Hi. I just posted my problem, and I was browsing the other posts when Spybot informed me they had blocked AvenueA, or something like that. Then my pc froze on a white screen. At the bottom I noticed it said Bad URL and I saw the words "tribalfusion", which I know is adware. I closed out the browser and deleted cookies. This happened right after I clicked on a post here, and no other windows were open, so I ran a little experiment.

I opened the cookies, then I went to the suspected post, and Voila!, the tribalfusion cookie appeared immediately. The post is (sitcom123 Posted: Apr 24 2005, 03:37 AM) Can anyone explain?

Thanks,

Carolyn

This is too weird. I went to my own post and Spybot warned me again about blocking AvenueA, and then another ad cookie appeared. Each time I clicked on my own post, Spybot blocked AvenueA again. I hope I'm not causing problems for this forum, but I'd sure like to know what's happening!
