Wild Tangent

  SHUNNA 12:41 01 Mar 2004

Whenever I run Sbybot it lists lots of Wild Tangent stuff?? which I then get rid of, with seemingly no after effects. Also i see that there is a wild tangent control panel in the Windows control panel, should that be there, and if not how do i remove it?

Thanks fuzzyone, I already have Adaware installed and use it. Thing is, there`s always a load more the next time I check. Is there no way I can stop Wild Tangent permanently?

Maybe Spyware Blaster can help click here

Thanks , I`ll give it a try. If it does what it claims, is there any point keeping Spybot and adaware?

Yes. Each covers what the others miss...

both adaware and spybot as said above will remove wild tangent for you.

if you downloaded any freebe online games you may get this installed click here

it is classed as spyware though.

Have you got Winamp installed? if so you may have installed some AVS or game that runs with that and when winamp is run it will load again unless you change the default plugin from inside winamp.

If Winamp is a program, then it`s not installed. have downloaded SpywareBlaster, but there is no shortcut on the desktop, and it`s not listed in the Programs menu, yet it is definately on the computer, as I`m looking at it? OS. is WinXp pro.

Click-start-run, Type "regedit" (without the cursors). Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER-Software,
look for wild tangent and delete the key.

P.S. remember to back-up your registry before making changes.

a nicknames comments could apply equally to windows media player, there are wild tangent visuals for that also.
