|HINTS AND TIPS FOR MALWARE AND SPYWARE|
|BROWSING THE WEB SHOULD BE FUN AND WORRY-FREE|
Does your internet browser seem to have a mind of its own? If so, it's more than likely you have visited a site that used some trickery to change your browser's settings. What can you do about it? Well, you can start by reading this article. It may be of help in trying to solve your problem. I would also sugest installing this protection software named Ad-Awere.
|THE HOSTS FILE|
If you're getting redirects and/or pop-up chains from
some of your favourite sites than your windows hosts have been changed
with you even knowing it. Before DNS servers came along, domain name
translation was done through the HOSTS file on your PC. The hosts file
listed, line by line, Internet domain names and their associated IP
numbers. The DNS server system came along and eliminated much of the need
for HOSTS files.
|DO YOU THINK YOUR COMPUTER IS INFECTED WITH A SPYWARE OR ADWARE?|
There are alot of good online scanners that may be able to tell if your computer is infected by malware and they can be used in your attempt to spot the problem and solve it. Here's an online adware/spyware scanner.
Most viruses and malware today are created to target Internet Explorer users so you could try to use a different browser like Mozzila Firefox. It's free and it has alot of features like an integrated pop-up blocker and google search. You may also want to use this free spyware removal tool from Microsoft. It's still beta but they keep imporving it. More information from Microsoft is also availible. You can even watch a video about how to protect your computer from spyware.
The environment created by scumware, spyware, browser
hijackers and malicious scripts can make anyone afraid of that next mouse
click. I manually review every single gallery link that gets listed on my
site and at moment they go online they are all clean (virus free, scam
free, scumware free). But after that moment some webmasters or hosting
companies think it's a smart thing to alter their page so that it no
longer complies with my rules. It's impossible for me to spot every link
that is changed after being posted even with multiple reviews. On top of
that, there are some webmasters that set their tricks to only happen to
every 4th, 5th, 10th, etc, surfer. That makes it even harder for me to
find those cheaters. Please let me know if you get any on one of my daily
gallery listing. Thanks
