    How do I get rid of this?

    It has no uninstall, it doesn't show in add/remove, and the six items that showed up in "search", once deleted, seem to have had no effect on this little bastard-spybot and adaware showed lots of crap; folders, files, keys, the whole nine yards. I can't think of anything else----HELP!!!

    I think I've got it-had to re-install to get it to show on add/remove, then still it shows up on a search. Deleted those, too, now running adaware and spybot-they're already showing tons of stuff, and I didn't even open the program! It is advertised as 'spyware-free'-STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE-IT"S POISON!!!!!!!!!

    My wife needs discernment lessons. She DL'd this in a fit of pique.

    I know what you mean about the wife. Mine downloaded a porn dialer and didn't tell me. Then when I saw it i thought i'd done it.

    Mine thinks because I have adaware, spybot, etc., and lecture about computor health and privacy, that I don't want her to have fun on the computor (She IS a great lady, but she gets upset when I lecture).

    To me, it's like coaching little league; sometimes you have to show 'em where the 'fun' is, then show them how to 'have' it.

    Now I get to work on the registry changes this little S.O.B. made.

    No shit. Everytime I visit my sister or parents I find crap like that! (CometCursor too)

    I found RegCleaner works great for those sneaky little bastards!
