    I have kids who get on my computer and download things a lot. I have
    been getting pop ups from pass it on and it changes my webpage startup
    on internet options to their site. I've tried going to the registry
    to delete it but can't find it. Do you know if it is under another
    name and how I can get rid of it? I've tried several search engines
    and nothing has helped.

    Thanks

    If that doesn't work try scanning your system with PC/Cillin Housecall, its
    a free Virus Scan
