Anonymous said: hi! those orange highlighted and underlined words on your webbrowser means you might have a virus or malware! you should run some virus and malware scans.
You are a sweetheart! Thank you!
I do have scans going but they seem to not care about those at all XP
I asked and was told they are just links to ads and other virus and as long as I don’t click on them they are harmless. :?
But as soon as I get play money I’ll definitely get them looked into by a professional since I’m decent enough to do simple things but complex problems leave me with a headache XP
Thank you so much for telling me though! I really appreciate it! <3
I’m sure you’d rather leave it to a professional but these types of things aren’t necessarily SUPER BAD or at all hard to deal with. You’re much better off learning to take care of the problem yourself than forking out shit tones of money for someone to literally spend like 10 minutes installing a program that’ll find it and delete it for them.
'u' Personally I use AVG to deal with most of my problems, but I also have [AVG] PC Tune Up, Advanced Uninstaller Pro and Malwarebytes. Usually it’s pretty easy to find the culpret, if your current scanner can’t seem to find it thats sort of worrying because it’ll essentially be leaving you prone to getting that and possibly others in the future. It’s also generally NOT a good idea to mix virus protections together, AVG is my main protection. PC tune up gets rid of excess files, Malwarebytes I only run when I need to and is more or less malware/spyware specific and AUP is there for registry cleaning, program deletion and a bunch of other stuff.
Honestly if AVG or Malwarebytes [or your usual protection] cant find it and deal with it THEN you might want to consider going to someone else xD
What that is tends to be harmless, but then you also don’t know what it’s doing in the background :x They’re the sort of annoying piece of shit that either gets forcefully installed or you forgot to uncheck when installing a program from online. What it is is typically Adware [a type of Malware] bundled in with other problems that you need to make sure you uncheck. What it does is highlight random words and cause them to become links to other pages, advertising for things in a sense and trying to lure you in to various bad pages either by accident or your own interest.
So it could be that the adware is monitoring what sort of things you like, places you go etc and reporting it to somewhere [in which case it would be known as Spyware]
Oh wow thank you!
So I check/read up on and I had just been using the software that came with the laptop which turns out is not that great….shouldn’t’ be as surprised as I am honestly.
Then I went to AVG’s website and did you know you can talk with someone before you even purchase anything???? They took a look and where like “it’s not super bad but it could become bad. However, our packet can take care of it no problem!”
Also, the packet is what my Dad uses at home (I just never really thought about having to get protect for my laptop since it come with a setup. Silly me) So I’m going to take your advice, get AVG and if that doesn’t take care of it they told me they could “remotely access my laptop and take care of it personally free of charge” since they had told my their program could get rid of it.
Thank you for looking out for me! XD I’m gonna go play with AVG and hopefully get those things off my screen! Thanks for the advice!
Yyyyyeah honestly that stuff never tends to be great. I actually had a free copy of Norton Antivirus with my laptop but I laughed myself to death and installed AVG Free instead. People have their preferences I’m sure? But just about anyone will tell you Norton among a few others are just..bad.
I haven’t heard anything about AVG offering stuff like that and it sound only sliiiightly shady to me. - Having a quick look I can’t immediately see anything about live chats. So just make sure THIS is the website you’re using. And of course set it to whatever your appropriate region is, since thats the UK version. [button is top right]
You don’t even have to purchase AVG if you don’t want! They have a Free version that its FANTASTIC, however the full version offers a whole lot more than just standard protection and makes maintaining your PC super easy. Its also honestly not that expensive atall, and I purchased it at the start of this year. I can always get you screenies and explain features if it helps. The Free version is super easy to use, just set it up to do a whole PC scan [ you can do individual parts/drives/folders, but you’re better off just doing the whole thing ;U ]. I’ve been using AVG since I found it - it’s all we use here now.As someone who builds his own PCs my dads been through countless different antivirus programs XD And we eventually stuck with this as the best.
You guys take such good care of me! XP
If you go to support and click personal at the bottom there is a Chat with us option and they talk to you XD The whole remotely fix it if it doesn’t fix it when you install is like an extra feature you can add on for a fee. (sorry if I made it sound shady. I sometimes forget how things can sound over the internet and that you can’t hear my voice or see my hand movements for better explanation XP)
I super glad though to hear the free one isn’t crap! Maybe I’ll start with the free one and if that doesn’t work then get the big bundle set XP
And if I have any questions I will definitely ask you! Thank you so much for all your help darling! You are the best! XD
