Spybot is good........Yu should have it no matter what

Adware is good but also ads things to your PC.......So it is ok but Spybot is better.


The Trojan that went around was doing this also. It had a auto form thing on them and it would ad in things like links to forms(AKA profiles)

Run these programs and you will be fine......

The bottom line is this....

You need a GOOD virus program and you need to scan your entire computer.

You also need something that removes spyware. Matt_K's suggestion is good. There are other free ones as well, and you can read user reviews. Try a place like downloads.com or something to check reviews.

Why would one of the Admins or Mods change his profile?? Not to mention changing it to a Adult content site?? We have a lot of younger members on here (Under 18) and a lot of them surf people's personal sites.. I don't think an admin or mod would have been the one to change Jimmy's profile and add that link..

Jimmy, download.com as Marisa said, has all the spyware removers for free, or atleast trials of them.. But on top of that, if you don't already have a good virus scan, you might wanna seriously look into getting one..

Exactly. We are supposed to be doing our best to prevent and monitor that sort of stuff, no reason or time for us to do that.

LOL I agree I do not think the admin or the Mods of this site would do that lol.

Let us know Jimmy how it goes....... I use AVG for my Virus Scan. It picks up stuff that Norton misses. I like it. I also use Spybot......Run them both about twice a week just in.case

Not for one second i ever thought a mod or admin would do that. What could be the point of that?

It's strange, but i scanned my computer (including internet files) and it did not detect any virus (?). Oh, well...i guess i will erase any weird URL that pops there for the time being, untill i get a way of terminating the problem for good.

Did you manage to grab yourself a copy of Spybot Search and Destroy?

If not, here's the link: http://www.safer-networking.org/

Use the updates option to grab all the new patterns, but you might have to wait until late at night to get them, as it gets congested during the day sometimes.

Hope you get rid of your weird little virus/bot.

Oops I forgot about that

Good luck. If it tell you the name of the infection can you post it? I'd like to read up on it.

adaware hasn't left any spyware on my system Matt. I also use CWShredder which works very well as well. Stinger is also a good program that removes trojans and other spyware applications..
