Browser Problem Avant Hijack or what ?

  Giantsquid 08:25 07 May 2005

Hi All,
I have been using Avant Browser of late but I find it hard work as it always stacks up web pages sometimes as many as 10 and I dont want this.
When I've finished with a web site I have done with it, not for it to be lurking in the taskbar only to come back at a later date.
So I got rid of Avant, trouble is now when I want to open a app on my desktop the print screen comes up all the time, this happens with Google, or any app I want to open, favourite websites etc etc, what is going on here ? can anyone give me a hand with this ?

Many thanks,

Avant is only a skin for IE, so you've still got all the vulnerabilities because IE is running underneath.

Try running all your anti spyware/Trojan and AV programs to make sure your system is clean.
