    * WHT and Pop-Overs?!?!?!

    Is WHT serving Pop-Over ads now? I've got 2 in the past 5 mins, each time switching pages.

    None that I can see, could it be a trojan or spyware.

    Not for me, I am Mr. Firefox. I havent seen a pop over or under in so long now, I get stunned when I click and a window pops up.

    My initial thought was WHT because both of the ads were for hosting companies that frequent the forum. I dunno, maybe I clicked on something...I'm tired :p

    Definately time to run Spybot and Adaware on that box. Looks like you got something that you should not have on that box right now.

    Run a spyware checker and get rid of it. Chances are it is doing more to your system than just serving pop-ups.

    I saw something interesting during that last dos attack when I tried to visit.

    After typing in http://www.webhostingtalk.com

    The address in my browser was change to something like:

    http://www.webhostingtalk.com/?3mmgas

    Then after 3-4 seconds

    Not sure what it was about but then I was redirected to http://www.webhostingtalk.com

    It doesn't take 3-4 seconds for me; but I did notice the same thing as well...

    Ugh please don't mention spyware, my wife's computer got absolutely tore UP with spyware this weekend, I ran Spybot, it found a bunch, ran Hijack This it found a bunch, cleaned it up, reran found MORE cleaned again (with both) ran again and this "Allaboutsearch" crap kept coming up (along with more popups and crap and IE WAS NOT EVEN LOADED!!). Finally killed this "rundll32.exe" that seemed to be spawning them and ran the online virus scan from trend micro and it found the culprit, a virus that loads spyware, something liek a.bkdoor7 or some crap. Man I was SOOOO pissed off by the end of this ordeal I was digging out the Suse CD's in preparation for a format... but man her PC runs the printer (USB multifunction so linux drivers are doubtful) and teaching my wife to use linux just isn't how I want to spend several hours I could use to do something else Of course one could argue spending a couple hours cleaning up spyware every month or two is worse. Maybe I"ll just built a little print server pc outta scrap parts and win98 and reformat her with Suse after all...

    I repeatedly get popups on WebHostingTalk and Yahoo, I ran several spyware programs and Hijack This looks clean. I also ran a couple virus scans and deleted some infected files and I still receive popups. I hope I dont have to consider a format.
