    Hi Guys,
    This is a problem on my big sis's pc. She was having trouble getting on the internet with her aol account. so for curiosity she partly installed a freeserve disk, but stopped before she fully installed, as she managed to get in touch with AOL and sort out the problem.
    She is now getting problems with freeserve as almost anything she clicks on starts up the freeserve set up again.

    She uninstalled it and looked for references to it using search files, but she is still getting it.

    She says it happens when she uses MSN explorer and clicks on her favourites for some strange reason.

    I am pretty familiar with the registry, so if you think the problem is in there, I will be able to get rid of it if you point me inthe right direction.
    Thanks for the time guys,
    Gus.
    ps it is not in the start up menu, or at least no reference to freeserve is there.

    have you tried the 'Find'?

    put freeserve and any files with
    that in its name will come up.

    you could also try fs but this will
    bring up quite a few, so pick
    through them carefully.

    Best of luck, John

    Hi john, when I talked to her earlier, she said she used the find function, but my bet is, she didn,t have it on look in C drive.

    She is in bed now, but I will try it tommorrow.

    Thanks for the reply,
    Gus
