I have heard that when you uninstall the xupiter program that if you do 
not go into the system and physically delete the files from the system 
it will generate pop-ups one right after another. I have also heard 
that if you do not remove the registry keys it will also try to access 
the page as a keyword search engine even after it is uninstalled. I had 
gotten it on my system and when I removed it I would type in my address 
bar an address like this "msn.com" and try to access the page it would 
not let me access it and would put "////%20" in front of the address 
and would not open the page. 

There is a registry key (I think) that will let you specify a search 
engine in IE that if you type a keyword in the address bar it will 
default to that engine to find the content you are looking for. I only 
found it after I was attacked by xupiter.

Has anyone heard for Xupiter storing itself in the memory section 
of the 

pc, so when it's uninstalled and the computer is rebooted it can 
reinstall 

itself?
