    Just installed MRU Blaster and it worked great on Google and IE URL's, but didn't eliminate any MRU's from "Ask Jeeves" search engine. Any suggestions on how to eliminate these other than individually deleting each entry?

    Sry, can't help w your question, 'cept, you maybe should delete AJ altogether. AskJeeves runs MyWebSearch Bar, MyWay.com, MyWebSearch.com MySearch.com, and all their variations (see, e.g., www.websearchu.com/AskJeeves.shtml
    or http://searchenginewatch.com/search...cle.php/3337511) which are BHOs and hijackers, difficult to remove spyware, often bundled with other spyware, and resist uninstallation.
    AskJeeves also runs MaxOnLine, which says at http://www.maxonline.com/direct_mar...egistration.php that it's products allow "direct marketers to acquire permission-based information from a consumer during the registration process on the MaxOnline Network of partner websites" a/k/a "steal private information in confusing adware click-thru's and sell victims' e-mail addresses to spammers." There are hundreds of web sites where users complain about the difficulty of removing these AskJeeves properties. The co seems to be riding on past reputation as it slides into the mud.
