A concern

4 posts in this topic

Not sure exactly where to put this.

 

Lately I have been getting a lot of flash crashes and even some auto-links on this page. I'm not here to point any fingers, just to report what I see as a possible problem.

 

And my computer has eset and spybot active 100% and I run weekly scans, so it's not on my end.

 

Thanks

Just thinking aloud here, but it may be something that got downloaded along with something else, as I had something similar happen to me.  Go through your Program Files (C:\Program Files and C:\Program Files (x86), if you have both sets (yours might be slightly different) you'll want to go through both) and look for any folder that you didn't explicitly download/extract to that location.  If you don't know why you have a folder, it's likely that it was a part of a hidden download and contains what is doing this.  There should be a file that uninstalls the program, which should be the end of your problem.  If not, well, I tried.  I can't remember the name of what I had off the top of my head, but after uninstalling it I haven't had any issues.

Could you please tell me from which country you are browsing from and what browsers you are using? There can be a lot of different problems with ads, but crashing flash player is not one I have heard of yet.

Spybot misses a ton of stuff and often gives false negatives and positives. An auto link ad is 99.999% of the time related to malware/adware. I would suggest doing what the first responder suggested and go through files manually
