I'm just wondering if anyone would be able to mail me a list of the original
windows installation components. It seems as though spyware has overrun my
computer. I would like to know which .exe files etc. to delete in order to
minimize the spyware that is in my computer. Just the files that are in the
windows folder. If anyone could do that for me, it would be greatly
appreciated. Please send it to tatopigeon@hotmail.com
Thank you.

There is no generic list that can be generated. Your hardware drivers,
software packages and utilities all add files to the Windows and
System/System32 folders. The file set will be unique to your machine. If
someone did provide a list, and you deleted all but what was on that list,
your system would become unstable, if not unusable.

It is better to use other tools; Antivirus software, AdAware, CW Shredder,
Spybot.
Have a good software firewall; the one that is included in Windows SP2 is a
joke...do not depend on it.

One last point. *NEVER* post your real email address in a newsgroup. You
are about to find out why. There are programs, called "bots" that harvest
email addresses from newsgroups like these, and then use those address to
send spam and malware. Of course, you probably know that already....and now
that you have posted your email address, you should change it. Because you
posted it, you need Antivirus and Firewall protection far more than you
needed it before.
