This past monday I went to ebaums world to check it out. I got a server busy window popping up. I didnt click it for the fact that it could be some kind of pop up asking for permission to do something. Well minutes after that I started getting a tons of pop ups for all kinds of advertisements. I ended up having to disable my internet connection and check out my processes. I found that I had faceback.exe getmodule23.exe and a few other adware programs. I managed to get a copy of adaware and that took care of most of the adware programs, except for faceback and getmodule. I found out how to get rid of faceback, but the only thing I can't get rid of is this getmodule.

So far if I use IE I get some kind of script error, pop ups, and hidden windows being opened. I also still get the server busy window popping up.

Any help would much appreciated.

ebaum's has a good secuirty rating even tho they have been sued by everybody?

But all it takes is one bad banner ad and an unprotected computer(IE6 is horrible)

Let's run MBAM


No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
