Viruses, Worms, Trojans, Etc.

Post  Red Riley on Wed Mar 25, 2009 8:49 pm

Okay, I just got a new Malware ad attack from this free forum. This would make it about 5 times that I've had to clean and recover my computer after signing on to the forum. I'd like to heartily recommend that the club take this seriously and consider going to a no-ad version of the forum. Otherwise, I'll not be visiting here any more. I guess I'll spend my forum time at Mini Addicts or Minis Unlimited. I hate to leave you all, since this is the only all Elf/Hornet forum going, but don't see much choice. I can't afford to have my computer repeatedly attacked.
Sad

Sorry to hear of your troubles Brian. I can't say I have had any problems. Can
you describe what happens exactly so that we will be aware we have been attacked ?

Well, no more worries, I hope. I installed an ad blocker plug-in on my Firefox web browser, so no more ads at all. Hopefully that will keep the nasty ads from infecting my machine. And Bob's your Uncle.

All trojans etc are in quarantine in my pc.Does that mean they have been intercepted? Sorry but I'm still pretty new to this technology!

I've run all the malware again recently, as suggested in the previous thread (as above). I have had to click on the "fix my security settings" button just before I read this update- but nothing else came up and I've not had any problems. The ads do annoy me and I'd cetainly be happy to make a small payment to get rid of them but I don't think I'm getting any trojans or viruses from this site - I do log on pretty much daily. ANy further sugesstions to keep us all protected are very welcome!
