How do I stop this popup from "linkbucks.com"?
I have the URL if needed.
submit inspector log and ask for assistance from Eset
ask for assistance from one of the volunteer sites
Thank you Cudni for helping.
I created the sysinspector log but couldn't figure out
how to submit it.
However I went into the advanced mode: web & email,
url address management and entered the two items.
Time will tell if that stopped the nonsense. They will probably
change one letter and send it again.
Adding the url to the url management did not stop the
If you have the SysInspector log saved somewhere you can easily find it, follow the link below to open a case with Customer Care and attach the log to your email.
Thank you for replying Dwomack.
I found the Sysinspector report but am not forwarding it because
it was generated when I was using the K-Meleon browser.
I am now using "IRON" and the two offending popups have not
occurred again. I still have the report if you want me to send it anyway.
Looks like a site that should be in your HOSTS File
Yep, it is included in the MVPS HOSTS file
There are two entries for it:
Thanks for the responses.
I tried messing with the hosts file once before and gave up.
The cause was another annoying popup called heebiesjeebies.
I am running windows 7 pro.
Looking at what you posted siljaline it just looks way to complicated
for me to handle.
I've had looks of experience and still.......
As noted to you already in this thread, what to do with a currently infected machine
I felt Brave today and install the MVPSs hosts file on my windows 7 pro computer. Things didn't quite work as directed from your post. The HOSTS.mvp file was never created. What I did was create a "jhosts" file in the C folder. Moved MVPS.zip there and unzipped it. Then I copied my HOSTS file to jhosts and renamed it to hosts.mvp. Then copied your hosts file to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc. So far things seem to be working ok.
In my old HOSTS file I had three entries called: freestaffwold.com,
FreeStuffWorld.com and FreeStaffWorld.com. I am really reluctant to make
any changes to your HOSTS file. What do you suggest?
Will next attempt the same thing on wiffies XP pro computer.
I'm sure the MVPS HOSTS file gets updated from time to time. Where does one go to get it?
Thank you much Siljaline.
