Down load Hijackthis (http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=3155) and it will list a heap of settings. See if you can see it in the list, and you can then go there and change it or remove it.

Care is needed with this program.

What does this program actually do?

Its only 150Kb, but quote:-
HijackThis examines certain key areas of the Registry and Hard Drive and lists their contents. These are areas which are used by both legitimate programmers and hijackers. It's up to you to decide what should be removed. Some items are perfectly fine. You should not remove them. Never remove everything. Doing that could leave you with missing items needed to run legitimate programs and add-ins.
End quote
So it just lists settings..the decision is up to you.

Have a look at this tutorial (http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/htlogtutorial.html) to get a better idea.

well sounds easy to do but i dont really wanna do something like that if it has the possiblitly of stuffing up legimate programs uness its the only thing i can use and i could just do a sysrestore point before doing it...

Yes, just a bit of pressure at work at moment. When normality returns, I will drop you an e-mail. Till then, I know you will take care of it for me :D
