Linky here... Who are these assholes... and why must they do this?
Why in the world did you pay $80 to get rid of a virus?
why the fuck do you people still use IE?
I paid that much because I couldn't do it myself, I had them completely remove windows and re-install it.
I still do... I like my IE setup.
Well I just downloaded Mozilla, after B. asked why we were still using IE. Mozilla own IE, B was right, it loads up so much faster. Thanks B, appreciate the advice.
I prefer Firefox to the original Mozilla, however they are both pretty much the same thing.
I'm on a 5-year old Toshiba laptop computer... and I'm not messing around with it. Everything on it works just fine. But thanks for the suggestion anyway B...
Download Spy Sweeper, and SpyBot.
Mozilla isn't invincible, and it still get s pop ups, but less.
pop ups- yes, but it cannot complis activeX nor vbscript controls, which are the leading causes of spyware and on the fly installs.
hell, even in IE when you go to a page that has an mp3 embedded to play- mozilla will pop open the Download/save box- so you KNOW what you are downloading... nto IE- it gives you all the shit.
I have adaware, but it still doesn't get rid of the crap. I deleted cookies and everything, don't know what the hell to do.
Fuck ie. NOt one damn virus found since last rebuild of system. No pop-ups, nothing. Mozilla owns and for you lazy bastards, no more typing ieist3hsux0r ctrl+enter all you have to type is ieist3hsux0r and then enter. ( YOu save one key stroke.)
Why the fuck am I wasting my life away on the retardn3t? :shrug:
Download the programs I listed, and run them. Adaware is good, and you can make it better by changing the settings, just ask E, but hte others are way more complete, even the free versions.
I have no fucking clue what you just typed.
and that's why people like you, and others who aren't savy, keep having spyware problems.
activeX is a DOM component which runs executibles within internet explorer- for example- I'm sure you've seen windows media player play a movie ON the webpage itself, instead of opening up the media player. That's active X. While movies are <usually> harlmess, other things are not. Esp on porn sites
The problem came up when I was using Yahoo to chat with my GF, and she gave me a link to the Nevada emissions laws, and it sent me to a fuckin' porn site and it started from there, I downloaded those 2 programs and it didn't get rid of the shit. I am probably going to have to send it back again to be completely erased download all the protection, set it on high and just be extremely careful of where I go.
I have used nothing but IE, not one problem ? :shrug:
