I was doing some thinking last night and determined that if anything, this should want people to use Firefox, or chrome, more. I mean, if you were able to get into an exploited site with IE; that shows you how unprotected it is. It also makes you realize that MS has to get things on the ball if they want to even remotely try to make that thing they call a browser internet safe.
Sadly it wasn't limited to IE, we found that after you first loaded a page it set a cookie that prevented it from showing again which made it a bugger to trace but after many complete clears we found the code and tracked where it came from.
I would definately recommend running a spyware scan on your PC, although mine was clear and whatever process was run ran and didn't seem to do anything... mainly due to the fact that whatever it was redirecting to was taken down swiftly at the other end.
Yes yes yes, use some form of Spyware, but some of these fake AV/Malware buggers will still load and circumvent your AV/Spyware from running. I had to clean a PC Laptop for a Niece of mine that got infected. It was one nasty one. AVG Pro wouldn't run, Malware Bytes wouldn't load, nor Hitman Pro. Funny that Spybot Search & Destroy was able to run and found it.
Having same issue on my Laptop, but it's wide screen. Seems the front page will not auto re-size past a certain point. This is with Firefox 4 Beta and also with Opera 10.61, Google Chrome 6 Beta & IE 8. My Lappy is using Vista Ultimate.
Same thing @ work on machine using XP with all said Browsers except Firefox, Firefox is not installed.
Just noticed that the forums as a whole will not re-size smaller than a certain size either. So it could just be a rez thing and then just how wide you have your window at. But now as I type this post the forum page I'm on views fine but if I open a new tab or even new window to the front page then front page is too wide.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
