McAfee alterted me to it, said it had changed and wanted web access - denied
Audrey It uses system resources and slows the system down. To the best of my knowledge, it is impossible to remove. I have followed the instructions on all the websites, and it just comes back. It comes as a package deal with websearch toolbar (the sneaky one that gets you to install by telling you need an upgrade, and there is no way to say no. Another file that is associated with this is ibis. All of these files seem to hide somewhere in the system, and no matter how you try to remove it, it comes back. Solution, use msconfig and uncheck in startup.
