    Default imageshack aka spyware

    hi,
    i was asked earlier this week by 1 member if i could post my 3dmark05-06 scores.in response i said sure but this forum does not for some reason support the most common of files ppl use(jpegs).so the member told me to use imageshack and i said im not sure about fileshack.so i did alil research after visiting the spyware ridden site,and these are what some ppl have stated..


    "What?? No way. Say it aint so. OMG I cant believe it.

    That is crazy, I wonder if they (ImageShack) is aware of what is behind the ad. Or if so, do they care? *Shrug


    read the link for the rest.. 30 plus ppl talking about this,who use imageshack alot,glad i dont now.i was about to use them too.so00n as u pop on imageshack theres popups everywere,lol?. i,ll pass .enable jpegs here admin mabye?

    I'm showing that jpg and jpeg images are allowed for addition to your posts. There is a size limitation in place... are you sure that this isn't the issue you're encountering?

    I don't know since I don't have an account there. Let me know on the file uploads, though, so I know whether I need to address a site issue or not. Thanks.

    Using imageshack does not allow spyware to be loaded on your PC. Clicking on the adds like a dumbass will load spyware on your PC. Never ever ever click on ads, windows or anything that happens to pop up. That will most certainly load spyware on your PC. I use Imageshack on a regulare basis and have absolutely no issues at all. Tell your friends to stop clicking on everything that moves on their screens.

    You've got it

    I use Imageshack all the time, no spyware on my pc because I don't click the ads. That is one of the basics of using the net, should have sunk in years ago.
