Hi,

I see the Matchmaker toolbar installed here. Can you provide me more information where you downloaded it?
Also, Go to this page.
Enter the url of this thread in the first field.
Where it says, browse to the file that you want to submit, click the browse button next to it and browse to next file:

C:\PROGRA~1\MATCHM~1\MATCHM~1.DLL

(most probably it will be called C:\Program Files\Matchmaker\Matchmaker.dll

Select it and click ok:
Then click the Send File button below.

If this is indeed a vmnet toolbar (which won't suprise me), then this toolbar is the cause of your redirects.

In anyway, please upload that file and also tell me where exactly you have downloaded it - because this is important info so I can add it to the database. Thanks.

Hi,

Can you also upload the file as requested please? Because, if I want that toolbar, I have to register at matchmaker - and I don't really want to do that. :thumbsup:

Hi,

No need to upload it anymore. I managed to get the file anyway and it's indeed the cause of your redirections, since it's a VMN.net toolbar:
http://toolbar.vmn.net/en/privacy.php

So the choice is yours here. If you don't want these redirects anymore and don't want that this toolbar collects your personal info, than you should uninstall it.

Hi,

No need to complain, because it is clearly stated in their Privacy Policy - That's why you should always read the Privacy policy if you install software :thumbsup:
