    I just know I'll be held responsible given my Greek heritage they'll accuse me of being a Trojan Hoss.:biggrin1:.


    In all seriousness I hope you can get it cleaned up.

    Most of the porn sites are loaded with malware and viruses. So think before you visit a porn site.

    I don't understand why this should be the case. Do the site owners put this stuff into their sites or do other people hack into them and plant it? Of course, I don't understand why anyone would want to plant software that destroys people's computers in the first place, but I take it as given that there are a lot of sick, twisted, worthless, malicious fucks in the world.

    I very rarely look at porn sites. I think I read on one of the anti virus or malware sites maybe it was malewarebytes that 80% of threats come from legit site these days :frown1:

    Most of the time sites such as X Tube are hacked by other people. As for the other porn sites (showing copyrighted porn) they are often hacked by the porn industry for using copyrighted material without consent.

    Also, a lot of the problem is with the ads on those sites. Oftentimes, the content is okay, but the ads have some nasty browser exploits and badware on them. That's why you don't do porn sites unless you got some serious anti-virus programs on your machine.

    aninnymouse is spot-on. I learned (the hard way) to not 'close' a pop-up ad. It was blocking the video so I clicked the box to close it and opened a shit-load of trouble. A system restore fixed the problem but it was a hassle. If a pop-up blocks the video, just leave the site. Missing a 5 minute video is better than doing a 5 hour restore.

    I use Firefox which seems to help - when I first got connected to the 'net, I used Internet Explorer and, fuck, what a load that was! My browser history was full of sites I never visited, I kept getting pop-ups about attempted downloads from other websites I never visited. As time went on, my computer got sicker and slower until it eventually gave up. I did a full restore, switched to Firefox and - with the help of some antivirus software - I've been problem free since!

    My point is.....um.....er.....I forget.....

    No, as I said before, the problem is that they're dickless.

    Firefox is a little better browser, but it's hardly "bulletproof". I've still had these sites try to load up stuff on my computer. When I notice suspicious shit happening (like those fake scanner/virus alerts) , I kill the connection (disable it via the control panel or pull the cable) and close the browser with task mgr. IF the malware hasn't disabled it. Some of them will... temporarily.

    I use several trojan/malware/virus removers. What one doesn't detect the others usually will. Don't fall for the fake scanner malware that pops up on your computer. Here's some of the REAL software available out there:

    Zone Alarm (there's a free version) (zonealarm.com)
    Malwarebytes (free) (malwarebytes.org)
    Stopzilla (stopzilla.com) (there's a free trial version)
    Spybot (free) (safer-networking.org)
    Avira Antivir Personal (free) (avira.com)
