    Thanks for that Robert; yes, it is annoying, but can happen. There's a process of change and updating going on, which can slow things down a little from time to time. Apologies.

    Spyware and Adware

    I also think its worth mentioning EarthLinks SpywareBlocker free to members using TotalAccess software. While not nearly as good as AdAware or Spybot, it removed a lot of spyware and adware in my testing, and is very unobtrusive.

    Its best feature is that it acts like a virus scanner, preventing spyware and adware from installing.

    Frankly, thats what I use.

    If any members need help removing malware feel free to pm me. The vast majority of infections can be removed without any significant damage to the operating system. I would be more than happy to explain exactly how viruses work and how to check your system for vulnerabilities. I can also tell you which malware removal applications actually work and which ones are basically junk. Also quite often many infections can be manually removed with just a basic understanding of the registry and file system.

    Had three intrusion attempts blocked by anitvirus/firewall while navigating the site today.

    All from MSIEfakeNV.

    Only site I visit that I have had problems like this.

    Thanks for the offer, Third. I'm going to leave it to the cyberelves for now, but if we need help, you can be sure Dag or me will shout!

    Been hit by it again this morning as soon as I tried to look at the site. Am sure it will again as soon as I post this.
