IT Techies - Whats you opinion

I just installed DivX, with that GAIN crap (Gator Advertising blah blah), and I now have this annoying problem.

When using internet explorer, If I type in a web address that doesnt exist, I first get the DNS not found error page, then about 1 second later, I get redirected to www.lop.com

I absolutely hate Lop, with all its pop ups, and I am seriously getting P!$$ed off with it !

I have already sent an offenssive email to the Lop Admin, asking how to remove this "Feature", and he signed me up for about 10 lop Mailing lists, and a whole heap of spam mail !
(I dont care about that, as I started a new Yahoo Email Address, just for this purpose !)

Anyways, does any IT guru's know how to remove this "Feature"
I am assuming that it has something to do with the SHDOCLC.DLL
in the system32 dir, and that GAIN has replaced this file with their own hacked version, that has some Redirection code in it !

Any ideas ???

Cheers
Matti

Mate, go to Lavasoft and download Ad-Aware. It scans your HD for any ad/spyware and lets you delete it.

Or you can download DivX Pro. It asks you for the registration number only if you want to encode a video in DivX format. And there are always key generators to get DivX Pro working fully...

Had the same problem.

open the registry and do a search for 'lop.com'

You should find 4 entries. And just change the entrie with a site you use to search the web with, ie google.com

should sort you out
