Those damn GAIN ads that popup like MSN Messanger, are annoying. Do this to remove the GAIN advertising system, but keep the programs.
To do this, from the Windows Start button, select Programs, GAIN, and then About GAIN.
When the About Gain window opens, click on the Diagnostics tab, and then click on the "Click

Note that if you do not have a listing for GAIN in the Programs menu, you can use Close Programs
/ Task Manger and End Task on GMT and/or CMESys.
After it is closed, you could then delete the CMEII & GMT folders in Windows Explorer.
C:\Program Files\Common Files\CMEII
C:\Program Files\Common Files\GMT
Just the CMEII and the GMT folders and their contents, nothing above them.
