    six point star plz help
    « on: May 22, 2009, 08:37:29 PM »
    Ok, so I logged onto my computer today, and was working like normally other than it took a minute to load up.  Then about 30 seconds later once everything in the taskbar loaded (including a white six point star) the comp froze.  Nothing is accessible unless it is already opened before the OS finished loading.  Any help would be amazing.

      .... ok so I figured it out!!!! It is aparently a program that is downloaded from a survey company called Premier Opinion.  I dont know why it locked up my computer, but here is what I did.  I opened the comp in safe mode.  Went to my taskbar manager to see what it might have been.  Well it is there and it is labeled Premier Opinion, and it sure enough has that little white star.  Either way, while in safe mode, I opened up the control panel, then opened the Programs and Features tab.... Then found it in that, uninstalled it, and restarted the computer.... Amazingly it worked!!! So if you have a Six Point White Star in your Taskbar, this is how you need to fix it..... Thanks for anyone who tried to help!!

      http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/premieropinion.com - Malicious content, viruses

      I suggest using WOT - Web of Trust. WOT is a free Internet security addon for your browser. It will keep you safe from online scams, identity theft, spyware, spam, viruses and unreliable shopping sites. WOT warns you before you interact with a risky website. It's easy and it's free.

      I would also suggest you read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled Please read this before requesting malware removal help. There may be other "goodies" hiding that aren't so easy to find.
