    If you have SSD v1.1r4 you should be able to easily deal with this. If not, please post a copy of your results so as we can advise.

    I guess you didn't get my PM reply. So here is a copy. I'm not sure how to be more specific.
    --------

    You can get it at our mirror here; http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/index.html
    Be sure to use the updater as soon as you have it installed.
    If you need help with it, the SSD forum is here; http://www.net-integration.net/cgi-...fff;act=SF;f=28

    Also, here are some good 'help' links;

    OK, i have tried 3 of them: Spybot (now i know, what does it mean SSD :( , next Adaware and Hijackthis. My prolivation is still with me, and I really dont know what to do next...
    I wish that inventors of "prolivation" will also lose such quantity of time as I, and other people, did. I wish them losing or lacking time especially when they will need it as hell...

    SSD handles this quite well normally. Again, I ask you to post a copy of your SSD results so as we can advise further. Simply right click in the results and choose 'copy to clipboard' and then paste into your post.

    Hi Jazzek

    According to your log you have 3 tracking cookies - just tick those 3 (at the top) for spybot to "fix" - you do not have "prolivation" listed, if you think you still have it, please tell us where it is you see it

    steamwiz is right that no signs show. What makes you believe you have any of it present?

    More important is that you still have not updated.

    Dear gentlemen, it has gone! I dont know exactly when, but last 3 steps I took were: one time SSD, next time SSD (with different list, the one I did send to you) and right after this I used just regular Provacy Eraser with "Clean & Reboot" option on. When I opened my IE 5.5 again, after rebooting there was no trace of "prolivation links".

    Well, I think I cant "repay" you with computer science - as as you could see I am not a computer guru :))) but if it happen that you would like to know something about Poland, its situation, culture and other "Uninteresting" :))) matters - just email me

    At the end I have one more question: I dont want bother too many people with MY problems, so tell me please, how do I have to set my IE 5.5 options to avoid prolivation horror again? I dont want to have it anymore

    Yours

    Jacek

    What made be believe that I do have prolivation?

    1) First: after cleaning history and internet files in my IE i still could see some urls when i started typing www.something

    2) Second: when I command my IE to visit those pages I could see word "prolivation" appearing at the bottom of my brower, and after prolivation I could see: - something - cgi - something and then the very url. Later I was on that site

    From my dilletant point of view now i can tell it was "AS IF" SSD did removed it after first or second time, but browers "ACTION" was "DELAYED" so it could still "see" those urls. After x-time running SSD and Privacy Erasure right after that, it was gone.

    OK, one more time thank you very much for your kind help. And if you can advise me how to set my IE options to avoid such troubles - I would be very grateful. And I wont disturb you anymore with this problem :)

    Yours

    Jazzek

    Hi Jazzek

    A couple of things to help you surf safer

    Go to Tools\internet options\advanced

    Under "Browsing" un-tick

    Enable Install On Demand (internet explorer)
    Enable Install On Demand (other)

    Go to Tools\internet options\security\custom level

    At the top under "ActiveX controls and plugins" select

    prompt
    disable
    disable
    prompt
    prompt

    You will get a lot of boxes popping up asking if you want to allow ActiveX plugins etc.....Only click yes on the sites which you trust - if you get fed up with the pop-up box and want to risk it, go back and change the ones on prompt to enable.
