I hope you're not actually believing it when ads tell you they found a trojan.. the only trojan you would have is the one you would get if you install their "anti-virus scanner".

Well, my AV doesn't find any. You probably mean that they're in the temp folder of firefox.. if that's the case then you can just delete any alleged virus without hesitation.

it only shows up when certain ads load. If the ad loads and it wants you to Just close out and restart your web browser if it will make you feel better. I'm using Avast and I get it when a certain ad loads in the shoutbox. I don't know which one it is I never bothered to look and I think I told misho about it a while ago

Sounds like one of the infamous advertise companies.

We had one of those on a site my wife visits quite regularly called picturediary.se but in swedish.
It pretty much took you from one site to another, it's not suppose to function like that as far as I know thou.

Is there anyway to Disable the ads? or redo the shoutbox so that there are no more ads...in my opinion a first time user visits the forums and gets that it's just going to drive them away

Anything free doesnt work as well as the ones you pay for obviously xD lol except LimeWire... you can Download Limewire Pro on Limewire... not the smartest company decision in the world... lol

Oh and to loop this back to the topic... you have to look out cause most of the pro versions are virus's lol xD

Well now. I switched from AVG to Avast simply because I was getting false hits. However for the average user there is nothing wrong with either of those. It seems more User Preference really. and LimeWire = Virus City

I use Avast too, pretty much does it's job. The chance that a pro hacker hacks my pc shouldn't be to high^^.

A nice way to make friends with the police and to get fined for illegal downloading.

You guys all suck.... Anti-virus sucks. When your computer gets even a bit slow, Just do a frigging reinstall of the computer.
But most important of all. Only download from places you know are secure, and don't visit shady sites. When you master that you won't get viruses and then you don't need those anti viruses that makes the computer slower than viruses do. I never get viruses. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

As long as we don't give links or smth, it's not illegal to talk about limewire.
