My husband has somehow got this onto our computer and I am finding it impossible to completely remove it. Can anyone help?

supermum48 Do you mean Incredimail? Googling that gives a lot of hits of people wanting to know how to remove it (presumably some of them get answers!) but I could see nothing about removing Incredinet.

I have never heard of it, so can't help.

Sorry Elegran. Yes it is Incredimail. Have looked on google but so far everything I have tried has failed.

Thought it must be. Not that it helps at all......

Not very good at this sort of thing, but can't you just un-install it? confused

Does this work?

Think I've sorted it now. I had already uninstalled the programme, but it was still on the computer somewhere. Apparently it leaves 'little gifts' all over the place. Finally I clicked on 'computer' and did an advanced search including 'hidden programmes' and it found 12 Incredimails. I deleted them, then emptied the trash bin. Finally I changed the home page back to what it was originally, and things seem ok at the moment! Thanks for your suggestions.

i found it was quite an unsafe site in terms of attracting viruses
