2004-11-23 [ArchangelGabriel]: Lavasoft Ad-aware is good. My computers back up to speed after running that.
2005-03-14 [nokaredes]: Alright, I have a question. Can people with nomal privs delete Spyware/Adware off of a wiki, or does it need to be done 'professionall
2005-03-14 [ArchangelGabriel]: You can't get Adware on a wiki! people can advertise on their wikis.... But thats diffrent. Adware is a type of malicious code which is downloaded onto your computer to cause popups. Elftown can't support those programs. it must be your computer that has a problem if you get popups.
2005-03-14 [Ocean Dreaming]: [ArchangelGabriel], she's refering to the fact that certain adware/spyware programs will add HTML coding to wiki-pages. It happens on the Daily Poem a lot and we get to delete every letter it adds. It's too difficult to search for page versions, though or I'd give you an example. In any case, [nokaredes], if you just delete the html coding it added it should be perfectly fine. If you're unsure though, please let us know which wiki-page it is via Wiki Bosses or contact the page owner about the matter.
2005-03-14 [nokaredes]: Okay. Thank you. ")
2005-07-15 [Hilinia Marionel]: Does anyone know if the rumor I heard about avast! anitvirus by Alwil software is true? I heard that they actually infect your computer with viruses and if you try to uninstall it, it gives you a nasty virus.
2005-07-17 [ArchangelGabriel]: Its quite poissible. There are some unscruplus people out there. While i'm hear, may i suggest Spybot: Search And Destroy, as an amazing adware destroyer. tis very good. If you download it though, be sure to read the terms and conditions. They guy who wrote them has a sence of humor
2011-08-31 [Paul Doyle]: I suggested that link in the comments to another wiki a very long time ago. (I don't use Ad-Aware anymore, by the way.) Since I originally made that comment (about "deferring to the experts" here's the updated link.
Current link: http://free.la
2011-08-31 [Paul Doyle]: Heck with it *downloads Ad-Aware again*
2011-08-31 [Stephen]: Thanks, Paul!
2011-08-31 [Stephen]: Though, I'd still like to point out there's two different links that both mention getting ad-aware. xD
2011-08-31 [Stephen]: xD
I'm sorry, I wasn't trying to offend. I changed it because it seemed more logical to remove obsolete text then strike it out and point out it's outdated.
