No matter how many times this gets stated, it's always worth reading again.

Firefox + Adblock + Flashblock + Tor + NoScript + Linux


Ubuntu. Linux for human beings.

If you are interested in trying Ubuntu or Linux in general, PM me and I will answer your questions and help you install it if you wish.

I saw this the other day while I was using Internet Explorer. It is rather aggravating. I never see that stuff with firefox... didn't have firefox on that computer. That problem has been fixed now. Anyway, I was only able to get it once, and from the way it behaved, I sincerely believe it was an advertisement with some kind of javascript that took over and redirected the page. It wasn't a virus. It was just a really annoy advertiser who wanted me to install his activex control and scan and tried to do it without my permission, I might add. Thankfully, IE default is now to prevent activex controls from loading without your permission.

Firefox + adblock + flashblock.

It shouldn't be required to use adblock is a serious problem.

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

I would recommend adding to your hosts file to block that crap.

Flashblock is more annoying than useful for 99% of where I browse.

Tor is good if you're comfortable sending your information through a Tor node which can be monitored (one in Germany I think it was got shut down a couple months ago IIRC) and if you can deal with the slow down. 

Linux is also not recommended to anyone outside of an experienced power user.

Its happened to me, I just pressed the back button.

It doesn't do it when running Ubuntu even without adblock. It has happened with Firefox and Adblock, as well as opera, though under Windows.


I've had that happen 2 times. It isn't spy-ware or viruses, but it is trying to get you to install some. It appears to be some hijacked ad that is launching a pop-up and shrinking the main window.

Just click the x button for the pop-up and re-size your window and you'll be fine. Or, you can get FF plus adblock pro. If your using IE7, go to Tools->Internet Options->Privacy and click 'Settings' under the pop-up blocker section. Set the 'Filter Level' to high. Don't know how well the IE7 fix will work, but it might help.

Hopefully ioi will get a new ad services. I know a lot of them say ads by Google, but they really seem like crap ads.

If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy
