I was checking out a website and got some of the usual pop-up annoyances, although this time was different :eek: . One of the pop-ups actually installed a new toolbar on my IE, change my home page setting, and any 404 errors now result in a redirect to this page.
The site is www.xupiter.com. There is a new directory on my disk, C:\program files\xupiter, containing various junk including XupiterStartup.exe and XupiterToolbar.exe. There is no listing for xupiter when I try to uninstall it using the Add/Remove Programs option in Control Panel.
I went into the IE toolbar and unchecked the xupiter toolbar so it doesn’t display. But it is still there, I don’t know how to remove it from the toolbar menu. I changed back my home page, no problem.
What I am really concerned about is what else this stuff did that might not be so visible. It does not appear to be viral, just unethically aggressive commercial crapware.
