Somehow I got infected by the “Ads by Online Browser Advertising” virus yesterday or today. There were pop-ups everywhere - even at Itchmo -so I knew there was something wrong with my computer. I did a virus scan and nothing came up. So I did a Google search and found some helpful information, but still could not get rid of it.

It was then that I remembered a bookmarked tool from another forum that I visit. I installed and ran that. It appears to have worked!

Here is the link to the page in the other forum. The forum uses the same software to run the forum as Itchmo does.

 I would like more information on this subject if anyone knows more details.
