    From the title:
    I feel dumb, old, and clueless just reading that title that explains exactly nothing. :p :biggrin:
    (The link in it wasn't accessible "here", for whatever arcane reason, and I'm too lazy to do what has to be done. Note: I'm just jerking around and officially asking no questions and expecting no answers today, no computer related anyways. :biggrin: :melodramatic: )

    Hmm. I got more the impression they weren't even *aware* of the *possibility* of a *risk*. Like, "How do I remove these fucking ads? Ah. Ok. Now everything's fine." :confused2: :booze:
    Just like when you have a computer that you can throw away... Luckily I do have one... :whistling: :biggrin:

    All systems still working just fine here.

    Just under four hours to go until I get to sit and watch Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief as it hits the air in real time.

    Woo hoo!

    Do not go to that web site. I am now eat up with bugs we can not get rid of. I may have to dump everything and wipe my hard drive.

    I was soo tempted to try but I value my computer too much and know how clever scripts can be, sorry you have problems.
    Patience ... patience and I will see it when I can through normal ways.

    Edit - we now have 96 guests on this thread and I am loving the comments on twitter. :)

    I'm sorry to hear that.
    Your comp must not have a lot of protection at all, as i have had no problems, the same with many others.

    May your comp be well.

    My computer is fine too. I actually was on that site most of the day. I have Firefox, PrivDog Ad Block, Comodo Antivirus, and just the Windows Firewall.

    Just ran a quick scan and nothing was detected. I'll do a full scan soon as well.

    I also have Firefox's feature that deletes all LSO cookies when I close the browser.

    If anyone is using Internet Explorer with no Ad Blocking then I can see how that could be a problem.

    If technically possible, please be a bit more specific so that others who have used the site as well, might have it easier with malware removal. There's a big difference between an annoying tool bar, strange pop-ups, a load of tracking cookies, or a trojan. I've opened the site on a computer I won't need anymore and which I can wipe or literally "dump" if necessarily, but I'd like to know more. I'll do a full scan now with 2 anti malware programs on each computer and tell what I found. Scanned before also, only found some unwanted cookies as usual, same after opening the site here for a short time (didn't have a good ad blocker). If several people found the same malware, we would know what to look for (even if it came from them inadvertently clicking on different ads) and that might make it easier to determine which anti malware program (free or not) removed them and which, when trying first, couldn't. Thankyou. :)

    Go to the delete programs and look for any that downloaded since you've been on the site and delete them. Best way.

    I found a website that described some of those adware programs. One installs a search engine, btw, another installs a video/media service with adware.

    After deleting any new programs through your computer's system, you should check for any new buttons/icons on your computer and right-click and remove. Then go to Internet settings and Security settings and either set back to default or go through advanced to look for changes.

    That's from the instructions I had. Worked like a charm - I even removed something from earlier in the week. :thumbsup: Running like a dream now and didn't even have to run a scan.

    (For Lone Star! :tease: )

    Why thank you! I had a hunch that we might share that taste!

    Emphasis in red: Already looked, there are no new programs. And there's nothing new in the folder "download" either. Just the Adblocker from today...
    Nothing else changed, no new settings or search engines, or tool bars...

    Btw. the first anti malware program found nothing, not even cookies...

    I can't explain this different outcome other than with that the ad blocker actually prevents the installation of some of that stuff, and not just blocking the popups...? Had no alarms that attacks or downloads got blocked while watching either, but the security is all set relatively high. And for all downloads I do (fonts, the adblocker, whatever), I get a warning...

    Fuck this shit, I'm not in the mood now to desperately look for English equivalences for Windows specific terms to explain what problems I DON'T have. :duh: I want to gawp at Twitter now and do a thousand other things. :melodramatic: Second scan is still running, if anything is found I'll tell immediately ...

    EDIT: second scan also found nothing.

    What you are doing is enough. Your computer is fine.

    I just remote viewed it and I found no malware or bugs.

    Wow! Those German porn sites you use are awesome!!

    Remote viewing has perks. :yes:

    When you have the time and patience, find where you have warnings turned on. Should be in security settings somewhere. I'm no Internet guru, but I know there's a little box somewhere in security that asks if you want to see the warnings and you have to untick the box. Also, high security usually asks you if you want to download anything anyway. Beyond that, you can always shut the computer off then run it in safe mode when it asks, and when it asks if you want to go back to an earlier point, then do it. I had to do that with my old computer a lot. It was oversensitive. lol But the computer itself was just old and broken down so it got confused a lot, like it had dementia or something. :duh: It was on its last legs. New computers are super cheap now, loaded and ready to go from Bing Lee.

    You can also try Tools/Internet Settings (top right of screen) and view downloads to see if anything is there.
