Internet Explorer Plug in

Do not trust Internet and please read this ….!

Just what is Intelligent Explorer? For your safety, you really need to know

I recently hit, by mistake, what I thought was an Explorer upgrade option. It turned out to be a pop-up appearing legitimate but really was not. It uploaded a product called Intelligent Explorer on my machine. What a nightmare!

I did some research on the web and found messages like this one from a BullGuard Antivirus Forum,


Another message from spywareinfo Forum goes something like this:

"Hey I'm having issues with something called Internet explorer toolbar - Intelligent explorer. I can’t find a way to remove it from my comp and I really don’t want to reinstall windows. I've used spybot, ad-ware, and cw shredder but nothing seems to work."

It appears that Intelligent Explorer allows other software to be downloaded to your machine and this is where the problem occurs. What is even more remarkable is that by downloading Intelligent Explorer, their license grants them the right to install software add-ins on your computer at their will. Take a look at what the software license for Intelligent Explore says (go to to read it all):

"You grant to us the right, exercisable by us until you uninstall the Software or this agreement is otherwise terminated, to provide to you the Service of downloading and causing to be displayed advertising material on your computer, through ‘pop-up’ or other display while you use your browser. You acknowledge and agree that installation of the Software may automatically modify toolbars and other settings of your browser. By installing the Software you agree to such modifications."

The company, IBC incorporated, is incorporated in Belize. I really can't believe this license!

One end user found highly objectionable pop-up advertisements generated by this software bundled with Intelligent Explorer in the form of extreme pornography.

I have yet to break this.

Intelligent Explorer is a plug-in, which can create a new home page, as well as start up and endless loop of pop-ups. You can remove the view bar, but then starting up Internet Explorer will cause it to reappear. I asked some friends to help, and no one could tell me what to do.

This is what I did:

I bought a copy of a program called XoftSpy and it removed the software. It took two scans and a reboot to do it. This is not an advertisement for this product. They advertised it was free, which it was to run, but then I had to buy it to actually fix anything. It cost me $40 and I am sure that there are freeware products out there as well, but that is what ended the nightmare for me. Other spyware products I have seen out there include spybot, NoAdware, Spyware Eliminator, Pal Spyware Remover, and Spyware C.O.P.

Let the buyer beware!

Gobala Krishnan has an interesting post about Google as the decision-maker on who to praise and who to condemn amongst the Internet marketing companies.

Here’s how Gobala finds Google, the billions of dollars worth gorilla:

Job Title: The almighty god of the Internet

Job Scope: Decides which website goes to Internet marketing heaven and which ones go to hell.

Biblical Reference: Came out of nowhere in 1997/98 and crushed all other search gods and goddesses, rules from the kingdom of heaven (Mountain View, California). A few centuries ago, Nostradamus predicted the rise of Big G. It was foretold that Big G will crush the Devil (Microsoft) and that the people will love him. But in time, Big G will assume the role of the devil as well. Spiritual leaders are still analyzing the data on their Windows Vista. It may take some time.

Why you should cover in fear: Big G can crush your life in an instant. Therefore, you should log into Internet marketing forums everyday and see what message Big G’s carrier pigeons (so called SEO experts) bring. You may also find some fake prophets that claim to carry the mandate of Big G. They will tell you they know how to get past the system, and get a free ticket to heaven.

You gotta check out the rest of Gobala’s thoughts about Google’s own casino and charity project.

Google, IMHO, is business as usual, a stroke of genius, a greedy monster, and a fun tool rolled in one.

How about you? How do you find the Google?


Godfather internet

"Godfather" of the Internet, Mark Joyner, Releases his 7 Day Business Turnaround Kit to the Public

Mark Joyner, often referred to as the "Godfather of the Internet" due to his major contributions to common Internet marketing practices such as integration marketing and e-books, is launching his highly-anticipated "7 Day Business Turnaround Kit" on the net July 1, 2007.

Camden, TN (PRWEB) June 30, 2007 -- Mark Joyner, often referred to as the "Godfather of the Internet" due to his major contributions to common Internet marketing practices such as integration marketing and e-books, is launching his highly-anticipated "7 Day Business Turnaround Kit" on the net July 1, 2007.

Several weeks ago, Mark Joyner created a stir when he announced that he was going to allow seven small business owners to beta-test his new course called the 7 Day Business Turnaround Kit. According to Mark Joyner's blog, 963 hopeful applicants applied. Finally Mark decided to allow 16 to become what he lovingly referred to as "Space Monkeys." These were selected on purpose to provide an interesting range.

"We wanted to prove that anyone-no matter what your skill level- and no matter what state your business is in, could experience radical change with the 7 Day Business Turnaround Kit," Mark explained. "These guys range from "rank novice" to "business superstar." We have people who do business in the "real" world, and also some who do business exclusively on the net."
Over $5000 in 3 days - and money is still coming in from the injections

Steve Mayo, Kristi Sayles, Tellman Knudson, Dawn Bournand, Tom Justin, Mike Morgan, Kate Russell, Joe Lavery, Laura Klemm, Reed Floren, Tara Johnson, Andy Duncan, Jason Henderson, Ladan Lashkari, Tammy Lewis, and Jewel McKeon were chosen to go through the extensive course.

At the end of the seven days, each was asked what they would say to a friend that was considering investing in the course...

Tom Justin:

"I would tell them to DO it not TRY it. I would suggest they be an "open-minded skeptic." The experienced business person may find some rudiments that are "beneath" them, but within the training are some pure core nuggets along with formulas that can be business changing almost instantly. I would suggest that if they are on a high horse they are due for a long fall unless they bore down and find the root causes of the most basic challenges that face most businesses today. Mark set a genius level course in Simpleology, so it's of little surprise that he's managed the same thing here."

Dawn Bournand:

"Go for it! As with all of the Simpleology products, the value is extremely high for what you pay and you will not be disappointed by what you will learn. The simplified content makes it all the more easier to retain and then use in the moments that you are feeling confused or overwhelmed."

Jason Henderson :

"Do it now or you're an idiot (seriously) When there is no secret, when the law of attraction fails, there is and always will be, Mark Joyner. (If that has bad grammar, sue me! I have to get to the gym.")

The focus of the kit containing informational videos, audios, PDF's, and calls is to teach the owners to create what Mark calls a "fast cash injection mission." This allows the business owners to boost their present incomes to a level that they can begin to think of ways to restructure their business to be more productive in the future.

Participants are trained to look for ways to both save and make money.

Did anyone experience a quick cashflow?

"Over $5000 in 3 days - and money is still coming in from the injections," said Tara Johnson.

"Over $1000 in 6 days," said Kristi Sayles, second grade teacher at Camden Elementary School in Camden, Tennessee. "I'm just a part-time Internet marketer, but I'm definitely feeling empowered to take my business to the next level. The course was exactly what I needed to turn my business around. I'm going to be a guest speaker on two teleseminars soon. I look forward to teaching others to experience success with the course too. I'll be around on the Simpleology forum if anybody wants to ask me a question after the launch."

Joe Vitale gave the course two thumbs up. "I don't think I've ever seen anything so comprehensive, so detailed, so caring, and so strategically designed to help," he said.

The kit will be available to the public at July 1 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern.
