    Do a google search: remove ucmore
    Then make your choice.

    It's a Search Toolbar

    If you are using IE....secure your ActiveX settings better....and also add a layer of ActiveX protection to IE via programs such as Spywareblaster.

    I checked my active X settings and set them to promt instead of Enable.

    I have it setup like this: download signd active x controls Prompt
    Download unsigned active x controls Disable
    Initialize and script not marked safe Disable
    Run active x controls and plugins Prompt
    Script active x controls marked safe Enable

    Is this good Bubba. any suggestions?

    It's a good start....and if you are going to continue using IE instead of an alternate browser that does not support ActiveX....you should start by visiting the below links....or Google search for securing IE.

    Internet Explorer Privacy & Security Settings

    Securing the Internet Zone
