Wtf is this? I get it every time I go on a filesnetwork site. It's Gator so it sounds dodgey. Am I the only one getting it? By just reading what it does, it sounds like spyware!

yes it is so dont click yes. i am not getting it but i know its not good so dont get it. try a program like spybot or a add removal program, what they do is search the computer and will give you a choice off all the bad add ware so you can take it off.it also explains what it is and how you get it.

right what a gator is: you will pick it up when surfing the net. and it basically sends information to company's who then make ad's pop up when u go on to a competators or rival's web site. you were getting the install box which i guess if you click yes you would get loads of ads.

Thanks Fez, I already have Ad-aware. So I try to keep myself clean of spyware. It's off-putting, what other things have filesnetwork given me?

Just checked my temp internet and I have a gator cookie :uhm: , and one at adworldnetwork that were both last accessed 2 mins ago.:smack:

And when I go to a new page on sof2files I get a window that appears in my tastbar, but I can't see it on my screen, it disappears after a few secs.
