How do you remove permanently the lop toolbar from lop.com?

by ftballpack / December 15, 2004 6:00 AM PST

I have got this lop.com toolbar on my computer at home and can't remove it. I have tried ad-aware and spybots search and destroy and can't remove it. I have since installed the spywareblaster to stop anymore like toolbars from being installed. I have no idea how to remove it permanently. It has somehow intigrated itself into internet explorer and everytime i restart the computer it comes back. I have a computer running windows xp with the newest updates to the norton anti-virus and a slightly outdated version of norton internet security. I have the most current updates from microsoft's windows update page.

You can try their uninstaller but you need to remove

an application that is bundled with it! Example: Messenger Plus 3 <-- this software is bundled with 3rd party application that is known as spyware. If you have this program, uninstall it via Add/Remove Programs then reboot normally.

Run the lop uninstaller:

Download and use the following uninstallers:
http://lop.com/new_uninstall.exe
http://lop.com/toolbar_uninstall.exe

You should also download LSPfix from http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm
Use LSPFix if you will lost your internet connection after removing LOP.

uninstall lop with XP security settings?
by hool / January 24, 2005 7:20 AM PST

Hi. I was hoping you could help. I have Win XP and each time I try and load the LOP uninstall page, my computer brings up a yellow exclamation point in a blue windows box that says my current security settings do not allow me to run program.... Could you help? I'm desperate to uninstall this cursed LOP!

LOP Toolbar XP Uninstall (figured it out)
by hool / February 17, 2005 8:40 AM PST

After a while, I figured out my conundrum with the security settings. (The most complex problems always have the simplest solutions).
Under Internet Options/ Security/ Restricted Sites, I found *.lop.com.... I removed it from this list and was able to run the LOP uninstaller from their website .

http://66.220.17.154/search/search.cgi?s=games&src=bookmarks


How LOP came to be in this list of restricted sites, I'm unsure, it was just there somehow. Anyways, simple as it was, I'm posting my experience to save someone else the aggravation. I should send this to LOP as well to save them having to answer all of my nasty emails. Wink

LOP and companies like it should be illegal. They poison the Internet.

Glad you found it Hool and thanks for

the feedback. SpywareBlaster has it in their restricted sites if you have that and possibly Spybot does too but I didn't check that. I don't know if you have either of those tools but that might be why that website is in there if you DO have them. If you DON'T have them, I'll supply links for you if you'd like, they are both free.

E-mail me

k, I have been fighting with lop for a long time too, and neither of my computer genius brothers could figure out how to remove it, but I just figured it out, so I figured I should share my knowledge. If you still need help, e-mail me at fatlilchunk@hotmail.com
It's a confusing process, so I'd prefer to walk you through it step by step.
