I'm attempting to help out a friend who can't access the internet or open Windows Explorer, Control Panel, My Computer or much of anything else since she installed Yahoo's popup blocker. I've searched but can't find any way to uninstall it manually. She's running XP and has tried system restore 4 times. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks for the welcome. She couldn't get online so she couldn't get to the Microsoft site but I sent her HijackThis and she was able to identify the problem and get it fixed. I appreciate the help. :thumbsup:

Hey volrick, I strongly suggest you get her to send in a HijackThis log. The new nasty stuff out there tricks you into thinking it's gone and then boom it's back with a vengeance. It's hard to get rid of, even if you know what you are doing--we're always having to figure it out cause they change so much.

The thing about people

is they change
