It doesnt seam to be on this site. Try downloading "Malwarebytes" to your computer and run it. If that doesnt get it, try Spybot 1.6.

Both are free and you can get them at www.filehippo.com ... Dont worry, File Hippo is completely safe to use.

Must be the ads, but from what i see there shouldn't be any pop ups... So yeah don't click on those... Unfortunately about the ads there isn't much I can do, those are put there by the forum host and only way to get rid of that is to purchase credits and take them off.

If you have a pop up blocker try putting that, these computers always have it on and I don't have a problem with it yet.

If the problem continues let me know, if possible try to get a screen shot (Shift+Print Screen) and show us what it looks like.

Thanks Gilly,

Malwarebytes and Spybot 1.6 are NOT anti-virus programs. They are designed to remove Spyware, Malious software from your system. Anti-virus software can not stop all "trojans" and "rouge malware programs" so you need these products to do it.

In the past two weeks I have had 12 machines on my bench with "Trojan Horse" programs on them. Two of them were so bad, that I had to wipe the harddrives and re-install Windows. The two worst ones are "Antivirus 2010" and one called "Security Center".
