Consumer Complaints and Reviews
About two months ago I stated getting moveland pop-ups. A girl pops up on my screen advertising about movieland and then I try to get out of the popup only ending up in popcorn advertisement. I have tried to delete the program only to find it on my screen the next day. I finally placed the Nortan antivirus onto my computer. The program takes care of the situation but Movieland is still tring to get through. I will continue to try and get rid of the program. According to Norton this is not a virus but a program which you manually have to delete. You take a risk going into your progam and take a chance on removing the wrong data. I am not interested in Moveland program. I still to this day can not figure out how it got onto my computer.
I ran Norton AntiVirus full scan and it reported that movieland was in my computer and was a serious risk. Some time ago I was also invaded by stopzilla and still have not been able to get rid of it. I have no idea how stopzilla got into my computer.
I have tried everything to get rid of these two pesky things and nothing seems to work.
I never used the service from Movieland. True I did download the program, but I never used it.
The 3 day trial expired while I was in the hospital so Movieland planted spyware on my computer. I got rid of the threatening pop-up, but my Norton anti-virus is saying movieland spyware is still on my computer! Keep in mind, I NEVER downloaded or viewed any movies from Movieland. This was months ago. When I went to Movieland's website to uninstall and cancel the subscription, they placed another spyware onto my computer!!
I had 3 spywares from them loaded on my computer. As soon as you go to movieland website, they place spyware onto your computer even if you don't install anything. My anti-spyware shows media pipe is being removed, but it doesnt actually remove all aspects of this spyware. Movielands website even states we are the only ones who can remove the spyware.
I tried to down Movieland - no result. Now Movieland is sending payment notice for service I did not receive and there is no way to get rid of this pop up.
The Movieland popup comes from http://images.movieland.com/images/notifier_nrun.gif but users infected are not authorized access.
While it is running if you click on Ctrl-Alt-Delete you find a file named notifier_nrun and another named notifier_060316. If these files are deleted it goes away but somehow it reappears later.
Hopefully someone with more knowledge can find a way to get rid of it.

Mine is similar - I never contacted them. I went away for the holidays last Christmas and when I returned I started getting the same annoying message.
I refuse to pay them.
Movieland put popups on my computer and I paid to have it removed. Now they are illegally taking funds from my checking account. Help!
I don't understand how a "Free trial" can turn into payments. On the same day I had the Freetrial I removed the program from my computer. Now there is a constant pop-up that comes on everytime I turn my computer on, saying I must pay for this thing.
I am receiving pop-up video from movieland.com that tell me I'm 'legally obligated to pay, now that your free trial is up' and I never ordered anything from the Website. what can i do?
Movieland is sending me online payment demands for a service that I did not sign up for. There is no resource to get the problem resolved via their customer support site and this is extreme abuse of the internet via spyware and fraudulent service activity. The following is copied from Movieland supports page for submitting a customer support problem, however process will not complete unless you click free instant cancel that takes 4 minutes and I am afraid will install more spyware on my computer:
Movieland software was loaded to my computer from an unknown source. The software contains a pop up screen demanding payment. The pop up jumps in periodically and prohibits me from working until it completes it's unwanted message.
I followed all the company's instructions on removal of the software as soon as I found it on my computer. I managed to find and delete most of it, however I have not been successful in removing their annoying pop up screen. I cannot find a way to contact them without paying them for an unwanted service.
Some way Movieland was installed on my computer. I do not give out my credit card number over the internet. I do have a paypal account to use with e-bay. It is a problem for me but I will work on removing it. I have a router and run Norton Systemworks in addition to my microsoft detection software. They put it on without my credit card number. My daughter is the configuration manager for a major firm. Shr will try to remove it this weekend.
Movieland has loaded unbeknownst to me, onto my computer, and they threatening me. I have never downloaded this service and do not want it. I refuse to pay them anything or give them a credit card. These people need to be reported to the Arizona State Attorney General's office. It is a disgrace and I will not be intimidated.
I am also a victim of this movieland pop up scam. We never signed up for any movieland and they now keep sending a pop up to my computer -- no system restore or anti-virus program can get rid of it. Something must be done about this company.
Movieland has illegally put their promotion which you already know about on my computer. It is difficult to remove it without the danger of destroying regestry. How can we get a class action and put them out of business?
I really do not know what has happened! Movieland is appearing on my screen and claims that I downloaded software and that my 3 day trial is expired and that I need to pay...does not let you out of it! Says it was downloaded on 2-25-06 and that I am legally binded to pay them! I do not have the software! I do not know what they are talking about!
I am getting pop-ups on my computer screen from a service which I did not subscribe to. The service claims I did and demands payment or else the pop-ups will continue and they will attack my credit rating. MovieLand claims their service was subscribed to on Feb. 14th, 2006 at 10:04:26, a time when nobody is home. I want the pop-ups to stop and I will not pay them even though they threaten me.
I cannot seem to stop them with any program I've tried. I am not computer literate enough to handle complicated downloads and I don't want to pay for a download which may or may not work. Then I'd be paying for their service after all, just somewhere else.
I let someone use my computer and now I keep getting popus to pay for*****.
I am sixty years old and I am constanly doing work on my computer. I work for the Red Cross and this is very annoying when I am trying to work.
I did not download this program. I am very annoyed that I cannot talk with anyone. I tried to send a email. My next step is to write to my Attorney General.
We keep getting annoying pop-ups from Movieland saying that our 3-day trial has ended and we owe money for downloading this service.
Nobody has downloaded anything from these people and we don't want this service. When we try to resolve this problem and get this off of our computer we find that there is no customer service person to speak with, no address or anything else telling us how to get in contact with someone.
There is just a link telling us to give our credit card number to pay them or it will reflect badly on our credit report. If they are being sneaky and installing this on my computer and I can't get rid of it then what would they do with my credit card number? I'm not paying them anything. I don't want this service.
I recieved a pop-up said I had an account with them and I was responsible for payment. I`ve never even watch any movies.
One night I was bombarded from popup ads on my computer. They slowed my machine down to a standstill, and in my haste to get rid of them, I must have clicked on somthing for Movieland. I do not remeber being asked to signup for anything or agree to anything. A few days later this popup shows up on my computer saying that the Movieland Trial Period was over and was told to press the continue button to sign up. There was no way to exit out of this but to push the remind me later button, only to start it all over again. I have looked through just about every file in my system and I cannot find it anywhere. I went to the Movieland website to complain about this to them and it tells me that I am responsible for signing up. It now says I have to pay for the service and if I dont they will go to collection agencies to collect. I don't know what to do about this, and how to get rid of the file.
An unauthorized user (that is also under age) accidently subscribed to the Movieland service that we as a company do not wish to have on our pc's.
I began getting a popup demanding payment for this "service" called movieland. I don't even know what this is. It was never requested by me or anyone else in my household. The popup disables everything until it is done and demands payment. No customer support, no phone number absolutely no way to contact these thieves. I work from home on my computer and I will file a lawsuit against them unless they cease and desist with this electronic intimidation.
I started to get a pop-up from Movieland saying my 3 day free trial was over and that I needed to pay them. I never even heard of them nor did I download anything from them. There was no way to get rid of the annoying pop-up which ocurred constantly. There was no way to close it or to contact anyone.
I began getting a pop up on my computer saying I owe Movieland money. I don't even know what product or program they are trying to make me pay for. Noone in my household has requested their services and I am not going to pay them.
I am unable to use my computer because this pop up can't be closed and they offer no way to get rid of it with out agreeing to pay them. I am unable to get a phone number or address for them as well.
I came home to find the Movieland pop-up requesting payment for a service I do not and have never had on my computer.
Everytime I get on line to do work or research this pop-up comes up and slows down my computer. My privacy has been invaded by some trashy company trying to make a quick buck. This had to have sent to my computer since I did not download it and do not want the service.
I have tried to find a contact number but cannot get past the payment page. I also tried in vain to remove it from my computer.
I keep getting Movieland pop ups and cannont make them stop. I have never subscribed but they insist I did.
I think they should be investigated for their spam advertisments.
Movieland software downloaded on our home computer. We did not download it, regardless of what the site indicates and we cannot get rid of it.
Every 10 minutes a popup comes on and says we are in violation and they want our money.
Somebody has to do something about this. This seems to be a violation of our time and our computer.
A member of my household accidentally logged on to Movieland without realizing that after the 3 day trial, a legal obligation to subscribe would be automatic.
The company is threatening me with a collection agency and black marks on my credit record.
Annoying pop-ups for something never ordered.
Due to these pop-ups I've lost email contact with my Mom's doctors more than once and with the VA while scheduling appointments for myself. I have trouble connecting with the net anyway because of the remoteness of my location, and now movieland is screwing that up.
