Their site pops up and the only way to get it off is to turn off computer. It says that I downloaded on 1/4/2006 and my 3 day trial is up and I am obligated to pay. Then they say if I do not pay it will hurt my credit. (I did not download) Today is 1/14/2006 and the message is still the same.

This is a business computer and sometimes I am in the middle of something and the site pops up and I have to turn the computer off to get it off and I have to start doing what I was doing all over.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

"Movieland" CANNOT report ANYTHING to your credit report!

AUTHOR: Steve - (U.S.A.)

For several reasons:

1). They would need your legal name AND SS#.

2). Only LEGALLY ESTABLISHED businesses with a LEGITIMATE business need who have a PERMISSIBLE PURPOSE can access your credit, and to actually report to a credit bureau, you must meet the above conditions AND subscribe to the service.

"Movieland" does not qualify to even access credit, much less report anything.

3). I searched public records. THIS "Movieland" scam has never sued anyone.

#2 Consumer Suggestion

Just a scam to scare you in it to paying

AUTHOR: Richard - (U.S.A.)

Is this a pop-up that comes up when you are not using the net, or simply doing other task?
I am not sure which pop-up, pops in you machine but chance is you may have spy ware.

Do a search for Spybot search and destroy or better yet http://www.safer-networking.org. Another way pop-up may come, is through your Messenger. This pops up if you are not even using the net. If you are not using the Messenger in your company, here's a quick way to turn it off. I am assuming you are using Windows XP, Step 1, Go in to Control Panel; step 2 click Services (shortcut); step 3, scroll down until you see Messenger, double click on it, a panel will pop up and click stop where it say Service Status. On the same pop-up you will see Starter Type select Disable. And that's it. Hopefully this helps. Oh, the pop-up is just a scare tactic to scam you into paying. Good Luck RSW
