Not as easy now he's moved out into his own unit though. Fortunately being on all Mac at home, we are still saved a lot of the malware threats. Maybe not for much longer, however. Up to now I have no trouble on TF with strange ads etc, Bruce, but I'm glad it sounds like you've got a fix already.

Merci Pierre !
I am not a professional into computers, I can only speak from my particular experience in those cases. I take the computer security of my company very seriously, our profession is regulated by strong rules from the French Ministry of Health, then we can't make any mistake.

Anyway the best antivirus package available is OURSELVES ! We must be smart, make sure our copy of windows has the latest patches, use the safest Internet browser with all the must-have adds-on and run weekly our favorite anti-virus & anti-malware & anti-spybot softwares.

Perhaps you can ask your son D..... to join the forum as a Commercial Member. They say a friend in need is a friend indeed but business is business

It`s possible to pick up something nasty clicking on links, we often click them on TF, trusting our anti virus systems keep us safe.
I confess. I`m a member of TF and I look at boat porn. (as to any other porn, I`m sayin nuthin.) It does seem a multitude of sites go with accessing TF threads.
In fairness, one concern I had with using an adblocker is that TF likely makes its money by ads placed. Blocking them prevents advertising reaching us, which may affect revenue. Though, the ads we see, sans adblocker (that`s one for Pilou) when logged in, are nothing to what you see not logged in. And many "guests" view TF.

No question to give revenue up.

Click on the small icon "ABP" then check on "Disable for TrawlerForum".
