New threats abound that require no action on the user to be installed if one uses IE or Outlook Express and has the preview pane enabled.
This is usually how a person learns about these new pests, parasites, spyware, web page or web search hijackers.
The 4 (free) tools I use to be sure the pests are found and removed are Adaware, Spybot, Cwshredder and Housecall.
when starting my computer (windowsME) i get a pop-up window stating the following (The shortcut ?My web search E-mail Plugin,ink? refers to a location that is unavailable. The location could be on a hard drive on this computer, on a network, or on a different computer an your home network. Check to be sure the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the Internet or home network. then try again.) I don't know if this keeps me from receiving any of my e-mail while the system is turned off but I have not gotten any e-mails for the pass two days. Is there a way I can fix the E-mail Plugin,ink file.
