Where do these people get off!

In case anyone else has this and wants to get rid...
These 'people' install their software on your machine called 'Cashback' with the dog as a logo. when you try and unistall it asks you a series of questions ALL asking for criteria of their offers and none saying that you simply dont want it.It also askes you to connect to the www (no doubt to relay your info). when you try and delete thier file (locating it on your HD) it says you cant as its a 'sharing violation' or something.
The only way I found to get rid, is to ctrl alt del and go to the processes tab, find 'cashback' stop the proceess, then quickly delete the file.

This will get rid of it without the need to answer a series of questions form them.

These people make me so angry I could scream!!!

I run a virus check regularly since installing broadband. I want to get something to stop these people though.

Have you tried SpywareBlaster which prevents the majority of 'nasties' installing in the first place. It's free from click here HTH TR
