  • Microsoft critical pop up/Malware alerts (merged)

    for the past week or so, every time i click into the message boards, a Microsoft critical pop up alert is interrupting me, is there something wrong with this site?

    Those things are tricky; sometimes they're set up to ping you hours or even days later after you've visited the site you picked it up from. Sometimes it might be coming from one of the ads our syndicate packages for us. If you notice what ads are showing when the pop up rears it's ugly head, please let us know, and Dan will get it removed (and the syndicate will address it with the source).

    In the mean time, don't click on those things. Back out; and make sure your anti virus is up to date. You may even want to use a cleaner to get the cookies out of your system, and re-start your computer. I use the free version of CCleaner.

      Malware detected

      Every time I enter the GH forum and click on the LT for that day I get a notice of Malware and can't get out of it without running my antivirus program. Does anyone else have a problem?

        Yeah, I had that problem too on Google Chrome. So I switched to Internet Explorer.

            Is that happening when I am actually doing the LT
            or later after the show is over and people go to LT to check
            it out?

              I merged these because the problem described is so similar; please see post #2 for a thumbnail of how it works from our end - and if you guys can see which ad is showing when the alert comes up and let us know, Dan will absolutely address it with the syndicate.

              It's so frustrating - for you guys, for us, and for the syndicate. Every time there's an advance in detecting this junk ahead of time, the bad guys sneak it in a new way and the dance starts anew.

                I was on the Canadian thread of Y&R and got a pop up sales info poll on someone's post. Then I checked it and it was gone. That's why I pressed the black triangle.
