    Heyya Noyb....and happy new year. :)

    So what's the deal in that thread? I'm at work, so I have an extremely stripped down version of the site, and may be missing something here.

    How does the reader know if it's a link I've posted .. or Spam ...
    I assume this is coming from TSG

    I'm using Firefox and I don't see that, even with Adblock Plus disabled for TSG.

    In your image, it doesn't look like you're using a recent version of Firefox. Which one is it?

    It was updated .... I'm now on a backup computer ... rebuilt yesterday, fully updated and no ads.
    Going to mark this solved .. looks like my problems are elsewhere.

    Malwarebytes, SuperAntispyware & AVG couldn't see it ... Didn't show in WinPatrol .. and Comodo didn't stop it (whitelisted?)
    I was ready to just rewrite my main SSD with a fresh install ... that only takes me a few minutes ... Think I'll wait on the new OS for awhile

    That's because it's "supposed" to be a legitimate software.

    Maybe AdwCleaner would pick it up, but I doubt it.
