    "Removing Web3000

    Warning: Do not use AD-aware to remove Web3000 without first removing the host software. Web3000 replaces wsock32.dll (C:\Windows\System\Wsock32.dll) and possibly other Windows system files. These will not be restored if AD-aware is used first. By default, users of Windows Millennium, may be protected. Windows Me stores files in protected form. The System File Protection (SFP) prevents a user from installing software that might make the operating system unstable. To learn more about SFP see my Windows Millennium Help and How to page."
