Be Careful

Fri Feb 14, 2003 10:28 am

The admin of this site is dealing with the scum of the internet. I was nailed by some crap spyware that downloaded itself through this site. It was some scratchandwin.com. If you have it you will not find it by doing a search of your drive but it put itself in C:/programs/fsaw or something like that plus numerous registry keys and other locations. Go to pcworld and find the download for adware and run it to kill the whole thing.

Send a message to the admin of this site that dealing with scum like this will not be tolerated.

I agree it doesn't belong here. I just felt more people would see it here.

Admin need to feel the pressure of many users be pissed off at his involvement with this type of business. The pop-ups were bad enough. This crap can not be tolerated by any internet business that calls itself respectable.

I had a topic just like this:

http://www.airliners.net/discussions/non_aviation/read.main/314535/6/

The link isn't a hot link cause the html on this site is messed up.
