What is up with these friggin ads??

Post by JAMESTHEJRAGON on 1/19/2012, 12:23 pm

All he ads iv seen in the past two days have been the tricky kind you know what i mean? The kind that tells you like somethings wrong with your computer click here to fix it, or download failed click here to redowlnad, even facebook is minimized click here to expand.

I want to know why there are so many?
I have seen them here and there before but thats all i see now.

I assume they are all viruses and I know that most people on the server are smart enough to know not to click them and wht they are, but if you ask kme i think someones computer is gonna wrecked/hacked/virused if these hang around too long.

It might help (in addition to using adblock plus) to update your antivirus program and run a scan just to be on the safe side. Unless you have Norton, which in that case I would recommend uninstalling it and replacing it with Microsoft Security Essentials, which is free.

Of course if you have a Mac, you don't have to worry about all this.
