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.

    • Me too. I still get transient lower back pain occasionally when my bladder or colon is full. It goes away immediately on voiding. Regardless of anything other diseases you may have, being wheat free gives you relief so even if not Celiac you are Non Celiac Wheat Sensitive. There are over 200 symptoms that are improved with GFD gluten free diet. Google it. It is an impressive list. In any case, while it is good to have a diagnosis, there is only one treatment, do not eat wheat and deal with the inevitable malnutrition damage.(think Biafra babies 1970.) Most will improve over time. Whatever doesn't improve should be investigated to be safe, but realize that recovery may take years. Wheat flour used should be limited to Paper Mache sculpture and library paste.  
    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
