Ads (Google Adsense Bot)

Postby musicman2343 » Tue Nov 19, 2013 3:28 pm

Has anybody noticed double green lines underneath certain words on the site? When you mouse-over them, ads pop up for things.

It just started happening today. I noticed down at the bottom of the page under active users that "Google Adsense Bot" was active within the last 5 minutes (which was also underlined in green).

Is that causing it? If so, can it be blocked?

You have a virus. Someone on another board posted the same thing. He found a virus inside Google Chrome.

Fantastic.... I don't use chrome though. I use Firefox.

Guess I'll be taking my laptop in...

Just install Spybots and run it regularly.

I've had it and it still got through. It's not finding it when I run a scan.

Try this site, Musicman. It was developed by a guy who writes the computer help column in the local paper. You'll need to do the "Windows Waltz".

It takes a while, but you have to follow all the steps completely and it does a good job of cleaning out anything you might have picked up.

Thanks! Ran it once and didn't find anything. Got it the second time though!

Amazing what gets picked up while surfing the net...
