Hi, and thanks for using JustAnswer.

I assume ICQ is showing up as a search engine on your web browser? If so, what's your browser, i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc?

I downloaded trend and did a scan twice, I could not find anything with ICQ in any of the program names, but it is still on my ie page it seems to load immediately after my Windows Internet Explorer loads like automatically. in the trend scan I noticed on my yahoo tool bar list it shows yahoo toolbar/companion/ could that be where ICQ is hiding?
Tech Support Specialist: Viet - Computer Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 8 years ago
Yes, please use the trend scan to remove the Yahoo toolbar and any other toolbars. Thanks.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
