The pop up seems legit, and I use cleanup 2.0 here is a summary of 3.0, you have to be carful with this version. :>) Did you run MSconfig and see what was running? Have you come up in safemode to see if your explorer works? Internet Cleanup 3.0 ($29.99 list) deletes-and shreds-almost anything on your system that might reveal what you do. The software can eliminate your cookies, history, cache, and recent documents-even wipe out your entire C drive if you want. The product's most unusual feature is its ability to list and delete ActiveX controls and browser plug-ins. Statistics on these items and more display when you first launch the program (the delay caused by the necessary system scan might annoy impatient types). Version 3.0 works with AOL 7.0 and 8.0; Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01 and later; and MSN Explorer 6.0, 7.0, and 8.0. Users of Netscape, Opera, and other browsers must stick with version 2.0. We tested Internet Cleanup with IE 6. BrowserGuard, the most important addition to version 3.0, blocks banner ads, Web bugs, pop-ups, and cookies. Once you activate the feature, a button appears on the toolbar. Clicking this button opens a window that lists the blocked Web bugs and ads. If you're curious about what you're missing, you can highlight an item and click the Details button. A trace option will do a Whois lookup for you. -----Original Message----- From: Carl [mailto:ctm007@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Thursday, February 27, 2003 6:23 PM To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [pcductape] Re: Internet Explorer will not open Yes, I have lots of friends and most are on this list. :-) Carl ----- Original Message ----- From: Emery, David <mailto:demery@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Thursday, February 27, 2003 5:09 PM Subject: [pcductape] Re: Internet Explorer will not open Carl: I really think a new harddrive and installing 2000 is one of the last things to consider as this is going to be a lot of work for you. Need your cd or borrow one from a friend. You must have a friend don't you! :>) > -----Original Message----- > From: Carl [mailto:ctm007@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx] > Sent: Thursday, February 27, 2003 6:03 PM > To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> > Subject: [pcductape] Re: Internet Explorer will not open > > << Message: >> << File: 2-27-03 5pm ie6 error.jpg >> To unsubscribe from this list send an email to pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface.
