You are also using an old and no longer supported Firefox 3.0.19 version.
You should update to the latest Firefox 3.5.x or 3.6.x version: Help > Check for Updates

If like me you have downloaded imesh and want to remove it because it is so invasive taking over your search bars etc, and tried the usual methods that is control panel uninstall, start bar type imesh and delete the traces there, even checked in the registry without success. Used all the methods on browser tools that I could find on the net eliminating all unwanted search engines but couldn't find imesh to get rid of it. Finally thinking it must have attached itself somehow in the browser itself first of all reset I Google as homepage in internet explorer (got rid of imesh there) then uninstalled Firefox and went to Mozilla and downloaded and installed Firefox again and presto no **** imesh. I hope this info relives someones frustrations or saves your sanity Mic503.

What do I do if iMesh does not show up under Control panel/Programs & Features? I have Windows Vista Home Premium.

Firstly, export your bookmarks in a safe folder. Secondly, unistall your Firefox version with removing your bookmarks. Third, reinstall Firefox (I loaded the version 11). Fourth, import your bookmarks.

Since I did these actions, imesh did not appear anymore ....

iMesh should be called iScam. The same story happened to me. It changed my home page to their page, even I indicated to keep my home page at installation. Not a big deal. Even if I let them change, then I still have the right to change it to any home page I want. I did so... restarted the browser... it went back to iMesh page... started the browser in safe mode which disabled all plug-ins.. no luck... uninstall iMesh and WinMediaBar (or whatever it's called) through control panel... no luck... uninstalled and re-installed Firefox... no luck... run a few anti-spy and malware programs... no luck.

I found iMesh phone number on their website... called technical support... they told me to install the program and uninstall it again... how stupid this suggestion could be!!! What I did was I restored the system to the last well known restore point and finally get rid of this iSh...t.

I work with computers for 20 years, so I found the solution. I can't imagine frustration of other users who don't have this experience. I wonder if there are some laws so we can sue this company so it will be banned.
