Still having trouble logging in--doesn't like my password--and still requires me to log in again darned near every time I want to post something, three times for instance for the last three posts, including this one, all within about 5 minutes.  Doesn't encourage participation (maybe that's the idea?).

David, this is almost certainly a problem with your cookies on your browser. In whatever browser you are using, delete all cookies, and clear the cache. Restart the browser. Then try logging in again, making absolutely sure you have the correct username/password combination. Choose the option to always stay logged in (which sends a new cookie to the browser).

Please let me know if problems persist.

cheers
Rob

Rob--I switched to a different PC and no problem, so it probably is cookies on the notebook.  May check that out sooner or later.  Thanks.

Thanks, Karl.  I must admit that the glitch has deterred me from posting on the relatively rare occasions I've visited in the past year or so.  Looks as if there's a host of new members.  Great!

I would like to bump my problem up to call attention to it to the moderators.

Earlier I posted a couple of screen shots in the "Windows 7...Interested?" thread about Kaspersky alerting me to a trojan while loading the google ads on each page. I have now switched to IE8 and I''m still getting the same warnings. It just started this morning (my time in the states).

At first I thought it was possibly browser related because I just started using Opera late last night and this is the first time these errors have ever popped up. When I get the warning from Kaspersky it says that it is deleting it. The warnings are a real pain though because the dialogue pops up whenever I switch screens.

Thanks.

I use Kaspersky, and the very same has happened to me this morning 5:30am GMT UK.

It appears one or more of the links/info pages attached to this forum are occupied with a Trojan.

If our firewall is spotting this, could there be a risk to other users, who's firewall isn't spotting them?

I am at work now and work's pc is not spotting them either!!

I await any further info/updates

There is one other possibility I thought of. A year or two ago Kaspersky sent out a bad dat file which caused a false positive. In that case they had it fixed in about an hour. This has been going on for several hours. I will check their forum and see if there has been any reports on it. Will report back.

Others are reporting this issue on the Kaspersky forum. I updated my dat files but it did not fix. No word from Kaspersky yet. The prevailing view is that it is a false positive.

I use AVG and Malwarebytes. I have not gotten any alerts. I just ran a MBAM system scan and came up clean. I find it highly unlikely that a google ad would contain a trojan. If in fact there is one, I'll be switching to Kapersky  ;)

That is MY prevailing view, as well. I use Trend Micro at home and AVG at work, Firefox at home and Google Chrome at work. I have had no alerts or any other issues. Of course, no news is not always good news, but in this case...

BTW, instead of Opera you might be interested in Chrome. I've been using for just 2 weeks now, but my experience is very positive so far. :)

Still no word from Kaspersky. Here are the instructions to exclude that particular trojan name. It will turn off the warnings:
I will probably leave it this way for a day and then remove the exclusion if I don't hear word back from them sooner than that.

************************

To add this false-positive to exclusions, open Kaspersky's Settings and click Threats and Exclusions - (exclusions) Settings - Add.
Untick "Object" and tick "Threat type".
Enter the threat name Trojan.js.redirector.ar
Click all the OKs.

How dare you! No one ever leaves Opera for another browser! $:)

Once you try Chrome, you likely won't want to go back...  0:)

I dumped AVG for Malwarebytes over the weekend. It found some stuff that AVG Free didn't.

Have you ever used Opera?

(I love what's currently happening to this thread. ;D)

Yeah, I tried it once at the instigation of one of the mods. It turned out that the then-current version was buggy and it destroyed my whole hard drive, causing me to lose hundreds of $$$ worth of music and irreplaceable photos and documents. Other than that, I liked it pretty well.... ;)

I'm assuming this is a joke.   :o

Advocating software is dangerous, because when it disappoints it is your fault, although there is a temptation to proselytize.  I knew a guy who refused to recommend any software.  If you asked him if a certain application could do something he would never say "yes."  He'd say, "I've used it to do that."

I tried Chrome but it's not 100% compatible with websites.  I prefer firefox, even if Chrome is slightly faster.  Besides my years of using gmail has taught me that google's software stays at beta level unreliable spottiness for years. :D

Well, the part about it being buggy isn't a put-on. It was a version that came out a couple years ago and despite that there were warnings to not use it, to get hold of an earlier version, I couldn't find one. It din't do anything to my computer though, I just couldn't make it work. :-\ (the mod was Maciek, which is why I said all that  :D ).

I don't like to recommend stuff either, and I often hedge my statements with some variation of YMMV. Just seems prudent these days. :)
