TS Rookie
Just receive an email from Intego, a company I have never heard of, visited online or given permission to sneak its icon and software on to my laptop. Does anyone know how I can get rid of it? Has anyone noticed the same problem? The email implied that Oct 4 was a big day for them to contact dupes - er, customers. Email (3 pages!) is attached below as PDF. Help!! I am a total newbie to TechSpot!
