    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 localhost


    just put this under it

    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.
