View Full Version : adware blocked

About 2 hours ago I started to get adware blocker running using shaw secure. I let the program remove the adware which was listed as smarttad.d. About the 4th time the program removed the adware the program just ran endlessly without stopping. I did a computer scan and removed 1 malware item but now I am having the same problem. The strange part is that this adware only pops up when I try to acces sootoday.com, soonews.ca and usedsoo.com. This has never happened before and I was wondering if anyone else using shawsecure has this problem.

I am going to call shaw back and see what they recomend next after the computer scan which didnt eliminate the problem.

Just talked to shaw and they seem to be aware of some problem they are having with adware smarttad.d and java script on some websites - I have no idea what this means but they say ignore it and they are working on it.

If I were you I would download AVG free. I was talking to a tech some time ago and he says shaws adware can bug up your machine.
