How does one get rid of this program from windows program files? Says it can't b deleted as it's needed by windows.

I can't disable it with my 'startup cop'. I can't get rid of with 'spyhunter' & 'spybot'. As it is in window's program file it keeps coming back everytime I start.

This program can generally be removed through the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel. NewdotNet will be there as simply New.Net.

If the program is not listed in the Add/Remove Control Panel, I recommend downloading Adaware from: http://www.lavasoft.de/ and seeing if that will get rid of it

If u can't uninstall it, remove it with spybot and spyhunter,,,and also with adaware...There's one crude method of deleting the file
Locate the installation directory of newdotnet, then delete it(it probably wouldn't delete bcos the process is running).
rename the runing process to something else, then create a new text document and name with the newdotnet process name.(rename the extensions too)
restart the computer, adaware or any other program should be able to delete it now since the file is no more in use

Cleaning your computer  - and protecting it in the future -  can't be answered with one issue.

As you can see in my url below there are at least 7 different issues, where you should decide 1 of each, or else you does'nt protect your computer at all.

The reason is, that the many different programs not always protects against each other, and each of them does'nt protect equally.

It's very important, that you study all of these issues in my knowledgebase (some of them are freeware):
http://www.tryware.dk/English/Knowledgebase/HowToProtectYourComputer.html

BTW: I'm using the Trend Micro virus-suite, and SoftScan , and haven't got any of my servers or computers infected since 1999.

Don't use the url from DANNIF above (http://www.newdotnet.com/#remove)

Following these removal instructions simply installs the SpyWare again.

Here's how to remove the NewDotNet SpyWare:
