    Ruby Rails suddenly appeared on my computer yesterday. I didn't download, don't really know what it is & don't want it. When I'm on Blurb Booksmart Forum, the Ruby Rails site keeps popping up every time I go to a new topic. I'm not into software development; just want my computer to work w/o complications and new things being added w/o my knowledge. Can anyone tell me how to take this off my computer?:mad:

    have you tried checking under add/remove programs?

    Either that, or try revo uninstaller.

    Yes I did. It's not listed in my Programs list unless it's under a name I don't know.

    I have the screen shot but don't know how to send it to you. Tried Search but nothing.

    just attach it to your post. Click on the 'go advanced' button and then the paperclip.

    Here it it. So far it's only popping up when I'm on Blurb Booksmart site in the Forum. I click on a thread in the forum, the Ruby Rails pops up. I click on Back arrow, reclick on the thread a second time, Ruby Rails does not pop up until I click on a new thread.

    I'm not sure the screenshot is here. I don't see anything. I uploaded it.

    The problem has only appeared in the Blurb Booksmart site. I was just on the site and someone else has the same problem. It would seem to be their problem & the techies are supposedly working on fixing it.

    Problem seems to be fixed. It hasn't happened again to me and no new comments about it in Blurb Forum. I still don't know what Ruby Rails is.

    Ruby on Rails is a web development platform. This is not something loaded on your computer; instead this is an error message you are seeing from the Blurb Forum website.
