It also allows you to share information about yourself and to communicate with other POP members through email and instant messages.

PeopleOnPage Removal Instructions
For POP variant:
Open the registry, by clicking 'Start', choosing 'Run' and entering 'regedit'. Open the 'CLSID' key inside 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT' and delete the following subkeys:
Next, open the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and delete the 'AutoUpdater' and 'POP' entries. You can also delete HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\POP.Server[.1], HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\POPAd.Server[.1], HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\POP and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\POP to clean up.
For SysAI and CxtPls variants:
Open the registry (Start->Run->regedit) and find the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. Delete the 'AutoUpdater' entry. There is also one other entry that must be deleted. Its name will be a nonsensical string of eight random alphanumeric characters, and its value will be a single EXE filename, which is semi-random. If you are not sure you have the right entry, open the System folder (inside the Windows folder, called 'System32' under Windows NT/2000/XP/2003) and load the EXE file it refers to into a text editor. The guilty file will have the string 'WinGenerics' inside it somewhere. Now open the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and there should be a similar eight-character random entry pointing to another semi-random EXE in the System folder. Delete this too. You can also delete the registry keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Envolo, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AutoUpdate and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Apropos to clean up.
For SysAI variant:
Open a Command Prompt window (from Start->Programs->Accessories) and enter the following commands: cd %WinDir%\System regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\SysAI\AproposPlugin.dll"
For CxtPls variant:
Open a Command Prompt window (from Start->Programs->Accessories) and enter the following commands: cd %WinDir%\System regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\CxtPls\CxtPls.dll"
For All variants:
Restart the computer and you should be able to delete the 'AutoUpdate' folder in 'Program Files' (on the C: drive, even if your Program Files are normally elsewhere), along with the folder 'POP' (POP variant), 'SysAI' (SysAI variant) or 'CxtPls' (CxtPls variant). In the System folder you can also delete the two semi-randomly-named EXE files referred to by the registry entries of the SysAI and CxtPls variants, and, if you have them, auto_update_uninstall.exe and auto_update_uninstall.log.
