Anyone seen this yet??

Looks familiar....

"Did you know that there is a 90% chance that someone is spying on you … at this very moment?"

And the Red Graph bar underneath!!

http://www.adware-remover.net/

Have had the purveyor of this sneaking around at Computer Cops. I don't have a second PC on which to try the free scan or download the program. It smells, though.

Thoughts, please.

All new antispyware products have to be looked at with suspicion these days since there are so many fake ones. This one does have a support forum... though there isn't much there. Any program that scans for free but needs money to fix what it finds is starting off on a really bad foot in my book.

Hi Nick,

Any chance that one of you will be taking a closer look at this program; maybe evaluating it?

I don't like the look of it as it's advertising is way too much like that of other junk out there. If l had a second PC, i'd try it out for myself. Right now though, l can't. Already lost my part share in a web site and all records and backups due to hackers destroying everything.

I am, though, on the tail of this guy and another over at CCSP as they're both peddling 'Professional' computer services.

Be grateful for any info we might share about this and any other stuff out there, basically; anything for the common good.

I tried it on my work pc, it kept crashing when it finished scanning,
a stack overflow error popped up a couple times, otherwise it just exited without me being able to see the details of the 400+ items it supposedly found.

maybe I should ask for assistance in their support forum? Rolling Eyes

will try it again on a different pc shortly

if they were legit they wouldnt have a casino ad in their page would they ?

Maybe I'm just too suspicious , but it looks a lot like the rest of the Ad-Aware / Spybot ripoff web pages to me.

I can't make an honest judgement on the programs ability to remove spyware if it keeps crashing before the scan is finished.... Rolling Eyes

I must have some really bad luck,
or I use some really infected pc's Shocked ,
or this program just isn't written very well Razz




I'd better go buy the program to figure out what's really going on... Liar

LOL, Cracks me up. The Ahem, 'Author' has been creeping around at CCSP seeking info. He's told Mrs Wabbit that he wants to know what the CLISD's are and....are they all bad? Shocked I give up.

He then goes on to say he's trying to develop the worlds most efficient and sophisticated Spyware scanner/detector/remover.

I have no credibility limit, it being zero, so can't see it working for me somehow. Rolling Eyes

Hello,

I am looking to exchange links with other casino/gambling webmasters. I would prefer to only link to sites listed in search engines though please. I have just paid to have my site guaranteed to be listed in all major search engines within 3 days (and will be refreshed every 48hrs for 12 months). If your link is on my site then it will be crawled regularly by the search engine spiders!

If you are interested please place a link on your site:
Title - StarLuck Online Casino - 100% bonus
url - www.best-casino-ever.com

and then email me with the page my site is linked to and the title and url of your link. I will then place your link on my www.best-casino-ever.com/links.html page within 24 hrs.

Many Thanks

Ashley Russell

Look like they were into cheap done websites and gambling..
Would you trust security software from an owner that deals in online gambling?

SCAMWARE!

Didn't catch that one but I now can add even more domains and IP's

jackpot.kaphost.com:64.91.234.2
kaphost.com:69.22.169.139 email gamingtoolz.com
gamingtoolz.com:69.22.169.139

All the whois is messy and not all filled in. Much like some of the CWS and porn sites.


And a big thanky to Radio for giving the webhelper yet another new tooltoy to play with. I am probably the only one except for maybe radio that has an almost complete list of all the whois servers in the world to work from. Smile

Is it permissible for me to point others to take a look at this thread? By others, l mean those from other forums.


Or, may l quote that which webhelper has posted, please?


I guess l could just do it but, would prefer to have your permission.

TIA

Hi Mariner, yes it is quite alright to quote my writings or to link to this or other postings. The more the information gets to those that don't come here or other sites I write on the more users will be informed and then can make their own minds up on what they want instead of getting surprised or scammed out of their money without knowing there are better alternatives to be had.

Hi webhelper,

Thank you for your co-operation. I did not wish to throw it open without consulting and obtaining your permissions first.

Will post it in 'whitespace' only for consideration by Admin, so, it will go no further. Anything that may go into open forum will be edited to suit.

Regards,

Richard
