  1. I installed STOPzilla today and now I'm screwed!! I can't run Outlook express or Internet Explorer which is what I normally do. It just keeps coming up with MS Internet sign up screen (is there a conspiracy?) :hotbounce I'm having to access my hotmail account via AOL browser (no historical data). Any clues on how to get back to where I was?? I've uninstalled the beast but setup hasn't reverted back. I'm no techie please help if you can.

    BELOW HERE IS DIALOGUE WITH STOPzilla TECH people. Should I call them ? I'm in UK and have never dialled international toll free? ooer it's all a bit daunting.
