I downloaded iMesh and accidentally made it my home page. I uninstalled iMesh, but it still appears as home page. I want all parts of iMesh removed. I can't even open my yahoo mail.

You also have installed: My Web Search Plugin Stub for 32-bit Windows

It might be a good idea to thoroughly scan for malware.

You also may need to reset your home page if an iMesh page opens when you first start Firefox:

You MAY need to reset a preference if when entering a word or two in the Location/URL bar takes you to an iMesh search page

  • Open a new tab or window.
  • Type about:config in the URL/address bar and press the Enter key
  • If you see a warning, accept it (promise to be careful)
  • Filter = keyword.url
  • Right-click on the preference below the Filter, and choose Reset
  • Restart Firefox (File > Restart Firefox)

Care should be taken when using, or recommending the use of, any uninstaller product, including Revo. I use the Revo product, but, if the user

  • is unfamiliar with what is on their system,
  • perhaps can not identify what is a system file and what is not,
  • perhaps can identify what is safe to remove and what is not,

any uninstaller product can be very destructive to their system.

Better to take the safe path with the understanding level of the user being an unknown.
