File name: NPWPF.dll

Your plugin and another (Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant) came with Service Pack 1 for the .NET-Framework 3.5. (Can come also with Framework 4?).

Both plugins have had security bugs. And both were on Mozilla blocklist.
The later has been cleared from blocklist after a recent update.

NPWPF.dll was still not clear as of 10.18.2009.

p.s. IMHO not nice to install a plugin during system update, especially without asking.

If You do not want it. Delete or rename it. *.dll_old will do. How 2.

You go to about : config, put "path" in Filter, after that You see a pref.
plugin.expose_full_path - toggle it to true, that shows You path in about : plugins.

Change to be Admin, go to location and rename.grinning smiley

I have just had a really good look at the K-Meleon folder on my computer & I can't find it in either of the extensions folders. My guess is that it is some form of cross-over from Firefox or SeaMonkey. In fact I logged into a site with K-Meleon yesterday & it seemed to know my password. I may be wrong about this but I don't remember putting that particular password into K-Meleon. Is this cross-over of information common with Gecko engined browsers on the same hard-drive?

I think the solution is in what Guenter wrote. He also explained how to find those global system plugins and settings that are used by lots of programs commonly:

Go menus: Configuration -> Browser Configuration / or go URI about:config

Type to Filter "path". Toggle path to plugins to true.

Go to menus: Help -> About Plugins or to the URI abouttongue sticking out smileylugins. aka about : plugins with no spaces.

It will tell You HDD locations of plugins after the pref is changed.

p.s. we should file as bug = change: show plugin path = true as default.


just saw: siria's post. siria You beat me - You were faster.

p.s. Sorry that what I meant was not as clear in Enlish as I (and another native speaker of my mother tongue) think. grinning smiley

1.) Do You remember all routine clicks? I do not! I merely remember my habbits grinning smiley

2.) Cookies or known passwords?

Guenter,

plugin.expose_full_path
