Hi

I have a custiner whose favourites list keeps re-populating with rather rude server entries..I have cleaned and re cleaned the machine, dusted the reg, run AV etc etc...everytime the machine re-starts the list populates itself again..I remember reading something somewhere about a little application that cleans the list up permanetly...ring any bells?

I looked on Symantec and can't see that this is a virus...anyone any clues?

Nope...not spyware...previously installed spybot and that is clear, ran ad aware yesterday too and that was fine.

I have advised the customer never to visit the site again that caused the problem as the entries in the list are all filthy and he now cannot let his children onto the PC.

System scan with Norton came up with no errors either.

Ho hum.

You are little stars...the lot of you. I shall forthwith venture to customer's ailing PC and apply....

Thanks chaps et chapesses.
