tool bar RRS feed

  • Question


     i put it there myself, i believe. now it will not go away and i can't find where it lives to delete it. its a little active, annoying icon changing from a question mark on a blue shield , to a x on a red shield. it wants me to buy an antivirus program, lol. funny thing is that onecare continues to detect it through virus scan, but after removal it still remains. i remember installing 2 .dll file and 1 .exe file of which i am certian has something to do with the invincable life of the this annoyance.

    the files were isfmdl.dll,isfmntr.exe, and ictmdl.dll. i am currnetly looking for them to...... shall we say........ terminate them. where is arnold when u need him?. any advice to remove this icon from my toolbar(by the clock) would be greatly appreciated

  • This has happened to me too recently from some download/update to some video viewer program it as attached too. I was able to delete and cleanup most of the files I think. The shield still is there and right clicking on it, or clicking on it takes you to VIRUSHEAT.  I've tried everything to get rid of it. Another company affiliated with it was pcconnect.com which is what some of the files were hidden under.
