Default Possible hack

Hi Hanno: I hope it is only me but there is now a little blue magnifying glass on all the photos I see in the forum. When you click on them the photo doesn't open but you are taken to advertising... nothing rude but really annoying. It wasn't like this yesterday.

Ubique! Mike

I had one where a few words showed up blue and they were a link to advertising. With another a window would pop up on the bottom of the page with ads. I had to use AdAware to get rid of both of them. They both made it by AVG antivirus.

Thanks Dave: I'll run a cleanup on my laptop in the morning.

Cheers and goodnight! Mike

Thanks David, I'll try AdAware myself. I have both those viruses you mention and I've been putting up with them for months now, they got past Norton when my Kaspersky subscription expired. Which would seem to suggest that Norton is useless...?
