Post Are You being watched?

Ever downloaded either audiogalaxy or bearshare? then you have picked up a third party software called webHancer. This software cannot be removed from your system, without stripping your ability to view web pages. You can still connect to the internet, but you cant see anything. Furthermore, it monitors all user activity from your desktop, and sends info back to whoever is using the software.
see link: http://www.internetweek.com/reviews01/rev043001-4.htm

I would advise doing a find file on your pc for the words "webhancer" on your computer to see if you have this software installed, then contact http://www.webhancer.com , and report the issue.

They tell you in their faq that Ad-Aware will uninstall their product wrong and mess up your connection. Then they tell you that you need to go to add/remove programs (where it doesn't show up).

I just used Ad-Aware (the link karen posted) and it worked fine.

Damn audiogalaxy.

Whoo Hooo! I'm clean, well from webhancer anyway.

That's just a dirty bit of trickery, we should get our own stuff and use it to spy one them. Then we can have them all fired for watching porn while they're at work

MWAAHAAAHHAAAAHAAAA *evil grin*
