    I use my Hosts file works great

    Go to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

    Copy the hosts file and paste it on your desktop

    open it in Notepad

    you will see

    127.0.0.1 localhost


    Ok

    just put this under it

    127.0.0.1 www.lop.com

    Save it, overwrite the original in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc and reboot :)



    Waddy has made a really good hosts file for download has tons in it ...

    Install Ad-Aware (search google to find it) and scan with a fully-updated DAT file and it should find and remove the screenie.
