    hijacks microsoft.com, Dam this should be illegal, and why allow such software to hijack keywords and trademarked terms and even URLS!

    you can't even uninstall it in control panel, and it even redirect pages on there website. so If you try to login to cj you get a error 404 page on there site. totally messed up.

    Jason,

    Are you still able to click on the search results from the Google or Yahoo returns and get to where you are supposed to?

    I didn't understand about the CJ login. Could you explain what happened with that?

    BLFH (Ms. B) I haven't click on the search results, so I'm not sure on that. I will install it again and see what else I can find. Also basically when I had comet system installed, I went to the following URL:

    http://members.cj.com/member/foundation/login.jsp

    And tryed to login in. It wouldn't login me in and redirected to a Error 404 page on http://www.starware.com, SAying I was unable to login to cj but this page (404) came directly from http://www.starware.com, Seems very wierd. So basically you may not even be able to login to cj if you have comet systems toolbar installed. I will do more testing later and will post more screenshots...
