Dear anyone who is reading this message,

In my favorites folder, 12 links appeared out of nowhere. They are named "Dating", Phentermine", "Poker", "See new site on every click" and a few ones that a [bleep] related such as", "Only the hottest nude models" and "Real hardcore Pics & Vids".............Just to name a few of them!

I can delete them and they wont return, until of course I re-boot my computer, and theyre back. Also, my homepage has been changed to http://all-ru.net and I cannot delete it. The link is: http://%72%6c%2e%77%65%62%74%72%61%63%65%72%2e%63%63/%2d/?%67%73%65%6b%61

Sometimes whilst I'm searching, I will recieve screen-sized window pop-ups that are [bleep]. I've spent hundreds of $$$ a few months ago after spyware and viruses and adware wrecked my comp and this is extra frustrating. Can anyone PLEASE help me. my email is **Edited by an Administrator to remove personal email address. Please do not post your email publicly!

Anything will be greatly appreciated,
Cheers - Dave

Hi dave1983,

That sounds as if you have some spyware/hijacker on your computer.
