Please sign the petition online that will be sent to netflix, one of the largest customers of casale media. If we can eliminate casale media's income we can kill them off forever. http://www.petitiononline.com/12ntflx/petition.html

Bump, any other replys
by Strykerecho / August 7, 2008 6:12 AM PDT

The suggestions listed do not work.

Is there a program or a popup killer someone suggest that may fix this.

Can someone write a program and make a few million bucks to kill these annoying ******* popups or can we form a class-action lawsuit against these ********?

I think I am going down to the courthouse and filing a zillion dollar lawsuit against these companies. Whose with me hooooooooooooooooo!!!

Have You Checked That There

In reply to: Bump, any other replys

is no Casalmedia items listed in you Add/Delete programs list?
Depending on your OS/Browsers/& other info needed as in RED above post page, you may need to also empty all temp(*) files & clean out existing CM cookies in your browser(s). Also: Do you have ANY toolbars installed?
These can be an easy entrance path for these problems.

CCleaner makes this easy & it's a free download. It will let you designate to keep "some" cookies that you KNOW for fact are not infected but delete the rest. Get the NON-Toolbar version!

Instr. from Donna:

"First, remove the temporary files so the scanner need not to scan unwanted files:

Get CCleaner from http://www.ccleaner.com/download/builds
Scroll down the page then select to download the "Slim with no toolbar".
Install the program then clean-up the system. The default settings is OK to use and when you're ready to be familiar with it, check the settings to configure it the way you want it to clean or follow the suggested settings below before using CCleaner:

NOTE: You don't have to run the Registry clean-up using CCleaner. It's not necessary.

Suggested settings for CCleaner:
Open CCleaner>In Windows tab, locate "System" then Uncheck "Memory Dumps, Windows Log Files" under
click Options>Advanced>Uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours"
Still in Advanced section>Check the box before "Save all settings to INI file"
Click on "Run Cleaner" button on the bottom right side of the program."

Note that many programs are specific to one group or another of OS & SP versions with MBAM etc. usually requiring WIN XP or above. You don't say what yours is!! ALSO: Who's your ISP? Good Luck!! Happy
