GUEST,Willie-O Tech: Can this be fixed without a technician? (28) RE: BS: Can this be fixed without a technician? 15 Feb 05


One of the random messages that sometimes appears at the top of the forum specifies that recent Mudcat reliability problems are related to the "funwebproducts" infection. Symptoms are constant popups relating to "smileycentral.com", "protect your computer from viruses" come-ones, and non-stop appearance of the "work offline/try again" dialogue box if you try to run your PC without being online. There are a few links mentioned but none of them has an authoritative cure.

This has been infecting my laptop since last fall and I haven't been able to remove it. I've updated and used Spybot, Ad-Aware SE and HijackThis, plus gone through some registry editing procedures.

Anyone been able to successfully completely remove this extremely malignant beastie? And by=the-by, in what way would this affect Mudcat at the server end?

W-O
