every so often my IE opens with this page, it does it by itself and i've tried several online methods to get rid of it but it just keeps coming back. This is the actual address: http://store.trendmi...690&HEIGHT=480. could someone please help me figure out how to get rid of it or acquire a clean version of IE so I don't have it popping up any more?

Then open ccleaner hit the tools button then startup second one down below uninstall then in the bottom right hand corner of ccleaner hit save to text file.Save it to your desktop and post the startup.txt here in your next reply.


Hit the start button in lower left hand corner. Then in the run box type msconfig, then hit the services tab then put a check mark in hide microsoft services what is listed there,after hiding microsoft services?Please post back to us in a vertical list.

Please download MINITOOLBOX When the box opens click save file, save it to the desktop and run it.

Am currently using threatfire. I did try using the trend micro one but IE still kept popping up with that purchase request I finally got so annoyed i deactivated IE. but some sites require it over google chrome so I need to be able to use it w/o that stupid purchase demand. I don't know how to do a vertical list, do i need a special program for that?Attached File  startup.txt   5.5KB   33 downloads

As far as the vertical list,you will need to manually type out all non microsoft services.Or post a screen shot.

You have
SpySubtract
installed.


That was anti-spyware now owned but not marketed under that title - by Trend Micro.

Have you recently recovered the system from a partition or early image
Previously, SpySubtracter was often pre-installed on new desktop and notebook computers

That is VERY likely the cause of the problem.
That all said, you have many other programs that I would recommend you uninstall.

Chameleon Startup Manager is ONE example.
They may sound good, they may look good, and kit is easy to see why people think they are good, but in essence they simply add to the clutter and do little if anything that cannot be done within Windows and IE - without any of the attendant risks, freqently involved in these programs.

If that sounds harsh, I apologise and of course it is your decision, but the more of these sort of utilities you run the more to go wrong.
YOUR Pando service booster is another example.

No, haven't done any recoveries. I can remove the spysub and possibly the chameleon but I use Pando. is there a way to use pando w/o the booster? I've tried everything else mentioned here and it's still popping up when it feels like it.

Thank you for the update.
Although all the work was done by my colleague rockmilk.
I simply knew that SpySubtract being an early verson of what is now part of Trend Micro does sometimes cause this.
If INDEED that was the cause.
