How to uninstall VMN toolbar

How annoying this VMN toolbar thing. Every time I disabled it would enable by itself the next time I started IE. Every time I tried VMN toolbar options pages the page reloaded itself before I could uninstall it ; I wounder if that qualifies for Malware.

How to uninstall vmn toolbar

Here’s how to uninstall VMN toolbar:

In IE’s menu under Tools look for Internet Options. Pick the tab “Programs” and click the button “Manage Add-Ons”. It should be somewhere at the botton of the list (it reads VMN TOOLBAR in the left hand column). There’s two entries. Pick one and select Disable from the options bellow. Repeat for the second entry. There you go.

Technically you haven’t uninstalled it but VMN toolbar shouldn’t show up again when you restart IE. I have yet to find how to properly unistall that crap but since I only use IE every once in a while I can’t really be bothered and this will do.

And how did install VMN toolbar? A couple of weeks I downloaded and installed some software from – ACEftp. Guess what, this shady toolbar comes bundled with it and, of course, I did not bother to read the EULA, so trusting am I. Anyway, avoid ACEftp and other ACE stuff, there’s tons of other free alternatives in the market (like Filezilla for ftp).

Searching for “uninstall vmn toolbar” brings up a entry from website announcing that you can uninstall it whenever you want from the options pages. Don’t believe it. Instead take the above instructions and forward it to your friends who might be annoying by this crap. Thank you

This is what you get if you mess with Benfica, Freedy Adu’s new club

Somehow I missed this one (eh, I live abroad..).
Anyway, this was broadcasted on national news: Benfica’s boss (that’s Freddy Adu new club) sent his gorilla’s to deal with a gentleman who had apparently misbehaved towards in the plane. The gorilla’s surround him at the airport arrival and one of the them was bold enough to hit him in the face in front of everyone to see and… tv cameras. See for yourself, it’s on the first 50 seconds, you can just ignore the rest of the clip if you don’t understand Portuguese:

Hypem is down

hypem is down

Looks surprisingly familiar. I wonder why…

Why do I have a feeling that this “company” (whois) is attempting to scam business owners?

They call asking for the business’ information, to be added to their directory. Just like any other internet directory.
Surprisingly, there’s no sales pitch at the end of the call. She did promised to send the info by mail.

Then they send a letter with the service the business owner ordered, to review.
Why should the business owner have to call or email to refuse the service when he didn’t agree to it in the first place? Continue a ler ‘’
