jj.loved00 request

Post by demoncurrie on Mon 20 Feb 2012, 12:01 am

First topic message reminder :

I am a Yahoo email user. When this is open (at work or at home) I get a request in a popup box as follows:
"jj.loved00 would like to add you to her Online Contacts List. Accept/Decline".
I always just close the box and ignore the request.

I presume this is some kind of virus request. How can I get rid of it?
Thanks.

I have not yet downloaded WOT, Spywareblaster or Spybots. Do any of them interfere with McAfee (or vice versa)? If so, what do you recommend? Is McAfee worth paying for?!

No. They won't interfere. As for McAfee, keep it until your subscription runs out then download and install MicroSoft Security Essentials.

Hi again! I had some McAfee problems, viz, MCShield was hogging all my CPU. Eventually McAfee appear to have solved that problem (although it happened once yeaterday - hopefully a one off.
In checking for that problem, I had removed all the tools that you recommended here.
In trying to re-install, I am failing to install WOT. It gets stuck after the wizrd has run, displaying Connect and then [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
When I subsequently remove WOT, it displays what might be text, but gets displayed as a series of vertical rectangles.
WOT - sorry for pun - should I do?

I know WOT I would do; contact them and tell them about your problem.

Hi again; apologies for teh long dealy. I did manage to get WOT installed eventually. It did appear to impact on performance; so I've disabled it for the moment. But I think I should close this thread until I check things out.
Thanks for all the help again!
