Thanks for the reply and the tip on the tool. That worked great!
A while back I had a web meeting and they used some softwre from a company
called MegaMeeting.com. It created a folder called ShowMyDesktop and
installed some software called ShowMyDesktop-10fps. That is the folder
where I found the PresCamES_10.ax file.
What sucks is there is NO uninstall that I can find. I did find this
In an Uninstall Key in the registry and it had the publisher and directory.
I have attempted to contact the vendor and if I hear no reply, I am going to
attempt to use the command above.
Anyway, thanks for the reply, that seems to have found my problem. I
absolutely HATE software that acts this way and does not supply and
uninstaller. It might as well be spam or a virus.
Also pisses me off that is somehow always is starting up and trying to do
