Yep, the bar is raised for the biggest malware install out there yet again. Words fail me with this one - dont have the .net framework on your PC to utilise the adware makers technology? No problem, they'll download it for you - without you knowing.

Problem is, it's sixtyfive megabytes in size...

Do yourself a favour and block anything from iowrestling.com, and broadcastpc.tv.

Just throw the domains into whatever domain-blocking software you use - anything from HOSTS files to dedicated software :thumbsup:

I'm afraid that I do not have any domain-blocking software.
That I know of anyway.

Will the Hosts File in Spybot work? I do not have it checked. But since it is available. How do I use it for this?

I haven't a clue. :thumbsup:

Haven't used the Spybot one, but the below link should help:

http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

Worth noting though that the wrestling site is simply the place the initial ad was served from - the actual ad suppliers that triggers the install could effectively come from anywhere if they move it around.
