I have peoplepc and just recently received the BartShel error and can't even go online with my computer. I have confronted peoplepc with a half dozen phone calls and they haven't corrected my problem at all.

Malicious intent pops up when I go online
  E. R. McPhail  
I know that it has consistently tied up anywhere from 50 to 100 % of the cpu. And when i ended the task, it created problems for me to shut down.
  Gerard  
I find it to be a browser hijacker for adware
  TJ

  Alvin H. Yoder

  Ruth  
It seems to be shutting down my computer. After removing People pc software and trying to re-install it, it won't do a complete install. Looking to dump PeoplePC.
   
I have been talking with tech support at peoplepc and much like a lot of the rest of you bartshel.exe was making my cpu max out.at 100% according to peoplepc bartshel.exe is for scripting on your home page apparently peoples new version is not compatible with my computer.(thats if you believe what they say) they gave me an address to download an older version of software which i did bartshel.exe still present but cpu now runs at about 8% when online
  Chris  
Stop the script with NAV when it pop-up; browse with Explorer or Mozilla. Listo! PS I requested People-PC service for more than 45 minutes; they did not solve anything and yet I had to reinstall the windows in my box.

Leave the pop up alone. Move it to the bottom of your screen and forget it. PeoplePC will load and function correctly.
  Rufus Alexander TallWalker  
it looks like being a part of PeoplePC 's software
   
I have had problems with the bartshell module and have come up with a solution that has worked for me. When you connect to people pc go to the task manager and click the processes tab. Then find the bartshell exe that is using all the cpu, click on it and click the button end task. ppc page will go away but you are still connected. Your cpu useage will decrease dramatically
  Timothy Boyd  
Think it may be connected to Peoplepc.com
  Sheri Warren  
It's part of peoplePC software, you can use windows connection wizard and a direct dialling setting to bypass the software if you would prefer.

It just started with me about a week ago when I wasn't having problems connecting, and then I had a bad connection problem not getting on the web AT ALL.
  Lisa Henrich  
I system restored from Internet 7? with the tabs back to the prior version and my BartShell Module Error is gone and my Homepage with peoplepc is back
  Sugarmusk  
I have problems getting online through my provider PeoplePC because of this BartShell Module. I've notified PeoplePc and all I received by e-mail is to go to "getsoftware.peoplepc.com". Okay, now they haven't realized I can't even get or stay online.
  Andie  
"Bartshell" notice comes up after connection to PeoplePc. I then go to "Start" and click "Internet Explorer" which takes me to the Net

Bartshel.exe is a program that peoplePC uses. Me and the wife just connected to peoplepc until we get our DSL back. When you bring up the logon to PPC screen and it finishes the log on it brings up the browser. if you go into Task Manager and hit end process on bartshell. The PPC browser closes. Bartshell.exe is harmless to your system other than using up a heck of alot of CPU.
  rebel  
It has disabled my computer operations online
  Texascannas  
Bartshel caused me to reinstall PeoplePC software version 6.3 to eliminate my problems encountered with on-line and close out situations
  rodgers

  patricia  
I have had trouble with the Bartshell garbage and have had to shut the machine down and restart. Upon rebooting the Bartshell garbage does not come on. Macafee says there are three files that are questionable, but when I click the Fix button, it does not fix the problem.
  MNeedham  
block scripts from Norton before installing Peoplepc. It will stop bartel
  dp  
constantly trying to access my computer with no apparent positive function
  gctracer7  
problems with it ever since I went to peoplepc. looking to dump people pc. shuts my system down.
  sondra  
It won't let me get on line
  Shirley Bove  
It runs your cpu to 100% if you open internet explorer from the PPC homepage, but if once your connected to PPC, open your browser from the start menu or program files the cpu stays low
  Tana  
Bartshel.exe is software for "Earthlink.net" customers who download their "Total Access" software
  Nick  
pops up everytime i log onto the internet through people pc now i've had issues with peoplepc before and have dumped them thaks goodness i'm getting ready to be done with dial up
  sjgoble84  
My guess is it is something being tapped into from somwhere else and using peoplepc as a way to tap into . The problem could be in the peoplepc as a whole and they don't know how to deal with it.
  Sid  
My trouble started when windows internet 11 auto upgraded. My pc kept telling me that it was a script error in bartshel.exe in peoplepc. I had to restore to a date before my pc downloaded internet 11 and then change my setting to I approve all upgrades before they are downloaded and then I changed my internet window setting so that it will not auto upgrade. Click on the tool icon and then click on about internet explorer and then uncheck the auto install box. So far this is working.
