Apocalypse Tribe HQ > Headquarters > The Lounge

Stupid spyware... my task bar kept freezing up, until I get a pop up ad, for some really weird reason O_o

ARGH STUPID RETARDED SOLICITORS! Can't even get away from 'em online ;x

Sorry I feel like venting, it's been pissing me off for the past 2 1/2 hours...

Edit 2- Marn fixed me :O (99% sure anyways >.>)
Marn
Well, we'll see, but you shouldn't have any more problems. beigebigrazz.gif

Ad-aware is your friend!
Rogue
Yeah seriously >.> I never had a huge problem with this until lately though, so I was stupid and didn't bother getting it ;x

I love you Marn >.>

Personally, I like using Adsubtract. It is pretty well featured and not too spendy. http://www.adsubtract.com

I just use regedit and manually sniff out all those pesky browser hijacker. I don't trust those ad-aware enough to use em. Anything that is free will always have some hidden catch.

or you can open up your task manager, and list every process running.. then look up what each process does, and track it down that way.. lots of ways to catch the spyware shit without adding more to your system

mmm...I have really watched what I install, and don't install a lota share-ware kinda stuff. I have never really had a problem...plus the fact that I think I format my PC about once every year or when I start to see junk accumilate on it. at-emote1.gif
