Question about HP Computers & Internet
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 startup at the top
look for IMStart C:/PROGRA~1/INTER...INTER Startup
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
Look for the file for Intermute
empty your recycle bin and empty that
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.
thenit should be ok

Be carefull. They are playing like they have the ideas to help you but in fact they are fishing for business much more expensive than your normal GEEK.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

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'
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.
