STCLOADER.EXE is spyware, and should be removed with a spyware scan if you are having troubles because of it.


This is spyware. If you have it or are having problems because of it, then I'd recommend a spyware scan.

I am a bit of a novice in computing and believe I have a problem. A message window pops up saying that the stcloader file is corrupt and to reinstall it. How do I do that. I have downloaded spybot and ad-aware and that window still pops up. Can you help me?

Make sure that for spybot and adaware you've downloaded the latest databases of spyware definitions as well before you run a scan. You might also try Microsoft's new anti-spyware program.
