therapy23 OK
Maybe it is just slow.

I got a couple of emails just now. From threads replied to yesterday.

Did that. See above post. (yesterday)

Thanks for the non-speech.

Again - it is only here.

It might not help, either. Here's why:

Most MS-Win users run with Administrator privileges. This is the same as operating as "root" on a Unix system. It gives whomever is running, and whatever they're running, free reign over the system to read, write, create, delete, modify whatever desired--incl. the files that make up the system, itself. So really good virus', worms and Trojans modify parts of the system in such a manner so as to hide themselves from anti-malware scanners or even fake updates to them.

The only two certain ways to clean a system are:
  1. "Nuke and pave": Reformat the drive and re-install from scratch. Any backed-up data you wish to restore must be scanned by a competent and up-to-date scanner before being returned to the re-virginized system.
  2. Scan the MS-Win partition from outside it. I boot from a Linux "live" CD and run an updated copy of ClamAV against the MS-Win partition.
That being said: What will often work, but is far from guaranteed, is to reboot the system into safe mode with networking, get updated versions of multiple anti-malware programs, and delouse the system from there.

therapy23 Today no email messages.

A while back another forum had the same problem and I only found out about it when a mod looked at the returned mail from my ISP and sent me the message. I then had the ability to contact my ISP and have their automatic block removed.

TLombardi Are you sure you don't have a virus? Some of the symptoms you describe can be attributed to viruses. If you have a top tier antivirus program, update the definitions and run a scan. If you don't have a top tier antivirus program, download Malwarebytes and run a scan. It couldn't hurt.

Agreed.
I don't know how the electrons flow.
I only know it only happens here.

Sorry to hear you're still having problems, but on this one....

Maybe Semi Jim or admin can confirm/deny that idea.....

No other sites have the same problem and the machine and the browser are the same.

Sorry, I just had to keep complaining cause I like the place and all but tire easily and go elsewhere.

It ain't the browser.

I am noticing some names on other sites from here more than before.

I wonder why.......

I understand it is free and you get what you pay for but being the impatient sort might have - no that isn't it at all - Something is wrong with the site.

Sorry, can't take it.
