A few times after logging on to my ATT internet connection a little (1 inch size icon) guy named Aveo pops up on my screen dressed up in an old fashioned bellman's uniform with a dorky lookin' face and hat. It just happens, and he stays there lookin at me until I click on him (I would rather....well, I better not go there) and PRESTO-BINGO he disappears and a new box appears soliciting me to buy some hi-speed internet access.

Has this happened to anyone else? How do I make it go away forever? What or who forces this on my computer? I don't like anything forced on me, espcecially on this computer.

Anyone?

You probably downloaded something that had it in there, Zipster. Haven't seen that one yet. Did you try right clicking on it to see if there is anything?

Zip.
Like frank said if you right click on him do you get a menu of any kind. You can also check installed software to see if anything got installed on your PC. It will be called "Attune".

Zippy,

I just remembered, I had that Attune installed on one of my laptops, and I didn't even knowingly download it. I removed it by going to SETTINGS / CONTROL PANEL / ADD-REMOVE PROGRAMS. I found the Attune and just hit the UNINSTALL BUTTON.
