    The "All about Korean Spam on MTBR" thread

    Personally, I think we need more of it, it adds an international flavor to the site. It could be loaded with "rich content", in fact I'm sure that it is. I wonder if we have a Korean MOD that checks it out before nuking it.
    but it doesn't matter.

    I did notice the site seems to get plauged with this stuff often. I also noticed this site seems to be running a pretty ancient version of vbulletin.. I'm wondering if the two may have something to do with one another?

    Operating systems don't generally receive much mechanical wear.

    Or did you mean "hold up to viruses" and such?

    I guess Apple for that.

    However, as long as you run your day-to-day account as a "not an administrator" account, Windows machines can be pretty dam secured, if you use a good AV and anti-malware.

    I'm still running XP on this machine, and never have any issues.

    Hm! Never thought of that. It's past time to wipe my hard drive and start over with my machine. Whenever I get around to doing that I'll set it up that way.

    When you need to do something as an administrator, use the "run as" feature. In win7 it called "run as administrator". Type in your admin credentials, and you can run stuff as an admin right from the regular account that's logged on.

    Regedit is one I use a lot, so I keep a shortcut to it on my desktop.

    Be careful, fresh install might be tough to get the OS back up to date (april 2014 updates were officially dropped). Internet is way different compared to when XP came out, make sure you have the proper links.

    True, but I would add a music board to that, maybe the Steve Hoffman forums.

    Then you will be complete.

    About a month ago I logged onto MTBR and my CPU went beserk! I had sh*t popping up left and right, ads, ads and more ads! After an hour or so of struggling I was able to determine that my Norton subscription had run out. I have spent this past month trying to get rid of all the adware and I can't seem to get it all.

    If I load up MTBR at home the ads come out in full force regardless of what anti-software I am running! I am not talking about the regular ads on this site either. Every link I click on it takes me to another page to buy some anti-virus, computer scan, ect software. It's really quite ironic and infuriating.

    Long story short, I DO NOT go to MTBR on my home computer. Now it's either my phone or my secure work computer.

    You just need to run a scan with a good anti-malware.

    Try the free version of Malwarebytes. It will fix your computer right up.

    Also, if you're logged on to the computer as a non-admin when you hit a dirty site, 99% of malware won't be able to install itself.

    They run in the context of the logged on user.

    Outstanding Net! Thank you! A guy at work just told me about Malwarebytes today. I'll get that downloaded as soon as I get home tonight.

    Use a different computer to download it, put it on a thumbdrive and then use that to install on the dirty computer.

    There may be something on the infected computer that might redirect your browser, and it will look like your downloading that program, but it might be more malware!

    Basstids be trikky.
