    Whenever I try to scan the wildtangent directory.. C:/WINNT/wt/wildtangent, I get his dun dun.. dun dun.. from my harddrive and my whole system freezes up. It sounds like when your C Drive is full and you are starting up and it has to work really hard to start up windows. Anyway, I uninstalled wiltangent, but there is still stuff in the folder. I&#39;ve scanned it with Norton, AVG, and the NOD32 Paul made. It makes the noise and freezes my pc every time. If I leave it for 30 min it skips the wildtangent driver and at the end of the scan says it wasnt able to scan it. Same happens when I do a system scan with spybot. I tried to manually delete the folder but the same thing happens, even when im only right clicking on the folder. Then my system freezes indefinitely with the sound going the whole time. I have to restart then.

    I know this sounds really bizarre, but if anyone has any ideas about what I can do, please respond.

    Thanks,

    Mogadishu.

    format c: and never, ever install crap like that again&#33; I thought it was a well known fact.

    I would try contacting them.

    If you have Nero, you can try to delete it in the burning rom.

    heh.. no but really, id like to think im pretty on top of avoiding spyware etc., and i truthfully thought that wildtangent was just something that helps run online games. I think msn.com uses it for their games, and i downloaded it when nikegridiron.com said i needed it to play the game at that site.

    I remember doing something like this years ago before I knew better. I really don&#39;t think you&#39;ll ever get all of it out. All you can do is maybe go into safe mode and delete from there, then run checkdisk. Your registry is fucked, nothing you can do about that. You&#39;ll have to live with it till you reinstall everything.

    ok, i mean its not that much of a problem, everything seems to still works, but it would be nice to get rid of it.

    I&#39;ll do a fresh install in a couple weeks, so then it should be gone.

    Do you know if the stuff it left in the registry and C:&#092;WINNT will actually screw my system up or will it just get errors when I try to scan it?

    Thanks again.

    Mogadishu
