SaveNow and New.Net Removal Instructions and Help

What is SaveNow and/or New.Net?
SaveNow is a add-on product distributed by Bearshare, DivX player, Imesh, and a few other downloadable programs. Its a product made by a company called WhenU. It tracks what websites a person visits and then pops up separate browser windows with targeted advertisements and special offers. It continuously is downloading updated information about new offers and collects a variety of information.

New.Net is product that is distributed in much the same way as SaveNow. Its an add-on program that has been distributed by KaZaA, Go!Zilla, Babylon, Cydoor, Gdivx, and WebShots in the past. Currently it appears to be distributed with eDonkey2000, IMesh, GDivx, NeoNapster and a few others.Its purpose is to enable computers to access the website names and email addresses that New.net has launched.

Examples of these New.net domain names are

shop .xxx .club .ltd
.inc .travel .tech .sport
.family .law .med .mp3

Although NewDotNet does not claim to be spyware, it has been associated with computer instability in certain situations. Both SaveNow and NewDotNet have been linked for computer instability according to the MS Knowledge Base Article 302463.
