When I purchased my new XP it came with many unwanted programs also,including Norton,I believe I read somewhere its called crudeware.
What is your OS?
Try start>all programs>GetVonage>there should be an uninstaller.try this for each unwanted program.
I seem to have a lot of installed programs on this HP computer that I have recently purchased. Programs like Easy Internet Services, EBay, GetVonage, Rhapsody..anyway you get the picture. They are all displayed on my desktop with the properties of type-shortcuts, folder path- c\users\public\public desktop. What makes me a little curious is under security when I click on the properties for these programs there is a check mark allowing permissions for system, full control modify, read and execute, read, and write. I don't want these programs on my system, I don't even want to use them. How do I safely delete them? When I checked Add/Remove installed programs they wern't even listed. I presume I just can't delete them off my desktop and they will no longer exist. Nothing could be that easy...could it? LOL..Thanks..Liz
