  1. Greetings all. I am at my wits end to delete a dll from kazza. My little brother downloaded it while I was away at work and I have been able to remove everything I can find from it so far except one dll that windows is using. I am runnning Windows 2000 server on this particular machine. I have tried deleting it in safe mode, from the command prompt. I have deleted very registry key I can find as well. It is using rundll32 to act as a program, but I can't end it to delete it. I can end rundll32 but not this dll. Please someone help me!

    try running Ad-Aware to remove it.
    If not checking [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    in the registry to delete the reference thats loading it.

    If the filesystem is FAT32, you can delete the file by booting from a 9x/ME boot floppy and using del command.

    Well since the file system is NTFS, I couldn't delete it from a command prompt. What I finally ended up doing was re-installing kazaa and then re-removing all of its components. This time I was able to remove everything. A friend of mine had suggested it.
