its a real hard one to remove, using tea timer you can auto canel the registry change to stop the start up then manualy remove it
Beware it shut down AVG Antivirus
This thing crashed my connection and gave me a strange ip. Somehow i managed to get online and downloaded Ad-Aware, that fixed it.
For 3 months I've not been able to use my computer because I Un-installed it - I now know it came with my qwest install program and i am pissed. All this time they've told me it was "MY" computer that was causing the problem. - I only discovered this because I put the same qwest program on an old win 98 computer (with nothing on it) to use....and quess what....I found "NewDot" and once again deleted it....The minute I did that - I could not get on the internet. How messed up is this?
You can remove it with bit defender (the antivirus program)
I remove the Newdot~2.dll with the AVG Anti spyware but when I startup my pc i take an error message:"Error loading:Newdot~2.dll The specified modul could not be found"

Best practices for resolving newdot~2 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with newdot~2. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
