Hi -_R1_-...

Is it Internet Explorer you are talking about, you really DO need it. Without IE you will be unable to get updates and it is very tightly integrated to the operating system so it may cause any number of problems there.

If it's the pop-ups you want to get rid of, a trip through our Malware Forum might bring some relief. There are also pop-up stoppers built into some browsers, but I'd go for the cure rather than the cover-up.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself...then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Be patient, the Malware Forum is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual. DO NOT REPLY TO OR BUMP YOUR OWN LOG. If it shows a reply it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

You want to kill Iexplore?
If you don't need updates, I'll just tell you how to kill IE...

Open notepad.
Paste in this stuff.

Removed registry hack.

Save it as "about.reg" and open it again. If the registry asks you to add this to the register, answer "Yes".
If it opens in notepad, right-click the file and select "Open with...". Then click on Browse and go to C:/Windows/regedit

The pop-ups use the "About:" function most of the times... With this registry hack, you won't have problems with that kind of pop-ups.

Removed unnecessary comment.

IO-error...

We don't use "registry hacks" here...particularly when they are used to "cover up" a problem. The hack you posted would do nothing but allow the infection to run unchecked while hiding symptoms from those who try to help with the problem.

We treat our members with repect at Geeks to Go. Please...if you have nothing constructive to add to a topic, kindly refrain from replying to it.

Please proceed with my suggestion to let our Malware Experts help you with this issue. I think you'll find their solution far superior to a questionable registry hack. :whistling:
