iminent ist kriminell hat meine gmx toolbar gelöscht
Programm läuft im Hintergrund immer mit. Läßt sich auf normale Weise, auch über Systemsteuerung nicht löschen. Löschvorgang zieht sich über 2 Tage, wegen Erstellungsdatum und muß z.T. manuell aus Registry entfernt werden. Hier sind mehrere Einträge vorhanden. Also komplett absuchen.
