    I would but he's off the grid.
    He used to connect to my computer with a program he'd get me to install and fix any problems from his place.
    Every other program works ok, only AVF has a problem.
    I'm hopeless with computer problems.

    I am far from an expert, but what about using a different browser... if you currently use Firefox.. keep it closed and use google chrome or god forbid even Internet Explorer.. that way you can tell if it is a specific browser problem on this site only.. when swapping browsers, do not import any settings.. just use it fresh clean and unpolluted... and see what happens... if it works .. then maybe delete your original browser.. run CCleaner.. reboot.. and then try to reinstall your original browser.. sounds like you have picked up something....

    or failing that.. if it does not intimidate you too much .. maybe have a look at your system restore points in windows.. and roll back to a date when you KNOW that you did not have any problems... Good luck !

    Failing that, waiting for Style..or maybe Mr Fixit.. only he has wounded himself ..... there must be others here that might be able to help ...

    Thanks guys I appreciate your suggestions but I am computer illiterate and will screw it up if I try something complicated.
    I'll try chrome first and see if it's any different.

    The most likely malware you would have got from here is deloton.com so if you di a search for deloton.com removal you should get some things to try.

    Interestingly it looks like someone has patched the exploit that allowed the malware/adware to be installed here but didn't actually remove the scripts dishing up the ads...fookin odd.

    disley, download and run malwarebytes hopefully that will find and remove the virus, if running firefox install uBlock Origin add-on, that should block all the pop ups on this forum. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ublock-origin/
    Hitman Pro is another good tool for removing virus ,free for 30 days https://www.techspot.com/downloads/1278-hitman-pro.html
