Hi Erfworld,

Erm, last week I visited your website (and OOTS) and got a virus. Nearly lost everything and was a nightmare to remove.

This week I got the same virus so now I know it has to be either OOTS or EW it's coming from.

I understand that not long ago the OOTS (or was it EW?) website was hacked into for a short time. It seems that whatever got in hasn't all been removed (or it invited in other stuff that hasn't been noticed).

I wish I could protect my computer but I use the library to connect to the internet (my home computer is not connected). I haven't been able to find a virus checker that works without connection to the internet. Have tried AVG, Norton and MS Security Essentials. Paying a monthly fee just to install a virus checker to protect your computer from what that same fee is paying for seems to me to be perverse. Our library's AVG license ran out a month ago and they're taking their sweet time renewing it.

Have posted the same on OOTS website.

    If you'd like to see an ego contest between testosterone (and probably genetically) challenged men then follow this thread on OOTS:

    Otherwise I didn't really get any help with this and don't know where the viruses came from. At least for now it's under control.

    Saw the same thing. It's one of the advertisers. I've also posted about it.
