Been away the past few days testing a theory...

I recently had issues with my PC (Win 7 Home premium, Firefox and AVG anti-virus installed) and they seem to be coming from here.

What happens is first off, when I log in the page refreshes twice rapidly (never did before)....and most troubling....after I restart my computer after visiting here Windows restarts, I get a "preparing your desktop" message....then my desktop comes up with a blank black background, most of my icons are missing and some files don't show up with the sidebar or "My Computer".

The only way to cure it is to run a system restore from days before.

Anti-virus and TDSS Killer find nothing...


I took a break from here and had no issues...we'll see what happens after this visit.
Anyone else having problems of any kind lately?

No issues here. I run Windows 7 with the following software:

-AVG
-Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

and also Google Chrome with these extensions:

-AdBlock Plus
-Do Not Track Me
- World of Trust

Never ever have had an issue, and I visit some really ****ed up p0rn sites.

chrome with script safe protects you from the malware. many bb's are infected with server side malware, and internet exploder is not good to use on them.

I'm running win 7. no issues.

The OP reported the possibility of an issue 3 MONTHS ago.

I am not finding any sort of issue with the site either logged in or out even after running the site through multiple tests.

maybe it's like one of those toxic "coctails" - the combination of p0rn and electrical talk makes the computer go haywire. The OP didn't say what kind of p0rn sites he had been to though. At any rate, I don't guess that Grasshopper and Eric visit the same p0rn sites, but I agree with Erics chrome + adblock, cause the scriiptsafe works for me - no issues ever.

Have had no problems with the site since the OP I made 3 months ago.

May have been an issue with one of the updates I made at that time.

That said, I'm closing my own thread. :)
