    Hi guys.

    As you can see from my thread title, I quite frequently get messages from unknown people (most probably spam, as their emails are just random letters) talking about going to dating sites and such. An example of a message would be this:

    wqwkoctz says:
    Hi, i waited for you the other day so we could chat, anyway
    can you visit me at my website so i can show u a few things

    http://findahotdate.net


    I did not, and will not click the links, as they are most probably adware/malware filled, but I was wondering if anybody knew how to tackle this problem?

    Regards,
    poopehz

    Download hijack this from the link below.Please do this. Click here:

    http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe

    to download HijackThis. Click scan and save a logfile, then post it here so
    we can take a look at it for you. Don't click fix on anything in hijack this
    as most of the files are legitimate.

    I don't thinkt he HJT log will do much because I have posted it before for other reasons and no-one seemed to pick anything up.

    your log is clean.

    If you frequent chat rooms and use these types of programs etc then you are open to this type of advertising, most of it is harmless but some of it can be malicious.

    You should ignore these messages and any links they contian and do not click them or accept any images etc as they may contain viruses!

    Yup. Ok thanks for that. I was just wondering how someone would have gotten a hold of my email and managed to spread it around... I never had it before. Only recently for the past month or 2, I've been getting them...

    Anyway, thanks for your help.
