Hello,

Just tonight, I have been getting an "ad box" (a box with 6 amaller boxes inside) appear at random, on visits to websites, forums etc. its mainly loans/mortages, money related etc. It keeps coming back though, even though I've scanned with AVG, Adaware, and spybot. (AVG picked up "veryfy java virus" mind you.


TIA

Hello Johnny

I just run an "E-trust" scan, and it's not come back in the lasty 30 mins. I did a system restore an hour or go too - everything else changed like it does (AVG needed updating etc - out of date). However, that banner/popup box kept coming back. Probably nothing serious, just wondering why it "just happened"

Thanks

it just came back as I posted that message (exaclty the same time to be precise) can't really do a screen shot - as I can't right click on it

how "out of date" was AVG? and have you rerun all the scans? do you have A squared program on there?

sounds like if you have xp you need to clear out with system restore disabled.

sorry about all those useless "clicks" The last one though shows what it looks like and is the same size:)

do you have a pop up stopper installed? and also windows messenger.

click here is hopefully the page to find a squared program on if you would like to try it; if you do take it on board you will need to fully update it before running it:))

I have just checked my version which is I beleive "a squared free" version ; it will do scans but does not have some of the protection offered by the other versions; I find it sufficent for my needs :)
