    I have been coming to this site for over a year, and for the past few months, the spam and ads have become continuously worse and worse. Now, when it is also hazardous to my computer. I clicked on the below link, and two trojans were detected. Thankfully, McAfee was installed and caught them, especially since one of them was considered a shell destroyer. That's right to the heart of my computer, people! I understand you're not going to be able to stop every one of the viruses from infecting your website, but as I said, this site has become less and less visitor friendly. Sorry, but until you police this site better, I'm going to be spending my time on other forums, instead. Too bad, because this was a good forum. However, I can't afford to replace my computer, or to spend all day waiting for a page from this site to open, due to the amount of ads on here. Have a good new year. :(

    It's a shame that you have to turn off AdMuncher to use Hotmail, and can forget to turn it back on. I just did another whole reinstall yesterday. Ads should not include trojans.

    Shame but i have to agree with poor chap above great site just a shame about all the adds an banners an for shure there active as i have been bounced around by them myself ' just a shame u have to instal a filter just to surf one site , it also causes major lag in loading the pages slows down the web site badly was going to post myself but u beat me to it .

    I do belive that if u was to click on that little link u would soon be sent from one site to another if u did not have a filter to block the adds , it certainly slows the pages down on loading . I do understand that the banners help in paying for the upkeep of the server just a shame they also slow it down

    I have been a member since the old days when the site was hosted in Turkey.
    I use firefox with noscripts and adblock. In the background, I'm running spybot, avast and a-squared.-never detected a priblem with the site
    This site does not have any trojans or any other problems.
    a few times, a poster has posted files with malware and I and other reported it.
    a poster posting malware files is not the responsibilty of the board. there are always bad guys doing that on other boards and forums

    I don't see any ads here or anywhere else I go on the net. Ad blockers work pretty well these days.

    SAme here.. I have absolutely no ads or any type of popup.. I guess if you don't like it here, you could go to one of the other billion forums out there.. Just my 2 cents worth..

    Kinda throws the discussion up in the air ' what ever adds are running on the site something is not quite right maybe there is something within that could be running a script to bounce some visitors off of the site either way it rings an Alarm with my Antivirus .

    You're using IE aren't you?
    Maybe you should stop using a browser that is a magnet for all kinds of problems and use Firefox or Opera instead.
    I recommend you use Firefox with Adblock Plus plugin.You can then block anything anywhere just by right clicking on it and selecting block.
    Also, if you have an older PC and/or slow connection, adjust your profile settings here to disable user avatars, signatures etc.
    I only have an ADSL 256/64 connection, but this site is fine for me, and always has been.
    You should always scan anything you download from anywhere first before using it anyway.

    Cheers.

    No problem dude.And good to see you didn't take anything I posted as personal.......I always try to help if I can, even though I get straight to the point and may seem a little harsh sometimes.

    Peace.

    You were running Vistardation before you moved to 7?
    It was really bad, wasn't it? I had it on one of my spare rigs a while ago, then decided to format and have a play with some Linux distros instead.
    I'm probably old by most people's standards (here) as well, I don't bite much......only when I get cranky, heh.
    Also, I hardly ever sleep anyway ;)
