CNet CatchUp

by Susan B. / January 21, 2004 12:57 AM PST

Hello,
I have Windows Me with Internet Explorer 5.5 patches and fixes included.
I have been hanging around this forum for some time and there is lots of good stuff here as well as GREAT Moderators and people who volunteer their time to help people like me.
Before this site changed over to it's new format, I had signed up for the "Catchup Service". This is no longer available but you offer Download.com instead.
How do I delete or uninstall the previous version? Is it as simple as just deleting the folders, or is there more to it?
Thanks in advance!
Susan

Susan,

I don't use the CatchUp service, but I believe there should be an Uninstall program for it. Try the Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs list first. And if it's not listed there, try the Start-Programs-Catchup menu, as there may be an uninstall link in that location as well.

Hope this helps.

I am currently gathering materials from old computer to put on new computer by transfering to a CD and have been trying to export Gator. They keep telling me to go to CNET CatchUp to get some program, download or something. I need HELP.

Peejays, Just A Suggestion....

....DON'T USE GATOR. It uses adware/spyware that can really cause problems on your machine. Here are just a couple of articles about it.:

If you're still insistant on using Gator, you'll need to reinstall it on the new computer as, like most programs, it's almost impossible to "export" only the important files to be replaced on a second computer. The download site can be found on Google.

Once again, I recommend you dump Gator, but it's your choice.

Hope this helps.
