Intermute recurring pop up

Each time I boot up a pop up appears suggesting that I install Intermute Web Privacy & Protection Suite. I know absolutely nothing about Intermute and have not requested anything from them. The pop up offers three options - "click here to install", "remind later" and "don't remind". I click "don't remind each time the pop up appears but it still comes up with each boot up. How can I get rid of it. I am not very computer savvy so would appreciate a detailed reply in laymans terms.

Thank you in advance.

Click run
msconfig
click startup at the top
look for IMStart C:/PROGRA~1/INTER...INTER Startup
Uncheck this
Push OK
Restart computer
When it restarts you will get a pop up telling you that you have been in the start up menu.
put a check in the spot for one and close or it will continue to pop up when you restart your computer

Next go to C
then programs
Look for the file for Intermute
Delete it
empty your recycle bin and empty that
Restart
It worked for me but it's a nasty one to get rid of.
I'm not a tech but I'm real good at using Google to fix my own problems
Now I just did fix that problem after 2 days and hopefully it's not one of those that hides in the bowels of the computer and comes back

DO START, run, and type "msconfig" without the quotes.
access the startup tab and uncheck the intermute's related ones.
check also in start,program, startup, if there is something related, delete it.

I cannot access my account as it is asking for k9 password


You Have k9 installed and it is blocking your acess to your router page
here's how to disable it


To disable K9 Web Protection, follow these steps:

1. Download the K9 Web Protection Installer for your system (64bit, or 32bit)

2. Let it download, and instead of clicking "Run" Click "Save" and save it to a location of your choosing.

3. Right click your "My Computer" icon, then click "Properties". When that window opens up click on the "Hardware" tab, then click "Device Manager" when the next window opens.

4. Click the "View" tab at the top of the Device Manager, then click "Show Hidden Devices".

5. Then look for "Non-Plug and Play Drivers" and open up that tree. Then find the device called, "bckd". Right click it, and then click "Disable"

6. A message will pop up telling you to reboot your PC, do so.

7. After it boots up, there should be a message down in the right corner saying "K9 Web Protection has become Corrupted" or something similar. This is good :).

8. Before you can surf the internet, go to wherever you saved the K9 Installer from steps 1 and 2, and run the installer.

9. It should just pop up with a message asking you to update K9 web protection, click "Yes" and for the next message that pops up, click "Ok"

10. Wait a little bit, and then you can go to any Website and acess your router page


11. To re-enable K9 Web Protection, just go back to the device manager and re-enable "bckd".

Acer 4520 Booting Problem.


i would suggest to uninstall and reinstall the drivers of your network adapter, or it would be best if you install the latest drivers for it. no need to format the HD.
if you feel that formating is needed, it would also work but that takes a lot of work.

hope this helps. :)

From your cryptic description, and the extremely limited details given. It sounds like you may have some spyware installed on your computer. If you have an anti-spyware program installed make sure it is NOT listed on 'The Spyware Warrior List of 
Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites'
http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm

Those are "anti-spyware programs" that install their OWN spyware, while 'supposedly' removing everything else.

Use instead "Ad-Aware 2007", "Spybot - Search & Destroy" "SpywareBlaster" are three good ones. Beware of imitations and name similarities. install and update then run them weekly.

Then stay OFF of Weird and Strange websites!  ;>)

Install McAfee SiteAdvisor.
