It did not block the download.

Auto installs upon visit.

I had to use Spybot to get rid of it.

Fully up-to-date and all things are ticked.

Odd.

Any ideas?

I have also posted at the fourm for spyware blaster and guard.

Hope for response.

Anyway better forget, spybot taken care of it.

Hot bar is an active X isnt it, Norton asked me if I wanted to block it, yes I put, does this affect?

But the progress indicator went up and a pop-up: Install sucessful.

Spybot removed: Hotbar script

Better get of to bed ;-)

PS. What happended to any other fourms? seems to have been blocked.

Thanks,
Gareth

Did this make your imagination run wild suzie?

Umm, I think it is, I am not sure.

Also, does spybot resident block hotbars site?

On mine it blocks www. marketscore .com but not hotbar .com

Thanks.

wot other forums? are they real or imaginary?

i received an email a couple of days ago from a large company and at the bottom of it was the message 'bring color to outlook'.click on it and it brings u to a page and a download box pops up.it's only for hotbar.fortunately i knew wot it was so closed the page down.don't know how a well known maker of pc products can advertise that kind of crap.

don't know about other site's but spybot obviously doesn't block that one cos i use it.

Real.

There was a post on here: any other forums?

It has been locked.

Yes, I got an e-mail from the manager of a PC company and on the bottom, make IE colourful.
Then a Link to hotbar, knew it was spyware but nothing has blocked it even though it was in the database.

Odd.

haven't been in here so didn't see the thread.

was it from a company in china or sumwhere similar? in english but chinese english?

don't know about the database cos i can never be bothered to look thru it

  Gaz 25 02:11 25 Jul 03

No, someone i know.

I asked him why that was on there, he used it.

Anyway he now knows it is spyware and removed it.

Not good for a buissness. uGGHHH...

Anyway. Thanks.

Maybe hot bar isnt blocked. :-(

well i can't even see a database.was thinking of spywareblaster when i said i can never be bothered to look at the database.any idea where it is? have tried looking in help

In what spybot?

It is in Info & License > Product info > Select from the menu at the top (the slightly larger one)

I got your e-mail, you can disable Active X, I have it set to high security, enabled active X scanner on AV and use spyware blockers.

But hot bar still gets through, just blocked it in Firewall.
