I don't want to log in to Net.passport

  phil 13:15 22 Aug 2008

I keep getting a box popping up whenever I go into My Documents asking me to sign into Microsoft.Passport.Net

I try to cancel it or close it and it pops up again a few seconds later.

I've searched all over the w w w.msnusers. com site but it tells you everything but what I want.

Can I get rid of this some other way?

You probably have a virus - maybe Trojan.zhuth

Use AVG or anything similar and do some scans.

If not, I don't know, sorry.

I had a similar problem, but with 'windows live' & cured it by doing the following (XP Home SP2 IE6).
Give it a try.

'Folder Options' > 'show hidden files'.

Open My Computer > C drive (or whatever letter you use) > Docs & Settings > 'Your Name' Folder > look for a folder called 'NET HOOD'> open Net Hood & there should be a file called 'MyMSN Web'or similar - delete this file, (NOT Print Hood'- leave this alone).
