StopSign Ripoff?  What can I do?
glasslass
Utah, USA.

I recently purchase what I thought would be a very good spyware protector.  The program is called StopSign. All it did was put more spyware into my computer and it is running slower than ever now. I have tried to remove all the files, but there are some that are write-protected which one is a scanner and keeps putting back eacceleration files that keeps sending out information. It is a never ending battle so beware of this program. It is no good and a rip off!!!

Scambuster:
Check out this link on C/net and see what others have said about this product.   It seems you are not alone in your StopSign experiences.  The internet has grown so much in the past few years, that there is now information on just about any topic.  Therefore, it is usually possible and always recommended to research any product (just type the product name into your favorite search engine)  BEFORE purchasing, because even a trial version software which you later uninstall can still leave unwanted and/or malicious files on your computer.  You did not say which operating system your computer has.  Although XP makes it harder to remove write-protected files, it can still be done.  Windows 2000 is much easier for you to modify or delete such such files.

Whenever you uninstall a program, delete certain files such as playlists, shortcuts, zip files, move files, usually there are regristry entries which remain.  Usually these are harmless, except that they slow down your computer.  If enough of them accumulate on your hard drive, you may begin to experience frequent crashes and freeze-ups which render your computer practically useless.  What you need is a good registry cleaning program, and run it periodically to remove these unnecessary entries.  There are several, but what we consider the best and the one we have used on our computers for over six years is made by Vcom at Avanquest and is called Fix-it Utilities or System Suite (the latest version being version 7).  It is also frequently on sale at places such as Fry's Electronics and available online and at other computer software stores, but don't let the reasonable price fool you.
