    Why is it that every time I try to make a new post or even respond to another post I am getting messages from my browser saying Malware/spyware is ahead and that www.lazydessis.com is trying to put malware on my computer from this website??

    Wtf finheaven?!?!? I mean there are already a lot of advertisements, and the fact that people donate to this site and pay money just to be a vip member? How is there also spyware now?!?!?

    i mean if I have to I will gladly donate a few dollars to continue using this awesome website, but I'm a little ticked off that it seems you guys now have deals with companies that put spyware on your computer behind your back?!?

    Can you post a screenshot of what you're seeing?

    Which browser are you using? What virus protection are you running?

    I've logged in with ads and I'm not had any problems. Like JCane said, need your browser info and a screenshot when it happens so we can find out if it's one of our ads or not.

    browser is google chrome and I will post a screen shot the next time it happens. to be honest I trusted this site and after the 5'th or 6'th time of it stopping me from posting a new thread I clicked on "continue at your own risk"

    I know the website it referred to was www.lazydessis.com

    I understand, and we're trying to help you by determining whether it is coming from our site and if so, where it is coming from. I've logged in using Chrome and haven't seen it, so a screenshot will be helpful. Thanks!

    So if you are using Chrome, I trust you have Ad blocker extensions in place? Those go a long way to preventing unwanted crap getting into your computer.

    I do. While using my phone to visit the site while I'm not busy. Thanks for asking an irrelevant question. Now stop messing up your work computer :lol: with your guilty conscience.

    That's good to know, I was worried about you. What would I have a guilty conscience for?

    Your false concern amuses me. I like how when I pegged you for using your work computer to access this site you said "You don't work?" Welcome to 2013 Junc. I'm sure you're assuming we all have Internet Explorer tabs open on FH and TGG 8/5 (not 24/7 since you only share your wonderful company and expert anlysis during business hours). Either your company will limit the sites you access as a way of keeping unwanted junk off their computer or you will fill your work computer with adware and then they will investigate where it came from. Unless you work for yourself in that case, is business so bad you can't afford a cell phone? Now I'm worried about you Junc... I hope you don't get caught on this site 8/5 and canned or if you work independent I hope business isn't so bad you can only afford a rotary phone. Poor Junc....

    I wouldn't worry about me but thank you for your concern. I love when people can't keep up in debates son they have to bring up nonsense to deflect.

    I feel bad for you that you would root for something like that for someone you don't even know. You have some issues you need to work out besides your lack of football knowledge.

    Not rooting for anything. If you're employed by a company who gives a half a damn about their equipment you're being monitored. Smart people have taken their non work surfing (sorry that includes FH) "offline" so to speak. This isn't a football related discussion even though this is a football forum. I'm merely giving suggestions in the questions and suggestions section. Keep up...
