Aww thought this was going to be a discussion on PS3 AVG or something. Can you imagine if sony made it?
"You seam to have a virus, would you like to remove it?"
You press X
"Deleting Operating System"
Sony's Argument: "Being a paper weight was it's mainly advertised feature."
Never had any problems like that. But, TBH I dont give any site a chance to... My setup..
Kaspersky = Full internet security + Malicious website protection + adblocker
Malwarebytes = Full internet security + Malicious website protection + adblocker
Google chrome = Adblocker plus + No script
Me = Using my head & not downloading crap & visiting obvious scam/fishing website.
I dont use No script on this site because I trust it & all of the ad's here are blocked 100%. But if I dont trust a website or not sure about it, I will enable it to make sure it doesnt run anything that could harm my computer.

NOTICE: Thread Merge! –
Again a simple 'screenshot' of the problem is all that is needed, from the thread that it happen on, to either ban the 'rogue user' using a bbcode exploit in his post or sig, or banning the ad partner referal from google or adbrite.
The only two ad companies we currently use is adbrite and adsense from google, and both of them are normally 99.99% trustworthly in the ad they pull from their paying customers, which we get a tiny small percent that helps us cover the many terabytes of bandwidth we use up per day in hosting fees.
We are in the process of discussing a possible donation or paid level to remove ads for those users, but that means some more changes in moving everything to a new country, but I can't say more on the matter at the moment.
Please try your best to quickly hit the "print screen" button on your keyboard, and then paste me the image either in this thread or via a direct PM to me.
Running two anti virus(AVG and Microsoft Essentials) with resident shield/real time support, can't duplicate the problem, last full scan was on the 13th(did a full scan with AVG before posting this, 0 threats found) I would have thought nothing of it, and been on my way, if I hadn't seen this thread prior.
As you can see, I hit back, the previous page that I was on, and it attempted to download something.
(Once again I can't duplicate the problem, and ads are not constantly popping up, etc., as systems infected with malware are prone to do, just this once instance(which is why I'm indifferent about it), and I only download things from private, reputable sites.)
The dialogue that popped up before the scan was
I can't find any information on it, except this thread...
E-Set has found suspicious activity on your pc and will perform some action on your pc
I am trying to figure out if I have an infection of sorts or not. Although I primarily use Firefox, I do use Internet Explorer regularly as well. Over the last month or two, when using Internet Explorer, I have had pages (seemingly from apps.facebook.com, although this could be coincidence as those are the pages I most often access in IE) appear to try to redirect to another website (I see a blank page with a strange web address) (after the current page has been loaded for a while, not while first trying to go to the page) and a standard gray dialogue box comes up with some sort of fake virus warning, asking me to click "OK" to download something or run a scan. The message varies - once it was purportedly from ESET and another time from AVG, neither of which I use or have installed. I have always gone into task manager and terminated Internet Explorer from there when that happened. Each time it has happened, I have scanned with Malwarebytes Antimalware, Microsoft Security Essentials, Spybot Search and Destroy, and Vipre Computer Rescue (each of which I make sure are up to date; each were run from an administrator account/elevated to administrator privileges except possibly MSE). Each time I have not found a thing. It has been my assumption that it is being caused by an ad
that takes advantage of Internet Explorer in some way (it never happens when I am at the same pages in Firefox). The frequency of occurrences is approximately once a week, and the recurrence of the issue makes me wonder.

Only way I get even here, was to click 'proceed' anyway
