Ok, so im reading through the pit, my mouse is on my scroll bar/ i have a laptop, and sometimes tapping the mouse pad takes you to links, but there obviusly is no link on the scroll bar. then all of a sudden ebay pops up. out of nowhere it pops up. 3 times, the first i cant remember, the 2nd it was a pink bow for hair for 99 cents, tho i would say i would look stylish in it, but rly, the 3rd one was of a pink dog bowl. wtf is wrong, could i have a virus of some sort?

Was that necessary?

And run a virus scan.

Huh, nevermind then. I remember having this problem a while back, are the words that do this green and underlined? I'd recommend running a virus/adware scan.

Ill tell you EXACTLY what to do.

Youre gonna go outside your house, find the nearest alley. Youre going to meet a guy named Jim. Jim is gonna give you an envelope. Take the envelope and open it. Youre gonna find a key. Go to your nearest hotel and open room 54. Inside will be a squirell, there is a piece of paper in the squirells intestine. Catch and slice it open. On that piece of paper are instructions to fix your computer.

Run a virus scan or youre being remotely hacked. There are programs to remotely **** with someones computer

well, it's like a hacker trying to look at what you have on your computer. if there is anything worth hacking, then they will hack you. it's like a burglar looking into a house to see if there's anything worth stealing.

umm norton or avg is best bet... had that prob a while back... i use firefox btw, i had a virus/spyware prob so [hopefully not] you prob have the same

Close dio, but it's not so much a hacker looking ON your computer as it is one looking FOR your computer. And I believe no human input is needed for portscans. Certain sites, ads, pictures, whatever else can conduct them automatically. It scans for open or unprotected ports on your pc, and then jams viruses down the throats of all your unprotected or open ports. Firewalls generally solve this problem by 1 -hiding ports, 2-monitoring traffic or 3-blocking traffic altogether
1 -Like moving the mailbox to the backyard. It's still there, but the mailman doesn't know it's there, so you can't get any mail.
2- Sticking a filter on your mailbox that notifies you of any junkmail. Doesn't mean it gets stopped though, it CAN get through as innocent looking paper then turn out to be anthrax when it's on your pc.
3- Like nailing a big piece of "**** off wood" to your mail slot. The only way to get in is by blowing it up with fireworks.

Well, I'm fairly sure that's how it goes.


To the TS - There are dodgy adverts in many places. I know one that tries downloading spyware onto your computer, and that was on a very reputable site. Use a firewall, anti spyware and antivirus, and check the pages that are being opened. Is the address of the site different? Is the layout strange? Are there any other unusual flaws with the pages you're being directed to? If the answer's "yes" to any of the three questions, it's probably dodgy.
