LOP spyware? (XP home SP!)
Don't know if this is the right forum for this but:
What does anyone know about lop.com? This is supposedly a form of xupiter, according to a google on the subject.
I have and run regularly both AdAware & Spybot with the most recent updates. They both say there is no problems on my system.
I just recently downloaded a trialware prog named "NoAdware" which will scan only but not remove any spyware until purchase. When I ran NoAdware right after running AdAware & Spybot, it turned up 110 instances of "LOP" type in my registry????? 110 !!! I manually deleted a few of them and low & behold they were back after reboot, just as the xupiter stuff does if you do not delete ALL instances.
While I don't see any apparent spy activity happening, I would like to remove this stuff ASAP.
Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
Today it is called golf!

Hi, Bob ~
Yes, LOP is a parasitic commercial app that is quite invasive. It might be hard to remove as it has many different faces as advertising clones and forms such as BHOs, dialers, loaders, shortcuts & hijckers.
Please take a look at this page for comprehensive info.
