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

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.

    • Ok so is this really true?!?! Conventional? Remember, the fecal transplant was first described in the 1950s, but took decades to catch on as a conventional treatment for gut disorders, such as c-dif bacteria, partly because it was seen as crude and somehow objectionable. But it proved to work. Really well. So much so that it's now a fairly conventional treatment.
    • You are super sweet. I'm sorry your extended family isn't great about get togethers and cards. My family is the same. Once my parents died I don't have anyone who really cares about me except for my husband and kids. My parents started getting really weird about stuff as they got older, and my sisters are way older than me and we didn't grow up together, so we aren't close at all. In fact one sister hates me. They didn't even come to our parents funerals. Families pretty much suck so you gotta appreciate whatever you can put together for a support system. I come here every day looking for a smile or laugh, an encouraging word, or an opportunity to give advice. You guys are definitely part of my extended family   for what it's worth I would be up for secret santa.
    • Wow everyone my memory lane stuff just keeps popping up on this forum!!!! Thanks for sharing the post op and Audrey the pic. I had what looked like this on my inner left ankle in my late 20's!  It never got diagnosed at the time. I was seeing Dr's at time early pregnancy and then missed miscarriage.  dr's I had at the time I asked didn't know what it was. Period of time I had some of the worst headaches of my life etc. I didn't know if I had been bitten by a spider (brown recluse not in my area though) , the miscarriage, or picked up something from the hospital during my follow up miscarriage stuff-stirrup /ankle. I don't have a pic of it to share. Dr's didn't know, my mom a nurse didn't know , that left my husband who is a bit more holistic based and helped me on healing it  at home. I am really shocked to see see posts and all too often say wow! That's my .... from whatever decade  I'm newly recognized/diagnosed too so this was 15 years ago! wow if any one has any active pg I wish you comfort and swift healing . Been there but didn't have the puzzle piece until you gave it to me now. so many puzzle pieces....finally .....start making an image since I joined this forum.    
    • I can guarantee you that once you get your weight back up to normal, your period will come back.  You sound really malnourished and if your weight gets too low, your periods will stop.  Don't panic.......I was down to about 92-94 pounds at diagnosis so you will be able to heal if you do the diet correctly and don't cheat. Once you start to feel better and your other problems are under control , you will find it easy to stick to the diet. Nothing beats health!  Good luck to you!
    • As the other's have stated, you most certainly can go on to have additional AI diseases whether or not you are Celiac or NCGS.  Many AI diseases can be figured out without mainstream testing, as you know from your severe symptoms of Sjogren's.  I also have Sjogren's and knew that I did without any doubt because of the severity of my symptoms.  I was later tested with a new PCP and yes, they confirmed what I already knew.  Have you had the blood work for Sjogren's?  Not that it matters because you already know. As Sjogren's really has no treatment other than treating the symptoms, having a confirmed diagnosis doesn't always matter.  Just see the doctors you need to see for the specific problems you have stemming from it and that's all you can really do.  So far, it has worked for me.
