  • I think I picked up a virus in Yoma

    shortly after updating all my file in Yoma today, i got trojan disguised as a virus proctection program called Malware Defense, it keeps trying to delete my McAFee Security and is constantly reinstalling itself after i uninstall it, i ran a Quick Scan but that didnt pick up anything so im in the process of a full scan

    Yoma will only give you viruses if the host you're syncing from does.

      i figured out the problem, it that stupid Windows Security, they make false reports of viruses getting into your computer so that you download their "FREE Software" which is actually a virus itself, so they send you adds to go buy their real virus protection program so that ull go buy it, its happened a few times b4, but usually only when i visit this site, must just be a coincident

            You might have easily picked it up somewhere else, and it only shows up periodically. Another wild guess is one of the ads here.

              thats most likely the case, it just scares me that the 3 times its happened to this computer i was on this site, afterwards ill be scared to go on here for a couple days

                I think it is one of this site's ads. I got something similar a few weeks ago. Abode reader popped up and said something. Next thing I know, my computer is opening a "pdf" but it was really installing a virus. The next time I turned my computer on, I had a virus. I just reinstalled windows and that fixed it.

                  well theres other ways to fix it without reinstalling windows, its a pain in the ass and very time consuming

                    Just do a system restore. Thats seems to work wonders for me

                      I was just messing with you man.

                      It is possible to remove that without a restore, but you'll end up spending almost as long as you would if you were to just do a restore.

                      A restore might boost your performance a little and eliminate junk that has a tendency to accumulate in ones system.

                      Good luck.

                        Many ways to block them... One of the reasons I use Opera is the easiness of doing that on it: Right-click anywhere, click "Block content", click on whatever it is you want to block and click "ok". Done, no more ads from that particular source.
