Hello Gene1234,

This doesn't appear to be a question. In order to get answer, you may
want to clarify what it is that you want to know. Is this an error
message and you want to know how to fix it? Do you want to know what
zssycstuouo is? etc. You have more of a statement than a question
listed at this point. Hopefully clarifying what you would like to know
will get you the answer you desire more quickly!

In my IE 6 tool bar is the a statement "zssycstuouo" that becomes
'checked' every time I exit IE 6.
When checked, it disables my "PoP-up" stopper and adds another tool
bar that contains a search area, news, mp3 music, gambling, entertain,
books, computer, education, and travel. It seemed to come with the
search engine "LOP" which I have tried to get rid of. (VERY
When I go on line, I have to drop down 'view' scroll over from
toolbars and down to "zssycstuouo" and uncheck it, then check Pop-Up
I would like to know where I got it....and how to get rid of it!

LOP is a known and much-hated piece of hijackware. There is an article
about it at Spyware Info.

Near the bottom of the article are links to spyware killing software
that can remove it for you.

I downloaded PEST Control and B O U G H T  IT! (The only way I could
use the Program)
I ran it and it seemed to have cleared the problem......BUT......once
I re-booter, and the other toolbar program were STILL there.

The PEST support site says that they do remove LOP. Their support page
for LOP also includes instructions for removing it manually.

You should download the freeware version of AdAware, or the free
Spybot. AdAware is probably the best spyware removal tool there is.

I downloaded Ad-Aware V.6 today. FREE!
It seems to have taken care of the problem.
Thanks to all!
