    Project 1 its time OK?

    anybody seen this? I recentley had this popup straight after booting
    Project 1
    its time
    OK
    it stalled the bootup (no taskbar,no icons)just a cursor and a little box with the above text and an ominous OK button-i didnt press it
    after terminating it from the task manager the machine took 30 min to finish booting
    had to re-install to get rid of it.......

    Try looking at this..........nice young Swedish lady's site

    http://swedegirl.diaryland.com/031128_31.html

    Looks like it was some sort of adware/spyware? otherwise, have you been doing any online/interactive training courses?

    What has happened, I guess, is what I call a "deadly embrace"...........two proggies trying to use the same resource at the same time. I have frequently had this problem with the "nag screens" associated with time limited trial software, so if you download any, get rid of it 1 day before it expires

    Cheers

    BTW I found the link within a few seconds using Google. Just put the phrase in "s to restrict the number of hits.

    The link was entitled "I suck: and that's cool"...........can't imagine what she was referring to?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    yeah go swedegirl -i was there for ages .....never thought a blog would interest me

    im not sure what nag ware i may have had on the machine at the time........
    although i had d/l ed some patches from a warez site the week b4
    id say thats where it came from

    i did google for it at the time......i didnt find anything -but as you saw there was lots of links with 'time' and 'project 1' but only swedegirls site was relevant-that and something that was in greek i think-not much out there on it-which surprises me,cos its been a few months since it happend

    Yeah,

    Like I said, you have to use inverted commas to limit your Google, otherwise it will search on words?

    Please do not take that as any sort of criticism........just some advice on fault finding & correction, hell I will be 54 on my next anniversary (birthday)...........some of us old farts might just be able to help..............hey, ask my 8 year old nephew about "uncle johnno's" game hacking skills



    Good luck
