View Full Version : Viewpoint Toolbar and Fotomat

2005-11-26, 15:54
Alright, the New/Undetected contact support form on the main site is BROKEN:mad: but here is the message I tried to send:

Congrats on Spybot! It's been doing a pretty good job of keeping my system running fluid. However, I recently opened Internet Explorer (I usually use Mozilla Firefox) and was confronted with an ugly surprise. The "Viewpoint Toolbar" has installed itself in my IE, and A) I don't remember installing it, B) I don't know where it came from and C) it doesn't have an Add/Remove entry. I removed it with ToolbarCop because I didn't want it there. I think it should be put on the list. I don't think it is a privacy risk, but the option to rip it out be the roots should be there. I just ran a scan and it came out clean. Please direct me to what files I should send you so that S&D might soon detect it.

After some Googling around, I found this site, I think it's related: http://www.viewpoint.com/pub/index.html and I also found Fotomat installed: http://www.fotomat.com/home/home.asp. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope to see the improvements in an update soon.

Hi there.
Please see this topic:

Odd that you did not have the uninstall option in ADD/REMOVE.

Viewpoint Player has been the subject of debate for some time, so no need to send files at this time thank you.

If you want to uninstall Fotomat you have to uninstall Viewpoint toolbar. You can do this through ...Control Panel/Add & Remove Programs. I went ahead and removed all program relating to Viewpoint, there were 3 or 4 in there. I rarely use internet explorer and use Mazilla Firefox as my primary internet browser so don't care about any of the "Viewpoint features". I hope this helps!!!

I was able to dig out viewpoint by going to the list of programs and deleting it there after I did the add/remove feature on the control panel.

I used hyjackthis to help locate pieces and delete them too.

Hope this helps.
