    my opinion here, and maybe others, Just wanted to say I got infected with ncase about 12 times, no drive by warnings, no files downloaded or installed. Ncase infects computers auomatically though the browser too. I never download anything except datafeeds from merchants. So why did I get infected with this 12 times. Can anyone answer this. It's impossible to remove if you are new to this issue :0). okay I would like to ask" 1 800 solutions! "how did ncase get installed on my computer? without no warnings of any kind??? not only that but my computer crashed several times... messing with my web brower, opening pages without me opening them. really starting to piss me off. luckily I'm get a new computer built soon!

    freedom, it's not freedom till you build a business model where you can leave and the commissions will still be there. :0).

    Merchants! As long as you are partnered with parasiteware you will not be listed on my site.

    Go to the doxdesk site. Andrew has a manual method of removal there. Follow instructions carefully when messing with the registry.

    http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/nCase.html

    It usually comes with its own reinstaller so unless you remove that too, it will keep turning up.

    Can't blame 1-800. They've been declared "in compliance." (Ha!)

    Do you have your ActiveX set to prompt instead
    of enable? Most drive by downloads are done
    through ActiveX.

    If consumers and web surfers were actually given a choice as to whether to download/install 180Solutions/n-case only their own staff would be infested.

    THE NETWORKS ARE THE LAUGHING STOCK OF THE LEGAL COMMUNITY WHEN PUSHING THIS PIECE OF ADWHORE CRAP AS A USER CHOICE COPOUT!

    The networks are 100% bogus if ANY S/W affiliate is allowed to earn a dime if caught using hidden bundling and drive-by installs....period. May all the millions of victims infected by 180Solutions/n-case take a dump on your corporate doorsteps and ring the doorbell. That also is a real users choice.

    Why are you still using Internet Explorer.

    IE is THE VECTOR for this crap.

    Stop using IE, or stop complaining.

    There is some good news.

    Microsoft deactivates ActiveX, should stop some
    of the drive-by downloads.

    I do have ActiveX set to prompt instead of enable but, what I don't understand is why specially here on ABW sometimes I get the prompt since I always say no and still get the page displayed.

    I must be going mad
    I'm certain I used to be able to see somewhere on my computer where I could enable or disable or prompt the active X, for the life of me I cannot find it now. I've just been looking in "Tools, Internet Options, Advanced" and can find no mention of active x. would someone please tell me where I can find it?

    thanks in advance

    On Internet Explorer:
    Tools
    Internet Options
    Security
    Custom
    Custom settings

    Custom Level

    -----
    In the Custom Level, is where I set to prompt the active X

    On my computer I go to Tools, Internet Options
    and then Security. Click on the button for
    custom settings, there will be about four places
    where it asks about ActiveX, I don't change the ones
    set on disable, the ones set to enable I change
    to prompt.

    I think ABW must be using some script on this
    Parasite Ware forum, probably checking to see
    if our computers have spyware. That is why you
    get the prompt, you can say no and the page will
    still display, the ActiveX script just won't
    work. I almost always say no whenever I get
    the ActiveX prompt, unless it is a site I can
    really trust.

    I would like to see Todd respond to this thread and tell us how they are in compliance, again!

    Jason, you bad boy! Why are you choosing to install this trash on your computer? Shame on you!

    You MUST be doing it. CJ says they are in compliance so it HAS to be YOU, don'tcha know. You WANTED it!

    Oh! I get it. Hidden drive by installs MUST meet the terms of compliance for CJ. Some terms of compliance they got there.

    Oh well, just buy a new computer every time you get one of these programs. Doesn't everybody?

    I would have no clue how to ever FIND my registry and would be scared to death to touch the dang thing if I did find it. My computer would probably blow up.

    Mr.Merchant, if you do business in any way what-so-ever with parasites, your products will not be sold on my sites!!

    I had a similar experience as Jason - a spyware nightmare!

    I had as many as five to six spyware programs (spyware seems to travel in herds) just on one drive-by install without my permission.

    I even tried disconnecting the computer from the Internet. Still got pop-ups even when Internet Explorer was not active. Could not uninstall the spyware. Our family could not even use the computer because the pop-ups kicked us out of the programs we were using with constant freeze-ups of Windows.

    Used "SpyBot Search and Destroy" and even that didn't work. All the spyware just reinstalled itself without my permission.

    One spyware searchbar that constantly reinstalled itself even called itself the "Google" searchbar when I tried to select Google's searchbar to disable the popups! When I tried a search on the disguised Google searchbar, the spyware would do a quick redirect and add their own search results to the Google search results. Very clever!

    Finally bought a new hard drive and did a fresh reinstall of Windows XP. This was truly a spyware nightmare!

    The computer is now completely isolated from the Internet and is only used as a standalone PC. Luckily this PC is not used for any type of Internet research and web site production. No more spyware!

    It's scary. I build my own PCs from scratch. Been creating web sites since 1997. Taught Internet classes and still I can't delete the spyware or rescue my own computer from spyware. I can only imagine how novice/casual Internet users deal with spyware.

    I've been hit by a few that Spybot couldn't remove. This computer I'm on now was used in the CAD department of a client and when they gave it to me it was infected with so many parasites I had to scroll through page after page of Spybot results. But there were some that I had to track down via Google for removal instructions.

    If you follow the instructions to the letter, there shouldn't be a problem fiddling with the registry. Often, this is the only way to rid yourself of the reinstaller funcions. Go ahead & rewrite your registry. Why should the scumlords have all the fun?

    Uh, sure I will. Do it any day now. But,......uh what the heck is a registry and how would you rewrite one?

    Last thing I knew about any registry it had something to do with wedding gifts and that was back in '63.

    The registry is a small set of files containing complicated critical setting info. It's a good idea to never touch this info unless necessary. Such as when one of the "In Compliance" merchants, with your full permission and knowlege, installs software that if removed, reinstalls itself each time you reboot.

    This is why - over the long term - the cost of ownership of having a Windows machine is A LOT higher than going out, paying a little extra for a Mac, and then just sitting down and using your computer without all the worry of parasites and viruses.
