What browser are you using sooty16?

If using IE -

This is a browser extension called "I want this" In Explorer, go to tools, manage add ons, toolbars and extentions and disable the "I want this" extension.

In Google chrome click on the spanner icon,top right of page go to tools and go through the same process.After you have done this restart your browser and it should be gone. Then go to your control panel and remove/un-install the program " I Want This"

Manually uninstalling a plugin If you can't use an uninstaller program to remove a plugin, you can remove it manually: 1.In the Location bar, type about:config and press EnterReturn. ?The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page. 2.Search for the preference: plugin.exposefullpath. 3.Double-click on the plugin.exposefullpath preference in the list to change the value to true. 4.Enter about:plugins into the Location bar to display the About Plugins page. 5.Each entry in the About Plugins page will have "File name:" followed by a path. Use Windows Explorer to navigateNavigate to the folder shown for the plugin you want to remove. 6.Rename the file to something other than its normal name - e.g. npswf32 becomes Xnpswf32 7.Double-click on the plugin.exposefullpath preference in the list on the about:config page to change the value back to false to avoid exposing the plugin path to websites. The plugin will be removed.

I have the Same Enhanced text Issue...No matter what i do its always there, In Firefox or Google or IE, I cant find any add-on that has any releveance to such a thing so i cant disable it.

Ive tried the advice showing above, but after step 4 there is no relevance to what information my PC shows..

Is there a nice, relatively simple way to end these pop ups from Enhanced Text..their own site opt out option is a load of Bull as it makes no difference.

This things driving me mental...its spoils almost all my favourite web pages and sites...
