Default xupiter tool bar???


Ok I run pop-up stopper whenever I read this board and there is one little @#%$ that still gets through.

It installed a xupiter toolbar?? on my computer. It does not ask me if I want to install the GD thing it just does without my knowing!

Now it keeps trying to install itself and says you already have the newest version! It also ressets my home page to xupiter.com or whatever the @#%$ it is.

HOW CAN I STOP THIS STUPID @#%$ AD FROM INSTALLING IT'S STUPID LITTLE TOOLBAR!!

at the bottom of the page there is a customer service link, there are directions to uninstall it there.

Actually, their link to uninstall it didn't remove it completely. I had to write a nasty email to the company to get some assistance removing it. But even THAT didn't remove it completely, if I do a search that fails, the "404 (or whatever) page not found is a Xupiter page).

I am not pleased with Xupiter so I don't understand why they think annoying so many people is good business. If they were the only company selling water in a desert, I'd keep walking until I found someone else.

This thing tried to install when I went to Alhakazam's and when I hit No, the web site closed as well. Annoying.

things that install themselves like that is rather invasive. Too bad i dont have the money to take it to court. I bet you could get a ruling saying that companies can not do that.

Can we confirm that xupiter is comming from the pop-ups of this board?

I visit allakhazaams often also and someone else mentioned that they got it there. It really is a pain in my arse I would like to avoid the possible places of infection. Yes infection that thing is like a @#%$ disease you can't get rid of it!

I think we need to write a letter of petition to this company who's head is obviously stuck so far up it's ass that they are suffering from depravation of oxygen and doing idiotic things.

Is it even legal to install things on someone's computer without consent?? What they are doing seems very illegal to me and even if it isn't I still wanna kick ass.

Those fuckwads need to stay the hell away from my toolbar!

This has pissed me off. I got it from HERE. At WORK where we aren't allowed to install 3rd party software. It installed itself without asking permission, then opened up their site which included porn, which can get me fired. I tried to remove it, but if you do a search for xupiter on your computer, there's a file you dont have rights to. So you cant delete it. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen.
