    Screen all "imesh-ed" up

    OK, I went for one of those "free music" installation/deals and got a dick of an infection. I was following a lead from a documentary I'm watching, The Corporation, for free archival information and typed "archives.com" in the address bar. I got links to various "free" downloads, none of which are really free - but when I tried getting rid of my imesh package I ran into problems. Uninstalling it from the add/remove function didn't get rid of a lot of the components; it has replaced my opening screen of Google with its own imesh search engine and, worst of all, has created a "creamed-out" area at the bottom of the Firefox screen that takes up about 20% of the screen. This problem isn't present in other browsers, just my home browser of Firefox.

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox to no avail. And I need some computer guru help.

    I've tr

    Sorry I can't help on the computer stuff. Ironic though that I was watching The Corporation last night but I've had a rough few days and fell asleep after the 'corporations taken on a person in the eyes of the government' and 'the Nike thing'.

    Then my DVR went down. It was used. That'll teach me.

    re: FF, it's probably an extension. Tools->Add Ons->Uninstall.

    Did you download The Corporation from the "Documentaries you...etc." thread too? Actually, I got it from Netflix; I'm of their max/8-at-a-time plan now and am watching lots of docus. Too bad about your DVR but get it fixed or a player and finish watching. This one is too full of vital info to be missed.
