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.
thenit should be ok

Pop up ads


Internet pop-ups can be an annoyance. These windows are usually associated with different forms of advertisements and at times can include viruses that can infect the computer. Pop-ups do not have to be a part of computer use if the user does not desire this distraction. There are ways to stop pop-ups and prevent them from appearing unless desired. Pop-up blocker allows the user to block these items and select which items to allow.

Open Internet Explorer. Click "Tools" from the menu bar. Tools can be found on the bar that lists "File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help" directly beneath the address bar. Click "Internet Options" from the "Tools" menu. Click the "Privacy" tab in the "Internet Options" box. Click to check the box that says "Turn on pop-up blocker" in the "Pop-up Blocker" section of the menu. Click "Apply" to save changes. Click "OK" to close the "Internet Options" box. The computer will now block all pop-ups from websites. If downloading items from the Web, the computer will ask whether you would like to allow these items to be opened.

I am using Internet Explorer 8 and just recently, Windows Installer pops up only on random web pages that I open. I just click cancel and it finally goes away. I have Windows XP. Any suggestions?


You are getting this popup because of old or out-dated Windows installer program in your PC.

There are 2 solutions to get rid of this issue.

Solution 1

1. Click "Start" and click Run
In the Small window type "msiexec /unregister" ( without quotes ), then press "Enter" or Press OK. You will not see anything happen during this process.

Again

2. Click "Start" and click Run
In the Small window type "msiexec /regserver" (Without Quotes) then press "Enter" or Press OK button. You will not see anything happen during this process.

And then,

2. Click "Start" and click Run
In the Small window type "Services.msc" ( without Quotes ) and hit Enter key or Press OK.
Search for Windows Installer in the list. Double click and open the Windows Installer and under Start Type " Select Automatic " and click Apply and Click OK. Close the window

Now you can try to access Internet Explorer. If you still get the pop up message, You will have to Download and install the latest Windows Installer program from Microsoft Website

Windows Installer Download

Choose WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe - 3.2MB from the list to download and then install.
When you click on download button, It will prompt you to save or Run. Click Run.

Install and later restart the PC.

Ron

My google chrome has downloaded but it says an error 0 x 80040204 i downloaded the file abot 4 times and still the same error pops up


If you have AVG virus software installed on your computer, try temporarily disabling AVG Resident Shield, AVG Link Scanner, and AVG Web Shield and then try to install Chrome.
If you don't have AVG installed, then try disabling whatever virus protection you are using and then try installing Chrome.

I have virus scan running but cannot fully download the updated Internet Security Suite although I have already subscribed to this,although this was not necessary because I already pay to Mcafee Virus...


You might have a program(s) that are conflicting with your virus protection or have a virus already! In my experience with virus stuff, I would consider reformatting. Doing a clean install of the computer and uninstalling ALL virus protection that might be stuck in it with the factory settings and then finally installing the one that you want.
And if you want my advice for which is a great virus protection program- I'd suggest Avast. It's free and incredible with protection, plus it's not a resource hog and will free some up for you so you can run your computer faster.
But I'm not an expert so if anyone else may have a better solution- go for it. :D

Norton 360 has the entire norton protection suite built into it. On top of the firewall, phishing protection, and e-mail protection it also has norton antivirus built right into it. So yes, you have to uninstall antivirus to install 360, but 360 just installs antivirus again. If you ever decide to go back to using just antivirus you can simply redownload it off their web site.

Error#: 0x80040e37 Spysubtract


We didn't have the IMDATUpd.exe in the directory, so we couldn't run it to update the application. The fix for this is to download the new version and run the installer. Make sure you enter the same email address that you used to register. This should solve your problem, it solved ours.
