PostSubject: Problem   Wed Jul 21, 2010 1:39 am

Shortly after signing in as a member, I realized there was a message in my profile. I opened it and it turned out to be an IQ test. When I tried to close it another internet browser window (Something about Alladin) opened up. When I tried to close that an info box opened saying that my friends thought I was dumb.
I could close the box, but every time I tried to close the tab or program, it popped up again. I had to use windows task manager to close Firefox. But then when I restarted the program the same tabs were up, and again every time I tried to close it that box would pop up and call me dumb.

I had to restart my computer. I ran my anti-virus, but nothing was found.

Has this sight been hacked?

I haven't heard of this problem before... so far as I'm aware, this site hasn't been hacked. I would like to call myself your friend (though I've only known you for a short time, but I don't have a reason to think you're dumb, so at least the message isn't true).

I never thought I was dumb, but thanks anyway. It was the box not letting me close the program that bothered me. I'm very protective of my computer, and do not want a virus. And that's what I thought I had. Thankfully, I have an antivirus I can trust.

I know exactly how you feel. I hate getting viruses as well, though most are generally quite easy to get rid of if they somehow get past AVG. I hope all it was was some type of advertising thing or something like that.

It would appear to have been just advertisement or something simply designed to annoy.

Please give me more details. I am the unofficial tech guy around here after all...

By "I realized there was a message in my profile", did you mean that you had a PM, a visitor's comment, or a recorded post ?

I can't even find the spot now... It was a big picture (About the size of my palm) on the right side of the screen. And it told me I had a new message. So I poked it.

That sounds a lot more like a pop-up from whatever site you were on before. I doubt that has something to do with this site.

Nevermind. I looked on my profile and I have the same thing, and on Stoneskin's I saw "finish the cartoon". It's right underneath the user's picture. That's got nothing to do with your messages, that's just advertising/spam.

Look for Adblock Plus or NoScript (my preference) at https://addons.mozilla.org
