webbrowser->brilliantdigital.com

By proselyte ·
After changing some rules in my firewall (Kerio) I discovered that all my webbrowsers try to connect to brilliantdigital.com when I connect to a page.

As far as I know I don't have any programs that should communicate with brilliantdigital.com. Ihave tried running the latest AdAware but according to this I have a clean computer.

I don't think it does any harm since I have a hosts file that maps lots of adsites (including brilliantdigital.com to 127.0.0.1) but its very annoying. Does anyone know why this happens and how to get rid of it?

Ad-aware should locate all the components & allow you to remove them, did you expand the sections to scan & check all the boxes in Ad-aware?

Brilliantdigital installs with Kazaa, there's no option to not install it.

Make sure you delete all your temporary internet files & cookies in C:\WINDOWS

If your using Opera go into file+ delete all private data & check all boxes.

You might also want to run RegCleaner from this site http://www.vtoy.fi/jv16/index.shtml
It'll list all your installed apps & allow you to delete them, it lists apps that add/remove doesn't list.

Deleting lots of files in windows c:\catalog seems to have solved the issue.
