Some stupid ass popup window changed my default 404 page to their damn search engine page, and I don't know how to get it back to the default. Can anyone help me with this?

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 generally just try to steer clear of any site like that. You could lock down IE enough to prevent that sort of thing happening, if you wanted, too. Or try Ad-Aware in the future.

I ran Ad Aware, but it didn't detect it.

What happened was, it was a popup window that came up when I was browsing. I didn't even go to the site. The popup came up, and the button to close it, installed the software.

I got it cleared away now.

I had the same thing happen to me, it's pretty cheap the way they get it on your system I must say.

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.

Can anyone help? I going to keep trying

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
