    ..."Okay, i'm using win 2k professional, it's my roommate's computer, it's a few years old...

    i keep getting the winfixer/look2me, virtual bouncer, rebate retreiver, coolwebsearch, ezula, and AdDestroyer,Media Access, Select CashBack --- - all keep coming back no matter what i freakin do.

    i've ran spybot, ad-aware, cwshredder, ewido, antivir (avg won't install), cccleaner, and deleted anything i found that was obvious out of hijack this.... here is the current scan.... THANK YOU SO MUCH for your help! ... 8 forum pages later, they're still pulling out their hair trying to get rid of these BHO's and the computer virus re-installs.

    After raking in millions of commission thefts, while riding under ABW radar, we now find our favorite LS merchants involved up to their eyeballs in a BHO refusing to play by any rules.... http://www.personalmoneytree.com/merchants.html

    LinkShare is always ahead of CJ at outing these fools. CJ tells us they are giving them a chance to clean up their act.
    Makes me wonder who the fools really are.

    PersonalMoneyTree adds an overlay to text of Web sites you visit by scanning the Web Page, and marks on top of those pages words and/or phrases for which there are associated Web sites, and creates active links to such sites.

    Good job LinkShare. Thanks Chris.

    LINKSHARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NICE MOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (anyone confirm this news?)

    And I wish "terminate" meant they were behind bars. LinkShare's reported action should ring alarm bells at the FTC!

    Rebirth of the original commission stealing BHO application ...TOPTEXT... with some new twists. Chris sure jumped on getting the news out on this CJ endorsed theftware operator. At least Linkshare jumped to protect their group of merchants from this double dipping wank outfit.

    Now we have to notify our objections to Download.com ZDNet -Cnet for allowing a hidden bundle of Spyware/Adware from being pushed on their traffic. I think they banned this in the new TOS for download applications. Can we say pressure from Spitzer and the FTC.

    I guess they found out that money doesn't grow on trees after all. Good move on the part of LS - guess it's a start in the right direction.

    Linkshare should kick SAHS to the curb as the most worthless scam in their stable. They are in no way merchants and practice every sleaze-bag trick in the book as an Adwhore run BHO. I wish their catalog merchants would class action sue the Belarco affiliate operation for defaming their good names with consumers. Fire there conniving AMs would be the first step, and spin it off as they didn't know they were trashing millions of consumers systems.

    Thanks LS, it's nice to know there's one less thief in your network...one down, many more to go! Get to it!! Try running a clean, honest, ethical network FOR A CHANGE!!!

    CJ: How long will it be before you run a clean network?

    Wouldn't it be cool if the networks started competing on which network was the most HONEST... in order to gain more affiliates.. That would be really nice..! They would be outing all these dirtbags ASAP...

    I can't believe I am saying this but here goes...

    NICE WORK LINKSHARE...!

    Linkshare could gain some points with affiliates by booting SAHS out of merchant/affiliate pool. Debunking ShopAtHomeSelect by Ben Edelman, August 11, 2005.

    No need to have these Belarco run commission thieves ruining another Holiday Shopping Season.
