WARNING this link is a monster. Does some one know how to block this B----, and how to delete it and how to pass it on to the gods of malware??

Hello boopme.

Your right, that link is a monster. Its best not to post links like that in a forum as our members can be unwittingly infected. If I did not have install on demand disabled I would have that malware on my computer.

Did your computer get infected?

Sorry, I tried to post it with a warning as it is a brute. Was hoping to alert others of this pig. Yes I'm infected and am working to remove it. I don't know how it first showed up but I clicked OK to close it instead of X by mistake, hence the misery. Not sure if it's the same yet but I've got "vundo" and I'm in process of ridding that via the 'BLEEPING COMP' guide for that.

I'll leave my blurb about install on demand for others to see. When I first went to that link, I had a security warning pop up about that download and if you have install on demand enabled its already too late at that point. Let me know if it is enabled on your computer if you will please.

For some reason Install on demand is enabled by default in Internet Explorer causing problems such as unauthorized downloads that install without your knowledge. To protect yourself against this situation do this:

In Internet Explorer go to Tools>Internet Options>Advanced and take the check mark from Enable Install On Demand (Internet Explorer) and Enable Install On Demand (Other). The consequence of this will be that you will begin to see Security Warnings when something tries to install on your computer. Unless it is something you want to install (which happens rarely) always say no.

No you want any instance of Install on Demand unchecked.
