Tiscali - Visual IP

  tingle 11:12 01 Mar 2004

Temporarily needed to set up a dial up account while waiting for ADSL to be connected (just moved house). Opted for Tiscali as I had a CD rom lying around. Made the mistake of opting to install some additional sofware on the disc - something called Visual IP. Now my computer keeps freezing up every few minutes. Tried to uninstall it bu was told that it couldn't be uninstalled due to some missing file. In the end I just manually deleted the program (and the whole folder under c:/programs. Kept freezing up, so went into regedit. Not sure what I was doing at this stage (well out of my depth!) but ran a search for 'visual ip' and deleted a few more files. Still freezing up intermittently. Any suggestions? I've recently had to completely rinstall windows, recover all my data, and reinstall all my programs following major problems caused by a windows security patch, so hoping for a less drastic solution. Has anyone else had problems with this particular piece of software?
