    Chris:

    Thanks very much for introducing me to nCleaner. With all the garbage programs out there professing to clean the Reigstry, etc. and "Free Download" and then they hold you for ransom ("only $29.95"!!!) to actually DO the work this one's a breath of fresh air!

    The only reason I didn't choose Fixya!! was that after running this I needed to find the files that were taking up the OTHER 100G after nCleaner did its work, but this was a lot easier with all the garbage cleaned up: Adobe Creative Suite 4 seems to like to put files with a .cfa extension in a Media Cache directory that are as big as the files where I am actually working on the projects, and then not cleaning them up...some files were as large as 15G (an SD video capture of a 4-hour opera before editing - imagine if it was in HD!!!) In any case, thanks.

Hi,
You have to be careful you don't manually delete anything important. Better to use nCleaner, download, install, run. Do a 'Clean System'
and then go back and 'Shred Free Space'.
That will recover quite a bit of space.

Hope this helps

Error messages on desktop


You have a virus, First uninstall any program you do not recognize, then install ccleaner and run it at default settings to remove any junk.

Then in ccleaner go to the tools tab, and then startup.
Look for the newnext entry, and remove it.

The start up section is what calls the dll in question, removing it from the start up should get rid of the error.

You really should get an I.T. professional to give it a once over to make sure it is good to go.
