    I installed a demo version of Internet cleanup, which was kind off annoying so I threw it away, but now I get a warning everytime I logg in saying:

    "Network SpyAlert protection Expired!
    The installed demonstration version of Internet Cleanup has expired
    To purchase the demo, run the Internet Cleanup application for details"

    How can I get rid of this message?!

    :confused:

    Is there anything you don't want in your startup items in system preferences?

    System Preferences>Accounts>Startup Items tab

    If so, remove it.

    Do you mean System/Library/StartupItems?

    I’m not really sure what is supposed to be there . . .

    The suspects in there are:
    AuthServer
    mDNSResponder
    RemoteDesktopAgent
    NetInfo
    KernelEventAgent
    BIND
    SecurityServer
    SNMP
    SystemTuning

    God, don't touch that...

    No, I mean your System Preferences.

    Apple Menu (top left)>System Preferences>Accounts>Startup Items tab

    If you find something called Internet Cleanup or similar then disable it.

    AS well as what BlueVelvet said, do a search via Finder (Command-f) for Internet Cleanup/InternetCleanup and delete any offending files that turn up.

    Oh, right . . .

    Stupidity combined with a OS in norwegian does not mix well!

    You were right. I’ve got it. Thank you!

    :eek:



    Up the Arsenal!

    Glad you got that sorted...


    You think the Gunners are going to get a result today?

    I suspect they are. Man Utd's form is not brilliant at the mo.

    As a Chelsea fan, I hope that it's 0-0...

    As a ManUtd fan, I'm sickened to see that I've been contributing to a post involving Arsenal/Chelsea fans :D
    Counting down the hours till the big match tonight...our form might not be brilliant but I've got confidence in the big matches! :)

    Chelski?!

    As long as mufc doesn’t win I’ll be happy. Maybe we can even avoid any red cards this time . . .

    Thanks for the help guys!


    :D

    You win some, you draw some
