Hi guys !
As you may have guessed I fired (terminated) my last isp...(or as Chuck would say my Internet Service Provider :p)
I recently went from dial up to broadband ((which is wonderful!!!!))

but now I have all this peoplepc junk in my files... what's the best & safest way to delete them ? yes : I already deleted all info from the actual webmail site etc.

ps..Can I say DON'T USE THEM>>>THEY STINK ?

Thanx in advance...RJ

What kind of "junk" are you talking about? If any software was uninstalled, remove it through Add/Remove Programs.

The "junk" I'm referring to is all the files including desktop and shortcuts input from the fired isp. I want to make sure it's out of my system, but when I bring up my add/remove programs....it shows nothing next to their icon for info/files. I don't want to cause issues...can I just right click & delete from "start pop up menu" ?

I would recommend not deleting anything in the registry. No matter how benign you think an entry is, you could cause serious problems. The risk is just not worth it.

Desktop shortcuts can just be deleted. Other than that, I still don't know what you mean by "junk". Be specific. Where, in what applications, are you seeing your old ISP's name?
