Hi All

I have noticed some of you are using Smiley from a website called Smiley Central. On the surface they seem to be good fun and a good tool for adding Smileys. However the software is a sophisticated spyware tool and transmits information about your computer and usage. The active X component it installs can in some cases cause severe slow downs of internet connections and I would recommend that people remove it.

I am aware that we need more smileys ont he site and so today have added about 60 new ones. I will keep adding smileys as and when i can get my hands on them.

All the best Matt
Your caring webhost

I removed them quite sometime ago, because when i installed it, it completely destroyed Yahoo Messenger & MSN Messenger resulting in me having to virtually wipe everything associated with chat etc off my machine.

Hi there

I would recommend going into your control panel and then into uninstall program...there should be an uninstall option there.

Hi chuffer here, I'm confused!! when I went to uninstall these smileys there is a link to http:/help.mywebsearch.com, when you look at this under FAQ'S it states that it does not contain any spyware I will uninstall to be on the safe side. I did wonder what the catch was!!

If you are looking for some more smilies you also may look here:

http://www.mysmilie.de/

Though it's a German site I dont think you'll have any problems to use it. Just click on the smily you want and copy the link what is shown on the site's bottom for further use. The site is free of any spyware ore sh** like that.

Have just done the deed Matt.

Hugo, just been to visit the German site and a free download link took me back to smiley central again. Don't know what to do now:(

Sorry, don't know where you found that free download link on mysmilie.de. Even whenI switch to the English version of that site - just found out that there is one :D- I always remain there.

You shall not download any smilies though, just click at one and copy/paste the link what is shown in that small line below all these smilies. It works fine andmeans nothing more than putting in a pic.
