Anubis, is this an edited image? I don't think you got it from the forum.

Of coarse this is an edited image, ELEN. We have a member called SomaHoliday, who's name is misused here by Anubis_AF.

If that image is real, there are some spyware programs that watch what you do and whenever a keyword like that appears it will change the color a bit, make a link out of it and when you mouse over it pops up a balloon like that with details.

Joseph

That phenomenon is used on http://www.tomshardware.com/site/intellitxt.html .
Laracroft8290, could that technique hitchhike when you're browsing this forum? :confused:
I mean, like on Tom's Hardware Guide, it is implemented in the site. Have you ever seen spyware doing this from your computer?

Might be worth seeing if an Object has been installed into the browser.....

Tools > Internet Options >

Pick Settings (Temporary Internet files), Click on View Objects.

This will open a folder displaying all the installed objects. Check to see if any look a bit iffy by pressing Right mouse on the object and selecting Properties. You will see waht it is and what web address it came from.

I had those things appear when I had Hotbar (possibly worst spyware ever!), so it must be it.
BTW,soma is a kind of a drug,that's why that appeared http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif

I'm totally ignorant regarding the tech things, and that's why I wanted to make sure if this image was edited. It appears it is not, and since the forum does not appear things like that (*relief*), you (Anubis) should listen to the techies http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Hmm.. the word "Gold" is underlined. What program do you use for removing spyware?

Thorn
09-10-04, 16:20
Saw this and thought it was interesting. How come the underlines don't match? I've heard of key loggers and such but nothing like this.

I downloaded it, and it's scanning now ...

*The Edit Version: It found 31 spyware programs. But, unfortunately, I still see the ads on the site.

Ad-Aware (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/) and Spybot Search an Destroy (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html) are the tools you need (both) to get rid of all spyware. ;)

Anubis_AF
09-10-04, 20:57
I had Spybot Search an Destroy, it's not that good.

Thorn
09-10-04, 21:10
Did you find anything Anubis??? :confused:

SYS
09-10-04, 22:20
...a voice from the darkness.....

Anubis, I had the similar problems earlier: some words, like "games" and "travel" were always "linked". I hated that, and Ad-Aware didn't help. But later it disappeared, and I think it happened after I run Trend Micro's Online Virus Scan (http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp), what found some malwares on my system... :eek: Perhaps You have a "hijack trojan", like I had...

You could also make a screenshot about Your running processes (CTRL+ALT+DEL) to let us see if You have something strange in the memory... One more tip: select "Run..." from Start Menu, and type "msconfig"..then click on the last tab and make a screenshot about that to let us see what programs start right when Windows is starting...

SYS "Congratulations Ms Croft. You are positively Amazonian."

Ad-Aware (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/) and Spybot Search and Destroy (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html) latest versions with all the latest updates, and of course a good antivirusscanner and firewall, -of course with the latest updates, otherwise indeed they can't do the job, Anubis.
What SYS says is a good suggestion (Trend Micro Online) but still you will be a bit late, because if you have a trojan, it will find it, and then you'll have to remove it with a tool which hopefully Trend Micro will provide. If they find the trojan, plus have the anti-dote, the other antivirus-, firewall- and anti spybot programs (like McAfee, Kaspersky, Norton, Panda, Antivir, ZoneAlarm, Spybot Search & Destroy, AdAware, etc. etc.) surely could have done that too provided they were updated well with the latest definitions.

Ad-aware finds pretty much everything harmfull on your computer. Trojan,ads,spyware,you name it, it's all in the results if you have it.

Anubis_AF
10-10-04, 10:06
Yes I did, and I posted it THORN http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif . I found more than 31 spywares. But I still see the ads on this site. Is that allowed for them to advertise here?

No, of course they are not allowed, Anubis. It's on your pc only. So, what did you do with those 31 items, removed them i hope (quarantaine is not enough). Also, empty your Internet Explorer History.

Rosay

And click Start / Run... type in
msconfig
click OK.
On the startup items, check off suspect items. If you are unsure, just show us a printscreen of what you have there.
If you would use latest versions of Ad-AwareSE and Spybot S & D, they would remove ervery string in the registry related to the malware.
It is also best, to shut off "System Restore" so that it empties its archive (which may be contaminated also), and after you cleaned your Windows successfully, activate System Restore again.

Anubis_AF
10-10-04, 11:21
OK Thanks. I deleted them.
