ebay a pain

  Newuser2 20:25 12 Sep 2003

I have a problem in that every time I connect to the internet ( via blueyonder) ebay appears on the bottom task bar as well. I haven't wisited ebay in yonks, & this problem has only appeared in the last couple of days.
How do I stop ebay from loading.
I've deleted temp cookies & files in explorer properties but ebay keeps on appearing.
Any help would be most gratfully received.

I've just downloaded an update for Ad-aware & run a scan, it found one new tracking cookie which I deleted & the ebay link has gone.
I would love to know where the link came from in the first place.

Going on from above I've downloaded SpywareGuard to give see if that helps prevent any more attempted hijacks.
Anyone got any more ideas on the subject.

Thanks all.
So blueyonder are to blame, I think they have a liberty trying to dictate what web sites we view.
A stongly worded email is on it's way to them.
