    Hi

    Will Browser Hijack Blaster v1.0 Released remove the components
    of PeoplePC's software.
    They are the ones that ad the little blue smily face to your IE Browser.
    Just curious. ;)

    Probably not - Browser Hijack Blaster is built to notify you in real-time if any BHOs are added or if other web browser settings are changed. In that case, it would allow you to remove the BHO (but I don't believe that applies in your case).

    Hi Pieter

    Thank You for the Link. Looks like a good App. to check out.
    In this case I downloaded the full version of IE 6.0. I then went in and manualy removed IE and reinstalled the new download.
    Works great now :D
    This PC had a problem with the Video drivers being corrupt.
    The screen video would scrunch in and out like watching a Pepto Bismol comercial. I went to the Tekram motherboard site to get drivers and the newest BIOS. Whew!!!! I really had to clean up this PC.
    I installed an AV and a personal firewall. I hope this family likes it. I still need IESpell on here if I am to use it to post at Wilders.
    I better not take anymore of this thread up.. JV might put me on da spankin list. :eek:

    Pieter? After going to the download site you sugested, I decided to look around a bit. Is this person from Spywareinfo.com registered here? If not you need to go back and recruit that person. ;) This person looks like a good warrior.
    I didn't even know Phoenix BIOS makers tried to hardcode adware into their BIOS at one time. I guess I hadn't used Phoenix Mobo's much in the past.
