I only understand about 1/3 of what you people are talking about in this thread.

Maybe ignorance truly is bliss.

I am having troubles here at CRF. I have notified Shaggy, our owner, about these problems.


Here is what I am experiencing:


1. New ads on the forum.
2. search windows, with ads popping up when I hover my mouse.
3. Pages loading extremely slow.
4. Inability to post without refreshing my page.
5. Losing my pages, and having IE recover them.



If any of you are having troubles, please post in this thread what you are experiencing.
1) no
2) yes
3) yes
4) yes
5) yes


Just to change my avatar a little while ago, it took almost 5 minutes to actually change. The site has definitely been extremely difficult for me to navigate through for the past few days. So much so that I have pretty much avoided it. Clicking "quote", preview posts, submitting posts, UserCP, trying to post a message on someone else's profile, etc etc etc. :banghead:

It's been painful.


That is how I felt.....too painful to navigate.


Is this your PC at work? or Home?

I took the advice of 70's Guy & Berserker...and got help to remove spyware, etc. Since my operating system is Windows Vista and my browser is IE, I decided to go to the Microsoft website for help.


They have a free download called Safety Scanner. It is a 70 MB program that worked like a charm.........I had 4 Trojans, 1 Virus, 2 spyware/malware. These all got past my Norton's internet security program. Safety Scanner removed them, plus polished up my PC a bit.

My PC is running extremely smooth and fast *Just Like New*


I no longer see any ads on the forum.
Pages are loading fast.
No problems replying to posts, PM's, or anything else.
And I haven't gotten booted or had any error messages.


I highly recommend Safety Scanner to anyone running a windows OS. It is a small download, and you can use it for 10 days.

You can download it HERE.

You should try that Security Scanner.


They have scanners for different OS besides Windows.


I am impressed with how effecient my PC is running after the scan/clean up.
