Have you ever opened up an exam to find that you didn't study the right section of the book? That horrible gut wrenching feeling is what I felt when I read "You have been Updated". After updating your Viewpoint Media Player, which you probably didn't even know you had, it asks you to click "Update" to install a "new browser update" with "advanced pop-up blocking and graphically enhanced search". No X to close the window, no "No thanks", not even a right-click is allowed, just "More info" and "Update". This is so wrong. I don't care what it does, I want "the eye" out of my computer. I'm not the only one.
Kill it. First go to Add and Remove Programs in the control panel and Remove "Viewpoint Manager". That will clear out the popup. Then, uninstall Viewpoint Media Player. I bet you are feeling better already. I sure am.Posted by torque at May 12, 2005 1:07 PM | TrackBack
