Yes, that is fine.

Right-click on the downloaded file and select: Extract to Autoruns\

It should create a folder on the Desktop also called Autoruns

In that folder, are there 4 entries, one of them being the application?

Of course if I OPEN the zip it shows the 4 items but wont let me do anything with them individually.

When I right click the autorun.zip the only extract option is EXTRACT ALL.... When I do that it creates the Autorun file with nothing in it. "folder is empty".

What happens if you right-click the autoruns application inside the folder and select: Run as Administrator?

Prescottbob try this

Right-click the zip archive file.

Select “Extract All…” from the pop-up menu.

Specify the name and location of the folder for the extracted files.

Click the “Extract” button or press the “Enter” key.

If the “Show extracted files when complete” box is checked a new folder window will be opened to display the unzipped files.

Start > All Programs > Accessories
Open the Command Prompt

At the blinking cursor, copy/paste (with the mouse) the following:

C:\Users\Binnie\desktop\autoruns\autoruns.exe

Does it run?

Can you post a capture of what you have. Use the Snipping tool...

Looks as if you are using WinZip.
Got WinRAR archiver here.

"show extracted files when complete" is checked and the new folder window is a AUTORUN folder with nothing in it.

Did I misunderstand this. Post #346

The Adobe thing I clicked on sure didn't look like the HD thing. I swear it looked just like the regular update window that comes up to install updates--but this one came up in the middle of the screen when I was leaving the REAL CLEAR POLITICS website having clicked on a like the took me to an article on REAL CLEAR TECHNOLOGY. However, that morning JAVA and ADOBE update windows had been persistent and I probably clicked on this thing to stop the interruptions.
