    today whenever I visit this forum - and only this forum - I get a bucket load of pop-ups. it's the first time I've had pop-ups from this site.:confused:
    I've visited plenty of other sites today with no problems.
    I have a virus-free PC, and have ad-blocked/scanned my PC.....

    anyone else with this problem, or just me?:(

    Try it out and see if it helps:cool:

    I have to say I'm a bit alarmed Sunshine.

    It's true, there are no pop-ups here ATM.

    I suspect some source resident on your PC is causing this. I would suggest you download and run Spybot Search & Destroy, available at;
    http://security.kolla.de/index.php?l...&page=download

    Spybot Search & Destroy is the only freeware detection and removal tool that is still kept updated -- AdAware and a couple of other popular tools are not kept current. And as we know, there are new forms of nastiness almost daily.

    Give Spybot a try and see if it detects anything.

    and for anyone who thinks kazaalite is free of spyware, have you run Spybot on it? LOL, no - I didn't think so

    What a brilliant program. I recommend it to everyone - it took all of 2 minutes to scan through my PC and gave me a list of infected files and registry keys and gave them a security rating classifed by red or blue - many of the blue found items were legit programs like Paint Shop Pro, but you still have the option of removing the crap from them but it did say they may not function properly afterwards.

    It even goes as far as telling you, in detail, which each "problem" in each program is doing wrong...

    It found two instances of Gator and removed both, that alone gets my thumbs up!

    Question: My mom uses Gator... and when we added adware it came up with a billion it seemed with Gator in them... if we delete those will the program still work??? I never heard of the other program and will give it a try!!

    When I loaded Kazza on my computer and ran adware omg the stuff attached to it was unbelievable!!
    I at first download just regular kazza and later found out that in the agreement section you gave them permission to use your bandwith and also the use of your harddrive or something like that..... a friend told me this information... he recommended Kazza lite.... now with kazza lite it wants to upgrade and I am staying away from doing so... just for that cause... and I think they are trying to make you pay for it now ::: not sure:::
