bt modem lock (yahoo)

  dlguk 17:19 27 Apr 2006

A friend of mine recently downloaded the ‘bt lock’, she now finds that she can only get email while online. As she is on dialup PAYG and seldom at that, you can imagine how many emails she is missing.
She has tried all the usual methods of removal so I tried to stop it through msconfig. In msconfig when the tick was removed another identical path is created with a tick in the box.
Her machine is a’ Time’ and the OS is ME :-(.
Thank you in advance

You can't get email offline...what exactly do you mean? Use Control Panel- Add/Remove Programs to get rid of it but it is there to protect you from dialer programs that can run your phone bill up - you can unlock it for one call if you right click the icon.

Try re-installing the BT YAhoo setup software, it should appear in your add-remove list again if it's gone missing
