    SIVAD - great help! I'm going to the lavasoft site now to see what I can do. I'm embarrased to say, but my security program has expired. I guess I really need to keep up on these things.
    Any time anyone has a computer question just pm me. If I can't answer it I will research it and FIND the answer for you.

    I had a PM from a person that wanted me to privately email them. I responded that I could not do that.

    I would suggest staying out of the chatroom (thanks Scat) and not opening anything you think is suspicious! I got a strange email yesterday (posted a thread on it) from sender: Phentermine. This is just weird! Thanks for the heads up!

    I use the free version of AdAware and the free version of AVG. AdAware for the mallware and AVG for viruses. The AVG scans every email while I am receiving it. I run the AdAware about once per week. Before I run AdAware, I open Explorer, click on tool, Internet option, and then click on delete cookies. It makes the AdAware run faster if I do that first.
    In comparison, I download a free trial of Norton from Norton's site, and it found LESS than AdAware.

    Ladies....I have been using computers for the past 10 years. I have worked on computers and have saved other peoples computers from having to be reformatted. It's a hobby of mine and hubby's. I fix and he builds them. I have fixed several over those 10 years.
    I have NEVER heard of message boards spreading viruses. The only way is if you click on a LINK and it takes you to a web site that has a Trojan Downloader and it downloads itself to your computer or you visit a web site that has them, most porn sites have these among others or a link that says CLICK HERE TO SEE MY WEIGHT LOSS PICS, as Scat said in her post. These are probably spyware, adware or malware and some tracking cookies that moniter your internet usage. Some of the BEST antivirus software on the market will not find these. A VIRUS on the other hand is a milicious software program that YOU yourself have to open, like in email or file sharing, downloading silly files from the internet or copying files from another computer that are infected. The internet is pretty much free territory and there is NO law against people adding this stuff to web sites and uploading them to your computer. There IS a program you can download from this link http://www.lavasoft.com/ look to the right of the top of the page and download ad-aware free. It should take care of any spyware, adware or malware you get on your machine. I know most of you don't trust people on this forum because of the drama and BS as of late, but believe me I have had my share of viruses and spyware and malware and all of that crazy stuff. I have spent COUNTLESS hours recovering computers with viruses. I'm sure some of you are going to disagree with me on this and that's your right. But still wouldn't you rather be safe than sorry??
    If you don't want to click on the link I provided then google Ad-Aware SE and look for it and download it. THIS PROGRAM HAS SAVED MY A*S*S SEVERAL TIMES!!

    As for the slow loading of the site....if you are on during the day odds are 1million other people are also. There is only so much bandwidth a web site can handle. If alot of people are going to the site at the same time it will bog it down. If you aren't having issues with your computers programs themselves and the internet is slow maybe you should check your internet connection with a speed check. Once again google internet speed test and check your internet speed and make sure it's up to par.

    yes me too, so did Momto8 and so did lovemyboys....this site is notorious for trojans and I have since blocked quite a few....the chatroom is java run so it is easy to get a virus there.....and here we are always tempted to open up a thread when it says click here to see my weight loss pics...DON"T DO IT.....now we have all sorts of advertisements here also......

    everyone update your antiviral software and be careful!

    Default Phentermine Site Virus

    I just wanted to let you guys know that I got a weird virus from the site that was found by our IT support at work. It showed that the website was hit over 11000x in a one month period which is impossible to do for anyone! Anyway - it will slow your computer down to a crawl and they did not know how to fix the situation except to restrict the site altogether after deleting all internet files and all temporary files. I decided I would let you guys know my situation before I started doing all the delete options on my home laptop. I have been having so many problems with the site loading and it taking so long. Hopefully things are okay with others, but I can't risk it to lose my home stuff when I don't have IT support at home! Good luck to everyone!
