What program was it?

I had a devil of a time with Wild Tangent on my desktop. That's some kind of shareware that comes bundled with some pc's.

Let's just say my husband's idiotic "friend" was drinking at the house and
"showed" him a "photo", if you get my drift.
(can you say "embarrasing?"!)

If you want my expert opinion.... I would open your wallet and take out your credit card...... call Dell and order a new computer.
No need to thank me. You can donate money by providing me with your bank account number. :P

jkath,
Any idea which FIX worked?
I had the same thing happening a while back and as Rumpelstilskin (sp)
suggestred it was in the start up list. Removing it from there worked.

I had a, I think you would call it a Trojan Horse, that went in and rewrote my home page address in MS Internet Explorer. Every time I logged on I would get popup after popup advertising all kinds of sites, mostly X rated.
I found the bogus address and removed it. That solved that problem.
I just found site that has a simple "FIX" to remove the MS Messenger from your computer. It doesn't do any good to remove it from the start up, every time you "boot up" it is read right back in the start up file from the Register.
This site has a lot of Tech goodies.

Glad you solved your porblem.

Charlie

Hey Charlie thanks!! I have been trying to get rid of Messenger for ages & now it is gone! Hooray!

Jkath, I use Spybot to keep nasties out of my PC - I find Adaware a little too "enthusiastic" for my liking! I had to keep using System Restore to put essential things back that Adaware had nuked lol.
