Hi,
Seems to me that I've run malware removal tools  such as spybot and adaware  and I could swear that STOP SIGN, which claims to be a virus removal tool, was listed as malware that causes pop-ups, machine malfunctions and other things.  I wasd just shocked to see a commercial ON TV for e-acceleration STOP SIGN:;  which i have actually removed from people's computers because it causes problems and will not uninstall (by the average user). It has to be dug out of the registry and there's like 3 pages of entries to be removed....  False advertisement on the internet is one thing(that not much can be done about unfortunately) but if they're trying to get you to load spyware from the tv...   what do you think??

Actually, I don't have stop sign on any of my machines to run ht- perhaps I will set up an old drive and do just that. However, my question may just be a matter of wanting an opinion rather than actually needing help. Perhaps I  would have better luck with feedback if posted in a more appropriate forum type- or perhaps I could increase the points offered and split points??
