DW error (dw.exe)

"DW error" on boot
in details explained as dw.exe

I run into DW error on boot with win98 and win98SE on two different computers that came in for repair. Even though it does not seem it is a major problem. I did a lot of research but could not figure it out. Has anyone run into this error message before and any solution to it without formating and reinstalling win98?

Grrrrr......&$%*&ing Spyware.

Add/Remove Programs > DownLoadWare (DW.exe)

It's a bug you get from using Kazaa. You may want to get the free program 'AdAware' which will show you what other spyware bugs you may have on your PC. The program is free and available for download:

I don't know if you already have fixed this problem but the exact program that causes this is the Media Loads Installer program which can be found in the add/remove programs.
