How do I get rid of something called BOXBE

  setanta23 08:23 15 Feb 2010

I got conned into signing up at something called Boxbe which was supposed to stop spam and now I have realised that it is a total pain in the butt and keeps highjacking my email lists and sending messaages to everyone telling them that unless they register I may not see their e mails

does anyone have any knowledge on how to get rid of this dammed thing

Many thanks

Have a look in msconfig and untick it.

Hi I had a Google for a fix for it but have not found one that works.
maybe someone can give you some help without stopping your e-mail account from working.
I don't suppose it would be in msconfig start up programs it would just be a matter of unticking it.
How long ago was it that you downloaded it.if recently maybe a system restore would remove it.

the site says it will take 72 hours so will have to wait and see if they are true to their word

many thanks to everyone for their time
