I get this when I try to go to a website in Win XP IE7. If I alt ctrl del, I
see in the IE 7 screen the word Hungapp. How do i get rid of this adware,
virus, etc...whatever it is?

A hung app is a hung application. One that for one reason or another is not
responding. It is hung up. It is not a virus. It is probably caused by an
IE add on. Try without the add ons.

Run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log
to an appropriate forum.

Checking for/Help with Hijackware

When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
( is the preferred tool to use.
It will help you to both identify and remove any hijackware/spyware with
assistance from an expert. **Post your log to,,,, or other appropriate forums for review
by an expert in such matters, not here.**

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.
