actually, top text is not a virus but it behaves like one as far as I am concerned....my website and my advertising is my business and I totally resent some scum bag making money off my hard work....there are you still lost?

From what I'm reading, I'd describe this toptext as internet vandalism.

I posted this in a different thread but to recap:
the info on Alexa's site is HIGHLY inaccurate and previous versions (not sure about recent versions) could act like keystroke loggers even on secure pages. That is one of the reasons why Ad Aware classes it as spyware I believe.
The traffic rankings it gives are ridiculous. Install the Alexa toolbar, set your home page as, say, your own site, and watch that traffic ranking improve in leaps and bounds.
It's link pop stats are also bogus.

This makes glad I never got that Kaza sh_t. I'm a musician. I give some of my best music away for free at mp3.com. But there I have a choice, I know what's going on, and I have a shot at making at least part of a living by selling CD's through them. "File Sharing" that cuts musicians out of all royalties for their music without even a warning, really is not cool for anyone who does this for a living! So now some scumware comes with the file sharing theft-ware....I must admit I kinda feel that it serves those people right!

I cannot get this crap off my system even with the Pest Patrol. It will go off for a day and the be back the next morning. What do I hvae to do to remove it completely?
I will appreciate ANY help

There is so much out there now you will have to be more specific as to what "crap" you are trying to get rid of.

I never heard of this till now. I recently visited a webmaster forum that I joined yesterday at www.ozzu.com and clicked on a link in the messege boards. This morning, I had this cursed ezula installed I used spybot to eliminate it, at least I hope it is gone
Now, I am afraid to even go back to that site, and am afraid to even click on a link anywhere. It locked up my system real bad.
So beware about clicking on links in forums. I am going to also notify that websites admin about this outrage. Thanks for letting me join this forum. Its great

I have an idea to cut down on spyware that hijacks your web searches like kanoodle. Because these companies are pay per click and depend advertisiers click on the links. Then send e-mail to the site owner that the company they are advertising with is hijacking your web searches and all you did was cost them a click that they will never sell to. See how fast these companies go out of business.

Re: Ezula - Kazza
This is the first time I've looked at this thread, so I apologise if this has been mentioned before, but I've had very good results with StartupCPL.
It's free, and it lists alot of hidden startup programs, and makes it quite easy to kill most of them.
Sometimes items pop straight back up as you remove them, but all the ones I've found that do that can be removed in conjunction with Windows Task Manager - you check the name of the file that has returned in StartupCPL, find it in Task Manager, end the process, then remove it in StartupCPL, then reboot.
In my experience that's got the job done
