Which virus scans have you done? Here are a few applications that are free for spyware and adware and also some online scanners for viruses.
Spybot S&D (download, check for updates, read the tutorial and scan often, it also does some blocking)
SpywareBlaster (a blocker only, download it, check for updates, enable it and leave it alone except for checking for updates occasionally)
SpywareGuard (similiar to SpywareBlaster but works in a different way and does not update as often for that reason.
Ad-Aware SE (a scanner, download, check for updates, read the directions and scan.
cwshredder (stand alone unit)(another small scanner for certain things, ALL other windows should be closed)
Also do an online scan at one or all of these.
On the first one, make sure you checkmark the box that says "autoclean"
Housecall (using IE with Active-X)
Housecall (all browsers using java)
Hi ya'll! I'm going crazy trying to figure out if this is a virus or if this can happen because of some tech-related problem. I'm a member of a public forum and I share a computer with my sister so obviously there are two different screen names.
About 2 ot 3 times this has been happening to me: I don't logg off the account (comp stays on) and I leave the site. When I come back say an hour or so later, another account is signed on. Now I know my sis hasn't signed on because i was there the whole time!
It's kind of freaking me out because I'm thinking someone is messingn with my head and if it's a virus it's a security risk?
So please anyone have a clue?? I've done virus scans and nothign comes up so it's even creepier. Thanks in advance.
Im running windows 98, internet exlorer 6
