IE Help 'hole copy.exe'

  boo_hiss_boo 15:38 27 Nov 04

Hi Guys

I have a new search bar and lots of pop up arriving each time I am on IE. I have Winpatrol running so I was a little suprised (until my daughter said she said yes to something when updating MSN!!)

Anyway, I have tried to remove this through winpatrol (listed as hole copy.exe) but it just stays there and the bar is annoyingly still on screen and the pop up just keep-a-coming.....

Please help

Many Thanks

Try deleting it in Safe Mode, (Tap F8 when booting)

thansk for the reply. I have tried to delete in safe mode but no joy, I click remove, Winpatrol asks me do I really want to, I click yes and then.... nothing, it just stays there.

I went on to my daughter logon and there were some exe files on her desktop, I have deleted these and removed them from the recycle bin but then I got a message from winpatrol asking if I wanted the programme 'senddumb.exe' to be added to the start up menu. I clicked no, but I think I may end up going round in circle on this one.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Download and run Spy Sweeper 30 day free trial. You don't say your OS, but if it's XP, turn system restore off before scanning.

I have tried all of the above and no joy, lopdotcom was detected and removed but the search bar is still there.

I tried looking at some other threads and found one relating to a search bar at the top and bottom of the screen (which is the same as me). I looked into the thread and it was from a bundle package linked to MSN plus (which my daughter downloaded without me knowing). I followed the link and uninstalled MSN plus, I also ran spy sweeper again.... and still the search bar appears. I can find no mention of it in the add/remove programmes. MSN plus is uninstalled.... spysweeper now tells me no spyware is found.... and STILL the bl**dy search bar appears on the bottom of my screen

You will need to

(a) post it in "chunks" because of the 800 word limit on this site

(b) add a blank line every other line to double-space it so that it ends up as intelligible.
