Free download to see my replies to my post?
« on: January 04, 2015, 07:18:48 AM »
     Hi All:

     When i attempt to read the replies to my posts I get a "free" download offer to download replies to my posts.

      I attempted to do this but I could not get past step 2 where I am told to click on run below.

      Since I have been burned on "free" offers on the internet, I am leery about this offer.  Is this free and must I do this in order to read the replies to my posts?

     How may I read the replies to my posts?

                                                                       Tia,

                                                                       Frank McCune

There is a problem with your computer. That what you are describing is not part of Stunt Hangar. Do not click the links.

Go here http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage and download free software and run it. It will find this issue and delete it.

There is a problem with your computer.
To be more blunt: there is some malicious software on your computer.

It has already tricked you into clicking things that you should NOT HAVE CLICKED!

Don't do anything with your computer before you get it scanned by some good Anti Virus software! Disconnect it from internet if you cannot get it fixed now. Robert's link will probably find you some software to fix this - as long as whatever you have allows the Anti Virus programs to run...

This computer I am on now has been in the shop.  The memory was completely wiped out.  Then was reloaded with Windows 7 and has been working great until a couple of weeks ago when the granddaughter was on it.  Now I get pop up s at time that I don't even ask for.  Some times I can go a while with out them popping up.   Can't get the granddaughter to admit to changing any thing and I won't change any thing or even down load any thing unless I ask my daughter first.  the computer is under her name.   Just now I have a page that I did not ask for when I clicked on the history line for Stunt Hanger.   I am typing on another page while the first one sits there waiting for me.  Guess I will have to get the lap top going I got for Christmas.

     Hello Robert et al:

     Have you used the remedy that you have suggested to me? If so, did it work and was it free? Do you know anybody who has used it?

    The reason that I am a bit paranoid is that I clicked on one of those popups that said  that your computer may be at risk  Click here for a free download.  I clicked for the free download and got into a bloody stickey wicket.  Yes, the download was free but it locked my computer on that popup and they wanted $280.00 dopllars to enable me to use my computer again. I was told that they embedded a virus in my startup program that would render my computer inactive until I paid the $280.00.  I investigated this as being a form of extorsion and was told that it was a leagal form of adverising?????????  Oh yes, the scum suggested that I could make four easy payments of $80.00 if I could not afford the full $280.00 cost. 

    In any case, I had to have my computer programmed with a new system $$$$$$$$$$$$$$  This is why I am nervous about clicking on any free offer!

   Thanks for all of the suggestions.

                                                                       Stay well,

                                                                       leomat

Well my son has my old lap top that a friend of his says can be restored.   The sight that locked it up says I have child pornography on it.   Would not even let me reboot.   There was a phone number I could call to get them to release the lap top if I sent them a payment of $300.00+ dollars.   Needless to say the lap top has been in the storage bag until yesterday when my son picked it up.    Just this computer cost the wife over $140.00 to get it cleaned up.

     Hi John:

     Your story sounds like what happened to me!

     I interpet this as nothing other than extortion! I was told that it was indeed leagal to do this as it is considered "advertising." This opinion of the law does not agree with my sense or right vs. wrong.

     Perhaps some leagal minds who frequent this site can offer some way that we can rid our lives of these crooks!

                                                                Stay well,

                                                                Frank McCune

Unplug computer and restart in safe mode and repair it from safe mode. If you do not know how to this then it is time to learn. Most of the time you can close  the browser by using  Ctrl,Alt,Del.   Run Malwarebytes from safe mode. Google is your friend to learn how to do these repairs. They are all free. :## HB~> HB~> HB~> HB~> HB~> HB~>

I found this site that will clear your computer. It is at the bottom of the article. Take your time and learn how to do the repair. Do not buy any software that offers to repair your computer as it will do these same steps or even add more problems to your computer.

It's really pretty easy to keep your computer clean..

1. Stay away from game and porn sites.
2. Never ever click a link in an email or open an attachment even if you know the person who sent it.
3. Tell all your friends not to send you those forwarded funny emails, you will just delete them without reading.

The only exceptions to emails is if you are expecting the link or attachment and were told beforehand was coming. Or you send the sender an email asking if he/she really sent you the link or attachment and what it is.

I haven't ran an anti-anything program for years and have been pretty good at avoiding getting hit.
