Hello, I am hoping someone may be able to help me out with this problem. I have submitted this problem to various other Spyware sites and they have been very helpful in assisting me to clean out the garbage-ware, however they are not able to help me with this pest. I know they are over burdened with helping others with the damned plague of scumware. I run on a regular basis the following programs,Spyware Blaster,Spybot S&D, Ad-aware 6.0 and CWShredder. They all run clean except for a few data miner cookies that are introduced by my ISP Earthlink. I am running an XP Pro Dimension 4600. This is the Problem: Connections Settings are resetting to Proxy after a logon to the ISP. In IE 6 after launching the logon to my ISP, I have to perform the following. Options-->Connections-->Settings-->and UNCHECK the box under 'Proxy Server.' So, after I do this, I'm able to surf the Internet with no problems. And I have to do this EVERYTIME I connect to the Internet because the settings will just reset. My ISP is earthlink and they are unable to help me with this problem. I would greatly appreciate any advice on this. Thanks.
