Does anyone know what STUB is? I found the file 'ebkrdr' in my Program files containing only a single .exe icon called STUB. I now find its in by start-up as well. Can it be safely deleted?

How to manually remove eZula's downloader/installer.
See if you have stub.exe on your system. Do a search on you hard drive for 'stub.exe'. You'll find it in Windows' System or System32 folder.
If there's no file like that, about 52K in size, you don't have the downloader/installer. (Some may find a 'stub.exe' in the CuteFTP folder - don't delete that one!)
Open a command prompt (aka DOS window) and go to the directory stub.exe is in.
Type this (hit enter at the end of each line):
stub.exe -UnregServer
del stub.exe

How to remove eZula's Web downloader/installer.
If you downloaded TopText from eZula's Download Site, you have an additional downloader/installer on your system. Again, we can't detect if it's on your system: touching it is igniting it.
Here's how you can find out whether you have it, and how to install it:

See if you have ezulaboot.dll on your system. Do a search on you hard drive for ezulaboot.dll. You'll find it in Windows' Downloaded Programs folder.
If there's no file like that, you don't have the Web downloader/installer on your system.
You'll need regsvr32.exe for removal. Do a search on your hard drive for regsvr32.exe. You'll find it in Windows' System or System32 folder. Take note of its path.
Open a command prompt (aka DOS window) and go to the directory ezulaboot.dll is in.
Type this (hit enter at the end of each line, the path to regsvr32.exe may differ if you're not on Windows NT/2000):
C:\WinNT\system32\regsvr32.exe -u ezulaboot.dll
del ezulaboot.*
eZula's Web installer is now removed from your system.


some sort of "browser enhancement prog" aka spyware.

It's scumware - effectively a trigger installed with such undesirable programs as Kazaa, etc to fool websites that pay for hits and referrals that you've come from the programs planter - thus depriving honest webmasters of much needed income.
