    I just bought my computer and I decided to try AOL since the first time that I logged on to the internet chat room I got a Icon on my desktop called eye popping. I tried deleting the icon but when I turn off my computer and turn it back on its up there again. I tried to empty my recycling bin afterwards that did not work. I get a little screen every time I turn my computer on that is asking me to accept these terms and conditions. I read the terms and conditions it tells methat in order to delete it I have to go to my modem and click disconnect. I tried that, but I cannot find the disconnect button, it also gives an email address but when I go to the site there is a blank page. The email address is [email protected], please help!

    Hi, Pretty sure that dialer can be removed by SpyBot Search and Destroy....somehow, that little dialer has sneaked into the system and you can only remove it with tools like SS&D.
    Your post probably belongs in the Security forum, but I will give you help here and mods can move it if they like.
    Download SS&D to the desktop, run and install it.
    There is a forum post here from Rollin Rog that has good info and directions for you to follow.

    Read the instructions for installing and using SpyBot.
    The main thing is to install SS&D, and then go online and check with the autoupdater in SS&D for additional updates.
    There are presently a lot of "Skin" updates, but they are for the appearance of the program, nothing you have to have right now. Just get the Includes and program updates, they install automatically, and then go offline and run SS&D, this time, click "Fix Selected problems", all the things that are checked by SS&D and in red will be what you want to remove.
