Hi there,

I visited that site and noticed they have a toolbar available, did you check in "Manage Add Ons" under the "Programs" tab?

Also, you might be able to add that site to your "Blocked Sites" list under the "Privacy" tab.

If you have Spybot, you can block it there to, and you can also check to see if it has been changed there to.

Do you use a file manager of any kind? Or another Desktop Search other than your OS default?

I have been using Free Commander, and so far Im satisfied with it. It might be able to locate the file.

You might try searching this: 192.168.0.2

This is the IP address for that sites home page, maybe that might come up in the search results.

thats all I can think of off the top of my head, hope this helps!!

nosnhol#3 that is an internal LAN address. I think you may have copied the wrong IP.

I went there in IE and it locked up on me (probably one of the anti-spyware precautions on my system.

My research shows ActiveShopper as being spyware - and it's identified by this key in HiJack This:
