  • since when do i have spyware?

    I was hosting some images at imageshack.us and then all of a sudden this thing at the bottom of the screen shows up:



    But, nothing showed up on my McAfee security thingy-mer-bober.

    is it a scam?

    EDIT: It says i have Mozilla..but i dont!!

      I would say it's an ad, I use spybot, it great to get rid of popups and spyware, but if you were going to use it I would suggest you search for it and not use any link provided on other site.

        Yeah its a scam. Dont do it. MOST of the time, any program that asks to be downloaded to get rid of other spyware/viruis is a spyware/viruis itself.

            If you're hooked to the internet and have ever visited a website, chances are you have spyware on your computer. That said, DO NOT follow the link on that "advertisement."

            Even with McAfee or Norton, etc, you could have spyware on your computer. Most of the time it won't affect your 'net surfing... but some of the stuff does do some freaky things.

            A couple of years ago, my computer would attempt to log onto the net even before I instructed it to do so. Now, why would my computer be so anxious to be online? It turned out that some spyware was anxious to monitor my activities.

            SPYBOT - SEARCH & DESTROY

            It's a nice little freeward download that scours your computer of the spies. I use it at least once a week.
