  • Trojan Alert

    When I viewed the pictures in the posting, it was advertising a porno site and I was hit by 3 trojan viruses!! CAN BOB OR ROBB OR SOMEONE PLEASE CHECK INTO THIS? Can I delete this posting from my computer?

    Thanks

    Hi Betty

    I've removed the pictures as an interim measure. Let's hope Bob or Rob will be able to sort it out after the weekend.

      Sorry about that, I am not sure what happened the previous one worked ok..
      I did everything like last time.
      Sorry
      Crfty

      Might be his/her computer has spyware on it. I just checked on another website that I made the same post there and it works fine.
      Sorry if i caused any problems, I don't think i did though.

        No problem. Probably something that was picked up when you posted. Have you run your antivirus lately? By the way, what I could see looked really great!!!

          I'm assuming you're talking about CraftyNY's pics here not the porn site ....

          Isn't there a virus checker attached to the message board somehow? A question for Rob or Bob I guess ..

              I have to agree with Betty I think on this one-- I had to have mycomputer debugged a month ago at a hefty price of $95. which is cheap compared to buying a new puter.. well I clicked on the pictures and be darn if I didn't have to get it repaired again -- seems something strange IS going on- I didn't think anything about it until just now when I had to peek and see what will was talking about -- seems my courisity did get the best of me and I was smart enough not to click on the pics this time--but it did hit me that it was after I viewd these the other day that my comp went down.. Maybe something to it -then maybe not-but it does make you wonder.

                I read it afterwards .. Must admit the Trojan thing took a couple of seconds to click - not a UK brand name ..

                Nah not related - we just obviously both have a warped sense of humour ..lol

                I really like those doves BTW.

                  For you poor people that are forking out $95 or thereabouts for ridding your computer of viruses, you can download a FREE anti virus program from http://avast.com/. This one was recommended to me by a customer that owns a computer store. He says it's one of the best out there. I have used it on other people's computers and it does find the little critters. Another good one for finding and eliminating spyware is http://lavasoftusa.com/products/ad-a...e_personal.php. Delete your temperary internet files before running these programs. It'll speed things up.

                      Sharon, this program doesn't just tell you it has a virus, it also eliminates it.

                      Get it fixed and then, when you get it home, download the program and it will help protect you in the future.

                        It is an excellent program, Mike, that's the one my son-in-law hooked me up with and it is catching every thing.

                            Just a thought, Sharon and Betty - do you have a firewall installed?

                              Good thought, Gill. I do not use a firewall but Windows XP does have it's own but the user has to go in and activate it. For some silly reason, it isn't activated when Windows is installed. To perform this, go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, then Security Center and if Firewall isn't turned on, click Firewall and then choose On. If you don't see Security Center, then click Network and Internet Connections and you'll find it there.
