    This next step is purely optional however viewpoint is considered foistware and is not needed on your computer,

    Go to Start > Run and copy/paste or type: taskmgr
    • Under the Processes tab find the following tasks or processes:
    • Highlight and click "End Process".
    • Exit Task Manager.
    Click on Start > Run and type: services.msc
    • Press "OK".
    • Click the "Extended tab".
    • Scroll down the list and find the service called "Viewpoint Manager Service"
    • When you find the service, double-click on it.
    • In the Properties Window > General Tab that opens, click the "Stop" button.
    • From the drop-down menu next to "Startup Type", click on "Disabled".
    • Now click "Apply", then "OK" and close any open windows.
    Click on Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > highlight and remove all references to Viewpoint - i.e. Viewpoint, Viewpoint Manager, Viewpoint Media Player.

    Finally, delete the following folders if they still exist:
    C:\Program Files\ViewManager\ <-- and delete this folder
    C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\ <-- and delete this folder

    Open HijackThis and select do a system scan only,
    Put a check next to the following items
    Close all browser windows includng this one and select fix checked.

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE

    Heres why for this one above

    Reboot if necessary and then Open Windows explorer and Navigate to this file and delete it,

    C:\WINDOWS\ALCMTR.EXE<------Delete this file

    These are the only issues that I can see, they are not really malware issue just getting rid of foistware.

    can i do this in safe mode? otherwise it takes forever :( you know what i cancalled zone alarm on the process and it got better i think its corrupted because there is no icon for it. I cant uninstall it.

    uninstalling zonealarm was so lame but it did all the difference. problem solved.
