "000000000002".
    H. Do this by right-clicking the folder name, left-click Rename and
    then type in
    the new number (be absolutely sure you don't delete any of the
    zeros).
    I. Next, highlight the "NameSpace_Catalog5" folder on the lefthand
    side.
    J. On the right, locate the "Num_Catalog_Entries" line. At the end
    of this line is
    a number in parentheses.
    K. Edit that number by doing the following:
    i. Double-click "Num_Catalog_Entries"
    ii. In the small pop-up window, select "Decimal"
    iii. Edit the value of the number on the left to reflect the
    number of
    remaining folders (in the case of the example in step G
    above, you
    would enter 2)
    iv. Click OK

    For the "Protocol_Catalog9" numbered folders:
    A. First, make note of how many folders there are
    B. Highlight the first one
    C. On the righthand side, you will see a line beginning with
    "PackedCatalogItem".
    Double-click on that word and a small window will pop-up.
    D. In this window, several columns appear with numbers and letters.
    At the top of the last column appears a path that will look
    something like,
    "C:\WINDOWS\NEWDOT~.DLL" or "%SystemRoot%" followed by a long
    list of characters. E. Look through each of the numbered folders and
    delete only those that indicate "C:\WINDOWS\NEWDOTNET2_109.DLL" (or similar)
    in the "Edit Binary Value" window described above.
    F. Rename each remaining numbered folder so that they are all
    consecutive.
    For example, if there were 13 folders and you deleted 2 of them,
    you will need
    to rename the remaining folders "000000000001" through
    "000000000011".
    G. Do this by right-clicking the folder name, left-click Rename and
    then type in the
    new number (**be absolutely sure you don't delete any of the
    zeros)
    H. Next, highlight the "Protocol_Catalog9" folder on the lefthand
    side.
    I. On the right, locate the "Num_Catalog_Entries" line. At the end
    of this line is
    a number in parentheses.
    J. Edit that number by doing the following:
    i. Double-click "Num_Catalog_Entries"
    ii. In the small pop-up window, select "Decimal"
    iii. Edit the value of the number on the left to reflect the
    number of
    remaining folders (in the case of the example in step F
    above,
    you would enter 11)
    iv. Click OK

    Again, you may close all open folders. Close the Registry Editor.
    Your changes will be automatically saved. Reboot your computer and attempt
    to access a website.
    See Step 6 (Registry backup) above if you experience other unusual computer
    problems.
    If your Internet access has been restored, we recommend you delete the
    registry backup
    file by doing the following:

    1. On your Windows desktop, locate the "backup" file that was created in the
    Backup Registry
    procedure above.
    2. Delete the file and remove it from your Recycle Bin also.

    Please let us know if this helps and if you have any further problems or
    questions.
