Not sure what it is, but it seems to be loading every time I restart my computer. I ran AdAware, removed it, restarted, and there it was again. How can I track down what is loading it? I am running WinXP Pro.

Did you use the latest ad-aware? ver 5.71 I think, it will find dozens of files the earlier version misses.

Yes, I am using the latest version of AdAware. I was using LimeWire, but have not been for some time. This just started showing up out of the blue.

Might also make sure your anti-virus definitions are up to date. Them buggers do the damnedest things.

This is all I can find (from their site):

8. How do I uninstall TopMoxie?
You can uninstall the TopMoxie by following the following steps in order:
Close all your browsers.
Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel and remove the TopMoxie partner module (such as Schoolcash or Technology4Kids) followed by the TopMoxie entry. Please note you must first remove the partner?s module before TopMoxie or the uninstall will leave an entry in you Add/Remove Programs.
Delete the file folder c:/program files/topmoxie.
Empty your recycle bin.
Like most software programs, TopMoxie does add some entries to your registry but they do not change the behavior of your PC once the application has been uninstalled. These entries should not be removed unless done by an experienced computer user.

Spyware sites list javarun.exe as the startup file. It may be hidden.

I hate this crap.
