    ARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!

    I keep getting this whistlesoftware bullshit loading itself and installing a browser toolbar onto IE6. I've also noticed more popups than usual which I think it has something to do with.. Everytime it loads itself, I remove it, remove the registry keys(all of them..) and it still manages to load itself.. I use adaware6 Pro, hijackthis, and spybot search and destroy to kill everything having to do with whistlesoftware, but lo and behold I wake up in the morning, start IE6 and there it is!! I fucking hate this!!! and short of taking a gun, finding out where the company is located and shooting the programers, does anyone have any suggestions as to keep this thing from loading again? thanks!

    Yeah, I had seen that before, I went back through the registry and found some stuff I missed before, that pest patrol seems to work pretty well. Thanks for the help.

    I would use another browser, but I'm sort of set in my ways, and I'm too used to IE...

    Glad I could help.
    I knew it wasn't "inconceivable"
