Pop ups Whilst in pandys
Posted 27 January 2004 - 04:54 PM
I was wondering in anyone else was having this, as I've never had pop ups whilst in Pandys before, but unfortunatly I can't think of any where else I have given my email to!

As for spam...I got loads and loads today because of the new worm out there. Even if you are really careful who gets your address, if someone who has you in their address book or outgoing mail folders becomes infected, it can be sent to you, or to mass-address lists used to send spam.
I hope this helps!

I don't think the problem is from Pandy's though. Worms shouldn't be able to access the email list as it is encrypted. However, they can access individual's address books.
When I was having pop-ups (on pandy's and yahoo) I used Spybot, which I got here for free: http://reviews.cnet....html?tag=search
It took care of the problem.
My system also had a virus, and I bought McAfee virus protection (it was only $10 with a rebate!) and took care of that one too.
