plus! - Check for updates

it then downlaoded, and installed ITSELF! so no option for adverts or now, ive been through the registry, removed the reg keys, STILL THERE, ive used ad-aware! still there, ive used 6 flipping things to get these off, and ive finaly come to UNINStALLING THIS!

The updater just downloads the same program. You had to press Next a few times, right?

RE: Dont install msn plus 3!
You say that you've tried ad and spyware removers on the sponsor program this will have damaged the sponsor program so it can't be removed by conventional methods don't worry. Install Plus! 3 again with the sponsor program (just trust me here I know what I'm doing)...Now to uninstall it go to Add/Remove Programs in the control panel and double click on "Messenger Plus!" (or click on Remove). Then "Messenger Plus! - Setup" is displayed.
Click on the Uninstall button. after a couple of seconds, the program will ask you if you want to keep your preferences, it is suggested to say "Yes".
Then you'll be asked to type in the number displayed in the box then click Uninstall.
Now you must click Yes when asked to confirm the uninstall...If you're asked to close Internet explorer or any program do so. Now restart your computer and the sponsor program will be gone.

RE: Dont install msn plus 3!
ash,  you accidentally installed it by mistake.  I almost did too-  cuz when I download things, I usually just breeze through clicking "yes" to everything to get on with the download (my bad habit..lol)      This time I slowed down a bit.


Deej,   During the last version, I did accidentally download the toolbar thingy .,   and Patchou's instructions worked fine to remove it.


read Sunshine's post-   that link she posted  has the full instructions.     Dont remove it yourself using AdAware, etc..   just follow Patchou's instructions given when you open that link.

   

PS-- Deej, i love your dancing critter avatar ;)
