    Hi all,

    I installed this software and it wont let me delete it. by an accident i let it access the internet when norton asked me if i wanted to allow this programe. when go to add or remove programes it only gives me the option to re direct to a web page. Does anyone know how i can stop the notification popups and stop this programe accessing the net by norton or anyother means??

    Thank you for your time

    Restart your computer, and start immediately tapping repeatedly the F8 key... and that will get you into safe mode... what you will see on the screen will be a bit strange... but that is normal...
