I am not using any anti-virus. Please help...........

Answer
Since you aren't running any antivirus product on your computer, your computer certainly is infected by many viruses. So we need to get rid of all of them in order to make certain we can also get rid of jadid.exe.

Here's what will almost certainly work.

1) Download either Kapersky Internet Security, which offers a free 30 day trial at http://usa.kaspersky.com/downloads?domain=kaspersky.com, or F-Secure's Complete Internet security suite, which offers a free thirty day trial: https://shop.f-secure.com/cgi-bin/dlreg/ml=EN?ID=FSISTB&desid=TRIALL

2) Disconnect from the Internet.

3) Install one of these Internet Security products. Scan your system and follow any instructions it might give you.

4) Connect to the Internet and download any updates available.

5) Run another complete scan of your computer. Follow any instructions it might give you.

7) Reboot.
