    recently internet explorer started to freeze after i opened a few browser windows

    on looking into problem and running adware i noticed some stuff that adware cannot remove

    gmt\EGIE Process.dll
    gmt/EGNS Engine.dll

    I looket at Gain site
    It suggested I lok for programmes linked to Gain

    Any ideas how to remove this garbage from my computer

    Not sure how it got on
    Maybe divx ,grokster or audiogalaxy

    Gator comes with the latest version of DivX. To uninstall it or simply remove it with Ad Aware you must kill the Gaotr process currently running in Memory. Go the task manager & try to spot. The name is pretty obvious. Once you've killed the process, run Ad Aware once again & it'll remove it this time.

    Check out this thread here. I managed to stop gator starting by removing its registry entries.

    Which one?

    Gator = spyware ... I guess.. Use Lavasoft Ad-Aware to solve this problem... ;)

    How to remove Gator's GAIN GMT software.

    1. Press ctrl+alt+del to bring up the task manager and end the task named "GMT" or "GMT.EXE"
    2. Click START > RUN and type in 'regedit' then press 'OK'
    2. Delete the follong keys and all their subkeys then close regedit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GATOR.COM and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GatorTest
    3. Delete the directory C:\Program Files\Common Files\GMT

    That's it, Gator's GAIN GMT software is now gone and you wont get any more popups.
    Your GAIN supported software will still function normaly.

    Why would you even want to keep Gator software on your computer? Just get rid of it all together.
