    Thanks SPeedY_B. That is the same stuff I came across. This "common name" is a b|tch. I made a very hatefull (almost illegeal) e-mail to the makers of "common name". ;) Luckily, I just formatted my machine last week because of the problems I was having. I'll just format again if I can't get it removed.

    And thanks lion7718. Might just bang my head soon. ;)

    Have you tried slapping it with ad-aware or one of its many alternatives?

    Yes, Ad-aware, Pest Patrol and Spybot - Search and Destroy. They all seem to remove then it somehow came back. I may have it gone now.

    Spybot seemed to do the trick finally. I am a new fan of Spybot.

    BTW, iMesh also comes with Gator and a couple of other dodgy things. I will not be using iMesh again without knowing it is clean.

    Link to Spybot if anyone is interested.

    Google is your friend, use it wisely :p
    Seriously though, my friend was recommending Overnet to me, so I started the download, and left it going. While that was happily downloading I gave google a quick prod for "Overnet spyware" and funnily enough, there were plenty of results. So the download was cancelled.

    Obviously its not viable to do this for every app we download ready for installation, but definatly always check P2P apps and other "good, free" software ;)

    True. I am usually more careful. However, on the front page of imesh.com, it says...and I quote... "iMesh is Spyware Clean" <-- a blatant lie!

    Overnet's Spyware Ucmore search accelerator, or something something, it's optional. :happy:

    CommonName is a huge pain. I can't tell you how many computers I've had to fix at my school where students couldn't get on the network because of that piece of crap spyware. I hope it doesn't give you anymore trouble.
