    There is a way to block this, don't remember the spacifics though....but spy bot S&D removes it and blocks it.
    Who is more trustworthy then all of the gurus or Buddha’s?

    Yeah def. use either adaware or spybot and www.pandasoftware.com/activescan is a good free online viri scanner. If you still cant get rid of it id try safemode and search for it in the registry...Good luck

    I also had problems with sites like that. Not only porn, a whole bunch of obnoxious search engines and other sites tend to smack junk like that on your comp.
    Through trial and error, I found PopupCop to be a great solution. It appears that it blocks most software like that, so I haven't had to run Spybot in a looong time.

    Hi Fenka,

    Naughty naughty!...............you are becoming complacent, and that is dangerous.

    I have AdAware, SpyBot and SwatIT, and run them all at least one a week. At any point in time one of them can find something that the others do not.

    The point I would like to make is that scumware is different from malware.............people are making money out of scumware, so it is funded and motivated? I believe that it is much more likely to rapidly change and develop over time because of this.

    Keep scanning regularly is all I can say

    Cheers

    Hello Extreme, and welcome to AO.

    We are not alone in our enthusiasm fo HijackThis, I have seen it mentioned on other forums too. I would recommend it to everyone as a good tool to have around.

    Regarding "blocker software". It goes back to my previous post when I mentioned that scumware was funded. It is actually legal in most places as well

    The authors will have all the blocking software we have and then some, and will be looking for ways around it (still legal I am afraid). The blockers get updated, the scumware gets updated and so on. It is really no different from malware writers versus AV providers.

    The one big difference is that as soon as scumware interferes with something else you put on your machine, it breaks the law in a lot of countries. This is why HijackThis is so useful, the scumware cannot avoid it easily, and cannot interfere with it?

    Malware, on the other hand, can and does attack your defences and try to disable them.

    Cheers

    Good point nihil.

    And everyone has given me a whole knew perspective on different programs.
    My personal favourites are as follows.

    *Mcafee anti virus 7.0
    *Mcafeee personal firewall
    *Adaware
    *Power Scan 9.0

    Anyhow i think that others here might prefer other programs, but these are my current favourites.

    I did purchase Nortan Anti Virus 2004
    But for some wierd reason it kept on Deleting everything, and no matter what i tried it still said everything was a virus.
    Even when i installed a game (Age Of Empires 2).
    It said that it contained the Jeefo virus....

    In the end i brought Mcafee and no problems since.

    Anyhow cheers
