A 404 is a page not found error, which is a page that the host defines and shows you when you ask for something like www.blah.com/toast.html but toast.html does not exist. You can't change that, and their search page is the default 404 page for their site only. If you go to a different site the 404 page could be totally different and you have no control over that.
No, I know that websites can create their own 404 pages, that's not the case. ANY 404 redirects to thier page at www.lop.com. But I found deeply hidden on their site how to uninstall teir BS they sneak on to your machine.
Tricky bastards. You actually have to DOWNLOAD the uninstall program.
I got the same problem. I also tried the ad aware. I didn't work. I went into regedit to try to edit the registry. THe registry settings are all set to go to other page. Yet it still goes that "F" page.
I am going to take over their site...see how they like it.
