KatieM had trouble on 01 Sep 2006
I ordered something called Internet Cleanup, from Allume Systems. It has a feature called NetBlockade, which started working immediately, though I hadn't installed anything, as far as I know. This confused me. (Part of the confusion was that I had just updated my Mac PowerBook G4 from OS 10.3.3 (I think) to 10.4.7.)

Anyway, to make a tedious story short, the NetBlocade feature (whose Icon looks like like a horizontal barber's pole, but may be intended to represent a railroad blocker) was said to block pesky popups. Actually, it blocks all sorts of things I want to see, including the Yahoo chess program. I get the icon where the board should be. The very stupid program can't distinguish some aspect of chess programs and the like from popups. So literally, no more chess on this computer.

I sought help from Allume, but got no response at all. Then -- unwisely no doubt -- I tried to "uninstall" by removing every reference to Internet Cleanup in my hard disk. Now there are no visible remnents of Internet Cleanup, but the NetBlockade is still in force. What can I do? Do I have to abort my system and start over?
