    They track where you've been. Look at the history on your computer, and if you or anyone else using your computer has been to a porn site, then that site has sold you name, address etc. to everyone (or almost everyone else) who has a prom site.

    I assume that Rob has registered FerrariChat as a Trademark. He might be able to serve a cease and desist letter on the e-mail senders and threaten a trademark/false-designation-of-origin suit.

    yup....I clicked on the thread best Bond babes and it took me directly to a porn site. Next thing i know i'm playing pop-up tag..girl friend none to happy. The funny thing is it seemed to have added a file to my "C" drive. The file is called Thwunk_16,and Thwunk_32,and i also have this Taskman thing. Everytime I delete it form the C drive it comes right back as soon as I delete it. I can watch it reapper in a matter of seconds. How the heck do i get rid of this? I would suggest to any of you that are having this problem to scan your computer for hidden files/Spywere.

    Rob, its from TestShootDotCom I believe.. I asked him to send me the pictures that he couldn't post (as you did) in Allans shaving thread and he posted something to the extent that he put us on his mailing list..

    I've been trying for years to get "bombed" with porn and all I get is a little lightheaded afterwards. Damn.

    Rob, did you ask to be put on Tom's email list?

    That might make sense. Except I asked to be on the list and I never got anything.

    There's some pretty advanced bots that will invade your computer. Some like tbakowsky that will link you to another site while browsing another and then some that will replace certain text with other text. You could be typing a message or writing a letter to your mom and if you type the word girl, it might change it to a porn link.

    It's some type of virus or bot, do a search for anti spyware tools. I did a scan awhile back and it found like 60 things. Trick is picking what to get rid of and what you need. Good spyware tools will tell you.

    Sounds like that has worked so far, but usually that is a NO NO because that lets them know you're actually reading it. For about two weeks a couple years ago I did that unsubscribe thing for every spam I got, well a month later I was getting 4 times as much spam.

    I use Ad-Aware (not ada-ware) http://lavasoft.element5.com/purchase/

    and

    SpyBot Search & Destroy
    http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=home

    Both free, but you can purchase a more powerful version of Ad-Aware or make donations to the S&D author.

    I run every couple of days. I delete EVERYTHING they find. No problems from that.
