I was 'suckered' into thinking I could see who was watching me and after a few times noticing 'spy ????' I clicked on it. my logic was.......a wee peep and i'll delete it in control panel. I did that - the spy prog did nothing? - so into control panel....deleted it - but a wee icon was there next to my clock......grrrrrrr
after a bit of thought and I note no evidence of the program in control panel, I spotted 3 progs in cntl/alt/del iehelper, firefoxhelper, and another helper. I found folders in c:\programdata (by date) under spy???? tried to delete but couldn't. BUT after f8 at start-up (safe mode) I culled them.
the wee icon has gone......but is that it?????

I found that if you make another account on your computer, make it an administrator account or this will not work, and log off the account that has Iehelper.exe, or when you turn off your computer, just log into the new account. If you have more then 1 administrator account on your computer then log off the Iehelper.exe account and into another administrator account. What you do is then, you press the windows button(between the Alt and Ctrl buttons on the lower left conner of the keyboard)+R, and then type (%appdata%) and find the Rhelper folder and delete it. If, the Rhelper folder is not in there then go to My Computer and go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data and find the RHelper folder there and delete it. If, the folder is not there then get your lawn mower and mow some lawns for a small price and do this until you have enough money to buy a new computer because, i have no idea what to tell you if the RHelper folder is not in the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data folder.
