Exclamation Forum member warning

***FYI warning to all board members***
Please be careful to all who open threads started by 'dryiceman'.
The links he has added to his threads are bogus and a means of cookies and potential spyware installing on your PC.
I personally dont accept cookies on my PC and selected one of his links and the sites he tries to redirect you to attempts to open about 20 seperate windows and one or two of the windows that comes up tries to add spyware.
SO do yourself a favor... Dont click on links provided by this user....
It is truly pathetic that someone would try to attack members of this board.
Again....avoid links and threads provided by "dryiceman"

Talking Yeah I skipped all of that

Yeah I skipped all of that after reading the first post someone made in response to this guy. I have a Mac so I am not worried about the spyware crap, but Jorge -- you should block his IP address and put this guy out to pasture.

Exclamation

FYI all...
I thought I would share a great free program which works great to remove spyware from your PC and is also FREEEEEE !!! (my favorite word)


http://www.nysfola.org/lavasoft/aaw6.exe

This is the downloadable link directly to the software provided by www.lavasoftusa.com

Once yu install the program, execute it. Make sure once in the program that you run teh update feature to make sure you have the latest definition file. Run this program and see how suprised you will be when you find out how much hidden crap might be running in the background!

Thanks for the headsup. I loaded ad aware and ran the scan. Found one data miner program, deleted.
Thanks again
