Is anyone else in the mist of posting getting erased by pop-ups? I keep getting the vacume cleaner guy.

If it is me, I will run some scans. Please let me know if others are having this problem.

I have never had any popups on this forum, but I am currently running Mozilla, and it does a fairly good job blocking popups...

Nope, no pop ups either at home or at work....I think we have blockers at work and I have one at home.

OK. I ran a scan while we went out for dinner tonight. Hope this will help. Thank for directing the problem back to me to fix it. Have a good new year every one. :)

I get no popups on here, but then I run Safari. I don't get stuff like that on a Mac.

I got a new notebook computer yesterday, installed the (included) trial version of McAfree - and just after I read the "spammer" thread here, I got the Orick pop-up.

Well, there's one claim that the guy can't make for his products: that they can restore hair. :P

Nope! Never have! But I have macafee and it blocks all popups! Even pages that I am trying to open if they are a link!

I have not seen any popups on this site, its possible your machine is infected with spyware/etc, you should get one of the good scanners like...

Spy Bot Search and Destroy

Ad-Aware

There are others, including an MS one, but those two work best in my experence. Others will have thier own opinions of course. :D

I hear what you're saying, but these things work differently on different systems - sometimes well enough, and other times they cause disasters, which happened to my Dell Windows ME desktop on Tuesday. I then screwed up and deleted Windows to do a reinstall, by disc, but I should not have deleted the "restore" dates.

I use Spybot, Ad Aware, Spyware Doctor, Spywareblaster, and Norton on my 5 year-old Dell/Windows ME rig, but when you do updates for Windows, Norton, etc,. they conflict with each other on Windows ME.

I bought a new notebook two days ago - I can't wait for the desktop repairs right now.

This new notebook, my first, is a Toshiba M45-S169. I'm enjoying it very much, and DVD's play great - the screen is 15.4 inches, rectangular, and very compatable with "widescreen" movie disks. For under a thousand bucks, this is the type of machine to get - at least for first-time "laptop" buyers like myself. There are other good ones from various manufacturers as well, but I'm happy so far. I usually have better-than-average luck with all kinds of electronics.

I have American-built tube stereo equipment (Fisher, Scott, EICO, etc.) from the 50's and early 60's that still works and, for sound quality, blows away the best equipment made today - both foreign AND fine American high-end gear. Most everything else today is disposable, such as TV's and most "digital" equipment, and it's a shame. We need people like Saul Marantz!

End of rant. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Alll I can say, is that in my epxerence on a varatiy of makes, models and OS's those programs worked very well and caused no problems, including Dell, csutom built, and other brands, using OS's from Win 98 through XP-MCE 2005. Like I said, others will post thier opinions, but in my esperence those are the best of the lot for spyware/adware removal.

I may have inadvertantly clicked on the Orick advertisement on the right side of the Celiac message board, resulting in another Orick advertisement - so I guess it isn't technically "spam"?

Very likely spyware. I add my recommendation that you get Spybot or Ad-Aware that Vincent suggested.... I run both religiously and have never had any issues with them.

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not.. 
    • Golden Bell Pepper Soup (Gluten-Free)
      Dipping your spoon into this bell pepper–sweet potato combo is like dipping into a bowl of sunshine. It's stunning—and the perfect antidote to a gloomy winter's day. This soup also freezes well, so if you're not serving a crowd, store the leftovers for a later date (or make a double batch). I like to enjoy this soup accompanied by my Massaged Kale Salad with Spicy Hazelnuts View the full article
    • Southern-style BBQ Chicken (Gluten-Free)
      Barbecue season is upon us once again, and when I want barbecued chicken, nothing else will do. This recipe makes a sweet, tangy barbecue chicken that will have people smiling. View the full article

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
