ads.targetedbanner.biz Continues To Cheat Its Customers

ads.targetedbanner.biz's browser hijacker is more persistent than an insurance salesman. I whack it down and it pops back up. It hits its own ads, making it seem that I am doing it.

Having Windows Task Manager running all the time does seem to help, though.

UPDATE: Its headless, blood-drained carcass may now be littering my hard drive if that's what "Error loading ...atgban.dll[, t]he specified nodule could not be found" means.

You're addicted to hopeless causes, NK.

But I did kill it. And I am getting a lot of Google hits and high ranking on this according to my Site Meter.

Use a Acronis encrypted partition image back up. You'll like it.

go to your control panel then click add/remove programs...the program is called Enhancement Browser Tools Targetedbanner. Simply remove it...worked for me.

you're not very smart dude, all you have to do is remove from your browser plugins, it'll uninstall completely. and you might want to think about reading the terms and conditions before you download free software.

TO the poster that posted on Aug5 saying to read T&Cs before installing software - from a systems administrator perspective I have to say, GET OVER YOURSELF - It's usually the users that install this crap and the administrators that have to figure out what they did so we can remove it! and FYI - I removed it from my browser plugins last night for a user machine I am working on - and it came back today! I also removed all the registry entries related to targetedbanner
